R.S. Days came to Israel at the end of January when record-breaking Renault Sport pilot Laurent Hurgon was the star of a fantastic day on the Motor City Track outside Tel Aviv.
Carasso Motors, who have been Israel’s exclusive Renault importers since 1948 and are a familiar presence on Tel Aviv’s Hamasger Street, hosted VIP clients, local media reporters, influencers & bloggers for what all agreed was a thrilling event.
Renault Sport Clients were able to experience Hot Laps on the track with Hurgon, either in the Mégane R.S. Sport with Cup Chassis or in their own cars.
The 2km track is about 1.5 hours from Tel Aviv at Kibbutz Hatzerim, near the southern city of Beer Sheva, and opened in 2018 as Israel’s very first auto racetrack.
One of the track’s big advantages is its year-round sunshine, which the R.S. day highlighted, and it has ambitions to become an all-season testing ground for European carmakers.
The warm hospitality, exciting laps with Hurgon in perfect conditions and the chance to meet with like-minded enthusiasts all contributed to a successful event that will no doubt become a regular feature in the diaries of Israel’s many Renault Sport fans.
