It is the team with the longest history in Eurocup Renault, as the series is set

to starto on the 23 April weekend at Monza. JD Motorsport remained faithful

to the French series for many years now and in one of the most interesting

seasons so far with quality circuits and ten rounds, will be fielding three

Tatuus cars for Jean‐Baptiste Simmenauer, Sun Yue Yang (a Chinese Renault

Academy driver) and Alexander Vartanyan, a Russian coming from the Junior

SMP program. Both SMP and Renault put their faith in JD confirming the

professional level of the team owned by Roberto Cavallari.

«In the last few months, Renault did an amazing job managing to create a 30‐

car field. Something that never happened in recent years. The series is the one

with the highest car counts at European levels. Renault also had to cap the

entry to 30 cars but there would have been space for more. There has been

good promotion too in the last few months. Some of the requests made by the

teams were put in practice, bridging the preexisting gap. Another key aspect is

that Eurocup welcomes drivers from the Red Bull Academy, together with

racers coming from the Renault and SMP programs. Recently, Red Bull had

left the series a bit and the return of young drivers is particularly significant in

terms of the return of Eurocup to a central role».
