Renault have revealed that its successful Formula 1 roadshow will be heading to one of the biggest and busiest cities in the world for the next stop on its tour - Mexico City.

Having already wowed crowds with spectacular demonstrations in Warsaw, Rotterdam and Johannesburg, Central America will beckon for the team as they head to Mexico to put on the biggest show yet over the course of two days.

A 1.4km stretch of the Paseo de la Reforma is to be closed for the event to create a 2.8km circuit on which the crowds can line and watch Giancarlo Fisichella and Nelson Piquet Jr. put the title-winning R26 through its paces.

It is appropriate that Renault is conducting their roadshow in a nation that has not held a grand prix since 1992, as that 15th and final race had pole position won by Nigel Mansell in the Williams-Renault.

Although Mexico is being mooted for a place on the calendar in the coming years again, Piquet and Fisichella are nonetheless delighted to be bringing Formula 1 back to the nation through the roadshow.

"I am delighted to be taking part in the Mexico City Roadshow," Piquet Jr said. "I have never been to Mexico before, and I think the atmosphere will be fantastic! I'm going to put on a great show for the Mexican people. It has been a while since they last saw what an F1 car can do, and I know they love motorsport over there. It should be a great weekend."
