F1 team has announced that Sochi, Russia will be the latest stop on its 2009 Roadshow calendar.
Romain Grosjean and demo driver Adam Khan have been slated to drive the team's F1 cars in the Russian city on Friday September 18.
The event will be run in collaboration with MegaFon, one of the team's partners, under the support of the Sochi City Government and will coincide with the Sochi Economic Forum, which will be chaired by Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, and attended by President Dmitry Medvedev.
"Our Roadshow events continue to take the sport to the public and offer fans the chance to get close to the team and experience F1 in a friendly and relaxed environment," said Renault
managing director, Flavio Briatore.
"The decision to stage this event in Sochi, which is undergoing such massive transformation as it readies for the 2014 Winter Olympics, is the ideal way to showcase the unique atmosphere of F1 within a new yet unexplored market where we know there to be significant interest in our sport."
Renault plans to take its single, two and three-seater experiential F1 cars normally used during its Feel-It day programmes in France to the event to allow selected media and guests at the Economic Forum the exclusive opportunity to experience a passenger ride in an F1 car.
Grosjean is excited about the trip to Russia: "Renault's Roadshow events are always special and the chance to drive an F1 car on the streets of Sochi is something I'm really looking forward to," he added.
"I will do my best to put on a spectacular show for the fans and give a few lucky people the drive of a lifetime."
will also transport a number of its historic racing cars, as well as pit-stop equipment and race simulators to allow the assembled audience to get a hands-on feel for the excitement of F1.
