Docklands Shines as Precious Renault Diamonds Roll in

My Drive | Written by Adam Tonkin  The Victorian Renault Car Club’s annual Round-Up takes place on Sunday 19th February at the Waterfront City, Docklands. More than 80 unique and historic vehicles dating from the dawn of the century-old company will be on display, along with a choice selection of the 2012 model year range. Representing Renault’s long sporting heritage will be trio of historic Gordini models, comprising 8 Gordini, 12 Gordini and a 17 Gordini, while a more recent 2011 example is sure to bring the Gordini sub-brand right up-to-date. A contemporary Clio Cup racecar will also be on display. Demonstrating Renault’s long and successful history at the very pinnacle of motorsport will be the Alpine A110, winner of the 1973 Monte Carlo Rally and World Rally Championship and its successor the Alpine A310, winner of the 1977 French Rally Championship.

Renault Sport will be well represented at the 2012 Round-Up with Clio Sport 200 models, as well as the Mégane Sport 250 Coupe, including one of the six identical race-prepared cars that will contest the Red Bull Race Off at the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park on March 15-18. While the magnetic attraction of the cars will be hard to resist, ambassador Gabriel Gaté will be on hand to tempt visitors with a variety of tasty concoctions, produced at a cooking demonstration between 11.30 am and 12.30 pm.
