INTRODUCTION
After three consecutive years of exciting racing, Formula Renault 3.5 is back on
track with major evolutions.

Renault Sport Technologies is proud to launch the second generation of the World
Series by Renault major protagonist: New Formula Renault 3.5.

Performances and reliability were our main concerns during the three months
development campaign that lead us to 6 different circuits, 17 days of testing with
four different drivers and a total of 4600 km.

Bio fuel compliancy is a major change that will enable the series to get along with
environmental issues. Formula One R27 style directly links the car to one of the
greatest achievement of Renault.

We strongly recommend you to study this manual attentively to ensure a good
reliability level of your cars.

As in previous years, Renault Sport Technologies and partners will offer you
technical support during the tests and events of the World Series by Renault. Our
engineering staff will also be available to help with any problem encountered with
the car.

We wish you an enjoyable and successful 2008 season.

Renault Sport Technologies
Racing Technical Support Dpt.
