Have you guys seen what has replaced the Meganes on Steroids of yester year in the Renault Sport Trophy series?

Between not playing project cars i watch Motors Tv and i didn't have any idea Renault had created these 1 off GT style race cars (RS01), they looked absolutely amazing and they don't sound too shabby either.

I can't find youtube footage of the race but it was a brilliant to watch them.

With the Project Cars game featuring Renaults already i have my fingers crossed that these come too! :cool:

EDIT - look what i found for you :)

Well the car is already to download for Assetto Corsa so I suspect it wount be long before we can drive this "monster" renault R.S.01 "in Project Cars.

But it's just a mod for AC, nothing official.

Still attempting to follow them on tv and the racing has got a lot closer now the teams understand the cars a little more its great to watch.
Last race i watched was the Silverstone round where one of the drivers doors sprung open while racing and he was black/orange flagged to come in to get it closed.

SMS please consider this car as you already have a renault license thing going on :cool:

ahhh the sound of GT-R V6's. Good stuff.

Driveclub got it as a free car not too long again. Would be a fun car to inject it into "GT3?"

GT3 would be nice but i think having it as its own class would be good like Ginetta Jrs so you can run a league / series in just the 1 make.
I quite like 1 make championships - really puts emphasis on tuning and who just got it better on the day.

Don't think so. It's not a production based car, so it's not compliant with gt3 rules. But it's a cup car with its own championship.

Have to agree, it would be a great addition to Pcars as a spec series race car.

It is a mod. An awful mod that is made with ripped models from real racing 3 for AC.

That mod can barely even move straight without spinning out.

Way too fast for GT3 too. I saw timing from their Spa race and the things were turning 2:12 laps. That's closer to LMP2 pace! It's like DTM's sexier-looking cousin.

Yep, those things are fast. Wanna drive those on Project Cars . You have my blessings to start it. :D

Classic supertouring formula of a 100% purpose built racing chassis, racing engine, and a bodyshell that kinda sorta maybe if you squint really hard looks a bit like some real car. =)

Looks like a better sorted R8 to me.

Renault is definitely having some fun with this basic formula of mid-engine silhouette. We just got an early export of the Megane Trophy V6 running and I can't tell you how much fun that thing is! Amazing balance of power, grip, and mass. It will really be a showcase where the best drivers rise to the top.

Bah, Renault Megane is a single class in real life, who will it race with?

Still, I am really looking forward to the Megane Cup, been putting way too much time in the Clios so far as it is a blast to drive. Still kinda hope we will get RS01 single cup in pcars.

I was at Silverstone for the last round (It's a support race for the formula renault 3.5) and they note in the programme that the cars speed puts it between a gt3 car and a dtm.

I was at Silverstone on Sunday as well. The RS01 is an amazing race car to watch, I think (but not 100%) they have the same engine as the Nissan GT-R.

From the sides it looks so much like an R8 it could pass for a Chinese ripoff.:)

Some interesting info came out while i was watching the RS01 renault cup on MotorsTV on Sunday.
They said that a package is being developed which will put the RS01 in GT3 and GTLM specification with a hope of customers buying the car to race in GT3 Series / GTLM.

Then the commentary guy picked up on something, that for the car to be used in GT3 when its brought down to meet those specifications it also has be a road going production car, EG - something anyone could buy to drive on the road (rules of GT3 - cars must also be available as production models)

So either the guy working for Renault got it wrong or Renault are going to be bringing out a road going RS01 car.

So seeing this in GT3 / GTLM going trim is not impossible its really only down to them being bought to be used in those series when the package is right.

Damm I am going to have another mid life crisis if that comes out .... first one was with the Megane R26

He pretty much said that he hopes customer racing teams take a chance and believe in what they have created and it should take off from there.
I'm quite excited about it i want to see it running against other cars rather than just a field of RS01's, would be excited to see what a road car model would be like too.

It was all on motors tv on Sunday so if i can find the clip anywhere i'll post it up, my ears only pricked up when he said they are getting a package together that will make it GT3 and GTLM compatible

Then the commentary guy That'll be John Hindhaugh from Radio Le Mans, probably the most passionate, knowledgeable & interesting commentator since Murray
I heard him say something about it potentially being used in VLN etc. but I didn't catch the whole sentence.
Interesting race yesterday if for the 2 team mates at the end :devilish:

I was wondering how long it was going to be until it all went wrong, great for the viewers !

Hearing Race3 coments this weekend too. It does seems they'll dumb down the car to GT3 specs although not eligible because it is not a production based car for that class.

IMO i'd just keep the RS01 as it is :D
