Fielding to test Eurocup Formula Renault machinery
British F4 runner-up Sennan Fielding will test a Formula Renault 2.0 car at Estoril later this month after being offered the opportunity to take part in the Eurocup’s official rookie test.
The 20-year-old doesn’t yet know which team he will run with but is confident of showing what he’s capable of no matter which team he’s with as he evaluates his options for 2017.
“It [the Eurocup] was going to be something we were looking at for next year anyway, we were interested in going down that route,” said Fielding. “Renault Sport sent me an email asking if I would like to do the official rookie test. I was like ‘sure, 100 per cent!’ It’s such a good opportunity.
“The Formula Renault is a really good car and as long as I have the car underneath me I can go out and prove what I can do. I haven’t been in a Formula Renault for absolutely ages, about two years, and it’s a new circuit for me so it’s going to be a challenge but I’m really looking forward to it.”
