Renault open day stars in National Motorsport Week.

The ING Renault F1 team has announced that it will open the doors of its Enstone facility to the public as part of National Motorsport Week, providing a rare behind the scenes insight into the world of Formula One.

The open day takes place on Wednesday 12 August, midway through National Motorsport Week, which runs from 8-16 August, and after the F1 teams have returned to work following their enforced summer shut-down. The Motorsport Industry Association- inspired initiative aims to promote the excitement of motorsport to new audiences, hopefully resulting in greater interest among existing and potential spectators, competitors marshals and officials.

"Fans who enjoy F1 on TV are only experiencing the tip of a vast motorsport iceberg," MIA CEO Chris Aylett explained, "Every weekend during the season, there are
thousands of motorsport events around the UK they could watch live, assist with, compete in, photograph, report on for the media etc. National Motorsport Week is our way of opening people's eyes to the huge range of activities that are available to them - the scope is endless!"

While F1 operations generally remain away from the public gaze, National Motorsport Week has inspired rare glimpses behind the scenes, and every visitor to Enstone will be able to take a tour of Renault's award-winning, research centre, exhibition area and auditorium, visit the marque's heritage and communication centres - where Renault Sport cars which made history, such as RE30, RE40, Renault Alpine, Renault 5 turbo, Benetton F1 B195, R25, R26 and a replica of the Renault Type A - are on display.

There will also be the chance to sample the team's simulator, take part in an interactive pit-stop and steering wheel start procedure in the workshop bays, and have their photo taken in the 2009 F1 car, as well as meet and talk to mechanics, including the team's demonstration driver, Adam Khan, and display their skills on the team's Scalextric track.

Tickets are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis via an online booking form at www.the-mia.com/Events-Diary
