The Renault Megane R.S Trophy-R has set a new record for a front wheel drive car around the legendary Spa-Francorchamps racing circuit. The new record time is 2’48’’338 which is more than 5 seconds quicker than the previous record.

Test driver Laurent Hurgon said:

“I am, once again, really proud and delighted,” explained Hurgon after the record-breaking lap. “Spa-Francorchamps is one the most exciting circuits in Europe for drivers. It is very fast and complex and the car is perfect for this configuration. The work done on the aerodynamic balance takes all its value. The sensations in the Raidillon, Pouhon and Blanchimont corners are really excellent. What a pleasure!”
