Italian team Vergani Racing has launched a legal action against the organisers of the new World Series by Renault after being denied an entry to the 2005 campaign.

Promoter RPM Racing and Renault Sport Technologies have been issued with notice of intent to sue by Vergani Racing, which is claiming damages estimated at more than E3million following what it considers to be 'unfair and unjustified exclusion' from the World Series by Renault in 2005.

Vergani had been a staunch supporter of the World Series by Nissan which preceded the new championship, but occasionally failed to run a car owing to its drivers' sponsorship shortfalls. The team has announced, since being left off the World Series entry, that it is to cease competitive activity, and has begun to sell off its equipment and cars.
