Formula Renault UK Cancelled for 2012
Sad news from Formula Renault UK that they will not be running for 2012. The series which has in the past produced many top level drivers including Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen had only six entries this year from Josh Webster, Josh Hill, Shahaan Engineer, Dan de Zille, Gabriel Casagrande and Jake Dennis.
Renault UK Managing Director Thierry Sybord said: “This is the most sensible decision for all concerned. Initially there is a feeling of shock that this prestigious series will not take place this year but, upon reflection, trying to run the Formula Renault UK Championship in its current state is unacceptable for the drivers, teams, sponsors, suppliers and, of course, the spectators.”
