Renault calls time on one-make series

Renault have announced they are ending their one-make Renault Sport Trophy at the end of the year.

The championship was only launched in 2015, replacing the Renault Sport Megane Trophy, and featured unique cars based loosely on the 2012 Renault Alpine A110-50 concept car.

The cars, built around an LMP1-spec carbon fibre monocoque and powered by the same twin-turbo 3.8 litre V6 found in the Nissan GT-R, will be able to be modified so that they can continue to be used in some competitions that adhere to GT3 rules.

The decision comes one year after the French manufacturer pulled the plug on the popular Formula Renault 3.5 series, which has since lived on as Formula V8 3.5. The decision to end both series is thought to be a cost-cutting measure to allow them to focus their efforts on their Formula One and Formula E programmes.

The Formula Renault 2.0 category will continue.
