On September 5th-6th after an absence of more than three years, World Series by Renault powers back to British shores at Silverstone for what promises to be another weekend packed with thrilling racing action, involving some of motorsport's most exciting young talents.

Playing host to some of motorsport's most revered and successful racing championships, the Silverstone round of World Series by Renault will feature the Formula Renault (FR) 3.5 Championship, the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and the Renault Sport Trophy as part of an action-packed programme.

You only have to look at the FR 3.5 championship's alumni to recognise its contribution to the highest echelons of motorsport. Former FR3.5 champions include Toro Rosso standout Carlos Sainz Jr and McLaren podium winner Kevin Magnussen, while current F1 drivers Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Pastor Maldonado, Will Stevens and Roberto Merhi have all used the series as a rung on their career ladders over the years.

Fittingly, as Silverstone prepares to host the first FR3.5 race in the UK since 2012, a British driver currently leads the standings, with Fortec Motorsport's Oliver Rowland arriving on home soil with a healthy 26 point advantage over France's Matthieu Vaxiviere.

Indeed, based on previous years, if you come to the World Series by Renault in September, there is almost a guarantee that you will be seeing one, two or more drivers on their route towards F1, with highly-rated names including Red Bull-backed Dean Stoneman, McLaren junior Nyck de Vries and Mercedes Petronas-affiliated Jazeman Jaafar.

Furthermore, there is a chance to look even further into the future with the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup, won in previous years by Stoffel Vandoorne and Valtteri Bottas, while current Red Bull Racing driver Daniil Kvyat won nine races in the series on his journey to the F1 podium.

Young Swiss driver Louis Deletraz - son of former F1 driver and sportscar ace Jean-Denis Deletraz - currently leads the way from Britain's own Jake Hughes, while fellow local drivers Ben Barnicoat and Jack Aitken have also enjoyed their time on the podium in 2015.

Making use of the RS.01, a stunning concept car-turned-race car, the Renault Sport Trophy offers one-make thrills with one of the motorsport's most attractive-looking machines.

Better still, World Series by Renault promises to offer far more than just on-track racing, with spectators invited to get as close as they can to the action with pit-walks, the Renault Sport Show and even a demonstration from the Infiniti Red Bull F1 team, not to mention plenty of stands, stalls and activities to keep fans of all ages happy.
