Renault by Oreca engine keeps on being tested
Just three months ago Renault Sport Technologies and Oreca announced their participation in the FIA F3 European Championship as an engine supplier. Lead by Oreca’s engine department based in Magny-Cours and with the support of Renault Sport Technologies, the development of the Renault by Oreca engine is running its course according to the established programme and a photo has recently appeared on the Oreca’s Facebook Fan Page. The next step in Renault’s return to F3 is a first roll-out planned in March.
After the design phase, the 2,000cc four-cylinder naturally aspirated direct injection engine keeps on being tested. Proof that the project progresses significantly, one Renault by Oreca engine was taken to Italy, more precisely to Dallara’s workshop, in January. The aim was to check the installation of the engine in the chassis and to adjust the last details for real. The next installation will take place within the team Signature who will line-up two Dallara-Renault this season.
