Renault has joined forces with D.A Racing, the team run by the Dubourg family, and Motul to develop an ice-racing version of its highly popular Renault Zoe. The team will enter two Zoes into the upcoming series with none other than four-times champion Jean-Baptiste Dubourg behind the wheel. He will be joined by all-round race ace and Andros champion Nicolas Prost. This duo will be joined by Emmanuel Moinel in the Elite category.
For Jean-Baptiste Dubourg, who has always raced Renault-based cars, having factory support is a big deal. 'I've raced a Clio, and a Captur before, but getting the support from Renault with this new electric Zoe is a great honour for me. It feels like I've gone full circle. I'm very excited about racing in this car. In the past, I've always raced with the V6 engine, so getting used to this one will be a bit of a challenge.'
