2012 WSR calendar almost ready


Like in 2011 this year World Series by Renault include 17 races during nine weekends. Season begins and ends in Spain, at Motorland Aragón and Barcelona respectively. Six-week summer break in July-August is also retained. But all season was “shifted” three weeks later as WSR introduces a brand-new car and everybody needs to get to grips with the new machinery.
Perhaps the most important novelty is WSR’s first visit to Russia. Eagerly awaited races on the brand-new Moscow Raceway are scheduled to July 14-15. They should mark first time for major international racing series to visit Russia.
Competitive season is preceded by six official test-days. It may seem a lot but teams and drivers will certainly have a tough time to sort out the new cars.
