Renault will warm up French Formula 1 fans with a spectacular demonstration down the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, later this month.
The team will run one contemporary F1 car and one historic car down the world-famous seafront boulevard on Sunday 11 March, just under 100 days from the return of the French Grand Prix.
The demonstration will unite two of this year’s most eminent sporting events in the South of France; the French Grand Prix and an iconic cycle race.
Formula 1 returns to France after an absence of 10 years this year, with the event taking place at the Circuit Paul Ricard on 24 June.
The F1 cars will complete two runs on the Sunday during the deciding stage.
