GeordiePaul - yes its a Clio Cup. Looks just like a standard 172 apart from the colour - nice wheels but still 16 inch. The inside comes as a bit of a shock - seats look nice (but cloth rather than leather) but no climate control and quite a few other bits missing. They wouldnt let me take it on the track either ;-(
The Renalt people wouldnt even let us sit in the Meganes - they said they were prototypes. They had a Vel Satis and an Avantime there too.
Waiting to see the new Megane cabriolet - I reckon it might just be a stunner.
GR - the Renault guy told me (strictly off the record of course) that they wanted to make the 172 cheaper so that they could play in the market sector occupied by the 206GTI I guess this is important particularly in France. The weight difference is hardly anything at all - they just removed a lot of the expensive stuff. Who cares anyway, its still a very nice car and if the price difference means a few more people can afford one then so much the better.
The picture at the top of the page is the new Megane 3 door Sport Hatch - its quite big so may take a little while to load.
