New circuit joins World Series calendar.

Renault has announced that a deal has been struck with the new Motorland Aragon motorsports complex that will see the Spanish venue added to the schedule for the 2009 and 2010 seasons.

Combining sport, technology, leisure and culture, Motorland Aragón is one of three large projects launched in recent months by the government of the Aragon province. Entirely devoted to motorsport, the 350-hectare complex will feature three international standard tracks on tarmac, dirt and karting, a technology park and a leisure area. Designed by Hermann Tilke in collaboration with Pedro de la Rosa, the 5.345km-long tarmac track is set to be the showpiece of the project.

In a move aimed at promoting the complex, the only one of its kind in Europe, the promoters of Motorland Aragon have elected to go into partnerships with the World Series and will organise two World Series by Renault meetings in 2009 and 2010. Renault Sport Technologies will also be able to use the complex for thirty days per year for testing purposes and promotional events.

"The World Series by Renault and Motorland Aragon share the same determination to make motorsport more accessible and fun for all. It therefore makes complete sense for us to welcome this innovative complex among our sponsors," Jose-Louis Lopez, Renault Sport Technologies' commercial and motorsport director said. "We also hope that the World Series by Renault will continue to be hosted by the Catalunya track. In 2009, for example, we expect the season to open in Barcelona and finish in Alcaniz.

"We are also excited about the idea of using Motorland Aragon for vehicle development. With eight different tracks and a warm climate, this would make an ideal base for vehicle testing or for the winter collective test sessions."
