Renault has announced that its F1 Roadshow will continue this year, with the first event taking place this weekend in Spain.

In recent years, the Renault F1 Team has lit up the streets of world capitals such as Warsaw, Moscow, Rome and Mexico City as well as other prominent global cities like Johannesburg and Sochi.

The Roadshow has also formed an important part of the successful World Series by Renault championship with the car running at selected championship events throughout the season - and the first Roadshow of 2010 will take place at the opening round of the 2010 WSbR, at the new Motorland Aragon circuit.

Renault will be using last year's race car, the R29, for the event, which will be driven by the team's reserve driver Jerome D'Ambrosio. He will be in action on Saturday and Sunday.

"The Renault F1 Roadshow has been a key part of the team's approach to F1 and that will continue in 2010," said team boss, Eric Boullier.

"By attending events like the World Series, we can take the sport closer to the fans and allow them to do things that simply wouldn't be possible during a Grand Prix weekend. We have some exciting plans for the rest of the year, which will continue to build on the strong reputation that our Roadshow has already established."

Renault's F1 Roadshow began in 2004 and the idea was a simple one - to make F1 more accessible.
