If you didn’t now already, Renault Sport is the motorsports and performance arm of French manufacturer, Renault. Think M3 Division for BMW. Renault Sport is responsible for saliva-inducing performance hatches like the Megane Sport 250 and the newly-released Clio Renault Sport 200. Both very driver-centric, track-ready cars. Renault Sport in Malaysia is represented by TC Euro Cars Sdn Bhd.
With the involvement in the local series Renault Sport aims to increase awareness of performance cars, especially towards car and driving enthusiasts. In my opinion, a huge win for both Renault Sport and Ignition.my in terms of brand visibility, credibility and exposure.
The MegaLAP Time Attack Series was first introduced in 2011, and has enjoyed much success – with each round seeing the participation of up to 100 cars, comprising mostly modified street-tuned vehicles.
Grassroots racing events like MegaLAP and the popular Saturday Night Fever Series (SNF) has provided enthusiasts a platform to indulge in motorsports in a safe and affordable manner. Being a motorsports enthusiasts myself, MegaLAP and SNF gets a big thumbs up for taking racing off the streets and into a safe, closed, controlled environment.
