Host of the penultimate round of the Renault Sport Trophy and Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, Circuit Spa-Francorchamps was the decider for the first titles of the year at the conclusion of an action-packed weekend. While fans could take in the many activities in the Village alongside the Renault display, eyes were also peered towards Robert Kubica, making a return to circuit racing, but also on newly crowned champions Lando Norris and Fabian Schiller. Renault Sport Formula One Team test driver, Nicholas Latifi also thrilled the public with the F1 demonstration runs!

Norris becomes the youngest Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 laureate
 
Discreet during practice against local driver Max Defourny (R-ace GP), Lando Norris (Josef Kaufmann Racing) found is form on Saturday taking pole position. Avoiding all the pitfalls of the Belgian circuit, the rookie of the year scored big points, finishing on the podium next to Tech 1 Racing team mates Hugo de Sadeleer, who claimed his maiden win, and Dorian Boccolacci.
 
With his back against the wall, Max Defourny came out swinging on Sunday, taking the pole, but the Belgian driver got swallowed up by the draft and an animated field. Once again, Lando Norris drove error-free and second place behind Dorian Boccolacci was good enough to sew up the title. Hugo de Sadeller completed the podium.
While Lando Norris follows Jack Aitken in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 record books, the battle rages on among Dorian Boccolacci, Max Defourny and Harrison Scott for the overall top-three. The final round at Estoril promises to be explosive!
