Renault Sport F1 - Engine Test
Throughout its history, Renault has incorporated motorsport into its global
marketing and technical development strategy. The sport has proven to be an
effective testing ground for road car products, with
innovative track solutions for downsizing, reliability and electric
technology filtered through to the consumer ranges. With a powerful image
and prestige value, motorsport, especially Formula 1, has also strengthened
the brand in traditional markets while increasing visibility in emerging
Renault Sport F1 is the sporting division created by Renault to represent
its interests in the FIA Formula One World Championship and is tasked with
designing and building optimised engines that can be fully integrated into
a chassis package created by RSF1's carefully selected partner teams.
Present in the sport since 1977, Renault has won 11 Constructors' World
Titles and ten Drivers' World Titles in the championship, plus more than
200 pole positions and 150 wins.
The current power plant, the RS27, is a 750bhp V8 engine, in use since
2007. Identical units are supplied to four partner teams; triple world
champions Red Bull Racing; Lotus F1 Team, double world champions in 2005
and 2006 when racing as the Renault F1 Team; Caterham F1 Team and Williams
F1 Team. In 2012, this quartet scored nine wins and a total of 839 points,
with Red Bull Racing securing the double of the Drivers' and Constructors'
The main thrust of RSF1's work takes place at Viry-Châtillon, France,
which has traditionally been the technical hub of Renault's F1 activities.
RENAULT'S F1 HISTORY
Renault has competed in Grand Prix racing for over 35 years and has enjoyed
success as both an engine supplier and constructor.
The journey started when Amédée Gordini, who had created Grand Prix cars
under his own name, was recruited to design high performance cars for
The Dauphine Gordini appeared in 1957 and it was followed by further high
performance cars including the R8 Gordini and the R12 and R17. Gordini also
took the Renault name to Le Mans.
Gordini's facilities in Paris proved to be too small for the ambitious
project, so a new building outside the city was sought. The ideal location
was found at Viry-Châtillon, on the edge of the A6 motorway leading from
Paris to the south of France. The Gordini facility was inaugurated on 6
February 1969 and it was to be the launch pad for motor sport success over
the following decades.
The initial focus was on a new 2-litre V6 engine, which was officially
launched in January 1973. The engine soon proved to be competitive in the
prestigious European 2-litre sportscar series. That was followed by a move
into the FIA World Sportscar Championship with a turbocharged version of the engine. Gerard
Larrousse and Jean-Pierre Jabouille duly scored a historic first WSC win
for the marque at Mugello in 1975.
Renault Sport was founded in 1976. That year saw the birth of a parallel
single-seater programme with the V6 engine in European F2. Jean-Pierre
Jabouille won the F2 title in 1976, and Rene Arnoux repeated the success
the following year. Patrick Tambay and Didier Pironi also won races with
the Renault engine.
In sportscars the turbocharged Renaults
proved to be incredibly fast, securing a string of poles and fastest laps,
but bad luck robbed the team of good results. The main goal was of course
the Le Mans 24 Hours. Jabouille took pole in both 1976 and '77, but success
eluded the works team, although a Renault-engined Mirage took second place
in the latter year.
Everything came together in 1978 when Pironi and Jean-Pierre Jaussaud
scored a historic victory, with another Renault coming home fourth. With Le
Mans success finally secured, Renault could now focus on its other goal --
The option to run a turbocharged engine
had been in the rules for many years, but nobody had dared to pursue it
until Renault. It had quietly begun track testing with a 1.5-litre version
of the turbo engine in 1976, and a short
programme of races was scheduled for the following year.

4.9L flat 12 which has been upgraded with EFI via a Bigstuff3 PRO SEFI ECM
and twin Precision turboturbochargers. At this stage the motor is running
6psi Boost and has no internal
modifications. We ran it from 3500rpm to 7500rpm and it produced 650hp and
600lbs*ft of torque. Enjoy!
Also I just posted a new video on my channel showing a walk around of the
car with some of the new wheels and brakes mocked up on it. If you guys are

The JET Bicycle - The most dangerous unsafe bike EVER
An old womans bike built for shopping turned into a bomb inspired safety
hazzard. This is the final part in my series on the wonderfull pulse jet
and what an end.The jet will push the bike a little faster but its staying on thats the
challenage as some of the more keen eye'd people will have noticed the side
shaking , yes we could have cured it with better frame better wheels etc
but i like its a shit bike n still is.
Other videos in the series are
