Renault Energy F1 to power Caterham F1 Team from 2014

Renault Sport F1 and Caterham F1 Team are delighted to confirm the extension of their partnership in the FIA Formula One World Championship for a further three years.

Caterham will use the Renault Energy F1 Power Unit, the V6 turbocharged engine equipped with potent energy recovery systems

From next year, Caterham F1 Team will be equipped with the Renault Energy F1, a cutting edge power plant designed for the radical new 2014 technical regulations.

The Energy F1 unites a V6 turbocharged direct injection internal combustion engine with two motor generator units that harvest energy dissipated in the exhaust gasses and brakes and deploy as both electrical and mechanical power.

When combined the energy systems and engine will produce more power than the current V8 engines, however will be more than 35% more energy efficient thanks to technical and sporting regulations that prescribe a fuel flow limit of 100kg/h and maximum quantity of 100kg permitted per race.

The extended partnership will see Renault and Caterham F1 Team work together for a further three years in F1

The Anglo-Malaysian team and the French manufacturer first teamed up for the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship, with the Renault RS27 V8 engine powering the team in subsequent seasons.

Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal, Caterham F1 Team added: ‘This announcement is obviously very good news for our F1 team and is a reflection of the deep bonds that have been created between our two businesses since 2011, particularly with the roadcar project we launched in 2012 between Caterham and Alpine, which is now at an advanced stage in development.

Volvo Truck – The new Volvo FM Competition



“The new Volvo FM will provide drivers with a completely new level of handling and an innovative cab environment. Transport companies will have an efficient truck with increased flexibility,” says Claes Nilsson, President Volvo Trucks.

The Volvo FM is next in line in the rapid renewal of Volvo Trucks’ product range – with the groundbreaking innovation Volvo Dynamic Steering as one of its prominent features.

The Volvo FM will be equipped with Volvo Dynamic Steering, which combines a conventional hydraulic power steering system with an electronically regulated electric motor fitted to the steering gear. The system gives the driver effortless steering at low speeds as well as unbeatable directional stability on the open road.

On-line “Paparazzi” competition
The official launch of the Volvo FM is on March 19, but Volvo Trucks is already giving the public the opportunity to catch a glimpse of it. Starting today, two unmasked trucks will embark on an extensive two-week tour across Europe. The sharpest-eyed “paparazzi” along the route will be rewarded by the Swedish truck maker.

“We want the public to send us the first snapshots of the new truck. The images will be published on a dedicated website and the winners will be invited to an exclusive test drive of the new truck in Gothenburg,” says Jeff Bird, Director Press tests at Volvo Trucks and the project leader of the competition.

Each of the trucks is following a separate route throughout Europe. The two trucks have distinctive stripes to make them stand out from the surrounding traffic. The truck will be launched in Europe on March 19, but it can already be spotted on public roads as part of a competition to be the first to see the new FM.
