The team's test and third driver, Lucas Di Grassi, will be the man behind the wheel of last year's R27 car, as he takes to a temporary street circuit based around some of the most famous roads in Lisbon. Around 100,000 spectators are expected to attend the free event.
"We are really looking forward to this demonstration," explained Colin Hale, the technical coordinator for Renaults Roadshow activities. "Each event is a new challenge for us and an opportunity to improve the show that we put on. We can't wait to see the reaction of the public and will do everything to make this event special as Lisbon echoes to the sounds of our Formula One cars for the first time."
Portugal last hosted a Grand Prix in 1996. Jacques Villeneuve won the race, held at the Estoril circuit, in his Renault-engined Williams.
