For the 2014 season Cara de Vlaming will be coordinator of the FR NEC 1.6 Junior and the NEC FR 2.0 series. Cara is supported by the German NEC team of Ralph Weishaupt and has the technical support of RST (Renault Sport Technologies) from France.
The race weekends will be combined with the all-new Clio Cup Benelux.
The seven race weekends are divided among the Netherlands and Belgium plus one race in Germany. We have chosen well-known tracks to offer young talent the chance to gain the maximum experience. The selected tracks are the Spa-Francorchamps, Zandvoort, Assen, Zolder and the Nürburgring.
The season kicks off on the 21st of April during the famous Easter race weekend at the Zandvoort racing circuit. During the first weekend of June we have been invited to race at the well known World Series by Renault at what must be one of the best and most challenging tracks in the World: Spa-Francorchamps.
The World Series by Renault attracts an average audience of 75.000 spectators per weekend!
On July 12 and 13 we will visit another legendary GP track: the Nürburgring, again joining the World Series by Renault.
The first weekend of August the MotoGP TT Circuit Assen is on the agenda: Gamma Racing Day. With 78000 visitors last year an event to be proud of. Three Renault classes will compete there: the FR NEC 1.6 Junior, the NEC FR 2.0 and the Clio Cup Benelux.
On Saturday the 30th of August we will drive as support race of an historic event: the 24Hours of Zolder.
We return to the GP track of Spa Francorchamps on 4-5 October. The season will end where we started, at Zandvoort on 18-19 October.
At each of the race weekend we aim to have our own dedicated Renault Sport Paddock where all FR 1.6 NEC Junior and Clio Cup Benelux teams will be together. More details will follow later.
The organizers of the Swedish FR1.6 series have informed us that they will join a selection of our races and we are currently discussing with them some incentives for NEC Junior teams to do a few races in Sweden.
The MdH / FR NEC 1.6 Junior team is looking forward to the start of the season.
