Item Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1979 The recent entry of a Renault team into Formula One motor racing has been welcomed by all areas of the sport. Renault won the first ever Grand Prix in 1906. The Renault is unique in Formula One racing in that it is the only car to be powered by a turbo-charged 1,500 c.c. engine which gives the car the advantage of lower fuel consumption. Totally different driving skills are needed in the turbo driven car and Renault will be strong contenders for the 1979 World Championship. The Renault RS 01 is a new addition to the Scalextric range for 1979.
1980 The Renault team have been making considerable progress over the last two seasons with their unique 1500cc turbo-charged engines. Totally different driving skills are needed when handling a turbo-charged car which has the distinct advantage of lower fuel consumption. With a magnificent victory in the 1979 French Grand Prix the turbo-charged engine has ensured a place for itself in the 1980 season. The Renault RS01 a recent addition to the Scalextric range gives a fine account of itself in any race.
1981 Powered by the 1500cc turbo-charged Renault V6 engine.
1982 The Renault team have scored two fine victories on their home ground with the 1500cc turbo charged cars. The French Grand Prix at Dijon in 1979 and 1981 were both won by Renault providing the home crowds with an extra boost.
The Renault team have been firmly committed to the turbo charged engine since the late 70ís. A great deal has been learned and constant improvements are being made to their designs and the 1500cc Renault engine produces incredible torque. The cars perform best on circuits where they have to brake hard and accelerate fast away from comers thus utilising the full power available from the turbo charged engines. The Scalextric model is a fine representation of the RS-01.
