ER Classics Desktop 2022

During the Concours d'Elégance Palace Het Loo (2 and 3 July 2016), Renault is putting the spotlight on the Formula 1 racer RE 30 B9 by Alain Prost from 1982. At the time, Renault had an important share in the field of turbo technology developments in the Formula 1. The Renault RE 30 B9, which gives a presence in Apeldoorn, is the direct successor of the Renault RE 30. Alain Prost won the Dutch Grand Prix in Zandvoort in 1981.

The Renault RE 30 marked the start of a new era for Renault in 1981: the all-new car had a shorter wheelbase than its predecessor, was very light (595 kg) and was driven by an 1.492 cm3 V6 turbo engine. The Renault RE 30 'B9' in which Alain Prost drove in 1982, had a power of 480 kW (650 hp) at 11.500 rpm Prost started the Renault RE 30 B9 five times off pole position and won the Grand Prix of South Africa and Brazil .
