Our last Renault Car Club meeting (Monday 7th March) was really interesting for those with a passion for Renaults and Racing.
Seasoned racer Colin Osborne brought his Megane 265 race car along and told us all about his current exploits in the Australian Production Car Championship.
The Meganes (he runs 2 cars) have been purpose-built for circuit racing, whilst retaining much of the trim and equipment features as required by the rules of this championship.
The cars sport highly modified suspension, fuel system, exhaust, a full suite of safety equipment and a couple of engine tweaks to make them go faster! Plus of course a really flash paint job befitting a top level race car!
Colin Explained that both cars are exactly identical allowing the team to gather race data from one car and then apply directly to the other. Makes sense and of course we got a ‘guided tour’ of the Megane.
