Will Palmer set for battle in Formula Renault title decider this weekend

Will Palmer heads to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya this weekend (28-29 October) facing a Formula Renault Eurocup championship showdown with season-long challenger Sacha Fenestraz.

The R-ace GP driver is 52.5 points behind his rival, but with three races in Spain this weekend and a total of 75 points on offer, there's still a good chance of Will securing the title if results go his way. Should he emerge triumphant, he'll join an illustrious line-up of drivers including Valtteri Bottas and Stoffel Vandoorne as one of the past decade's European Formula Renault champions.

This is the first time the BRDC Superstar will have raced at the Spanish Grand Prix venue, and he will be hoping to end a successful season in style. Will has been a title contender throughout the year with three victories and six further podium finishes, including a second place last time out at Spa Francorchamps, and he has finished all but two races in the points.

Qualifying for the first race of the weekend starts at 9am on Saturday, before the first encounter gets underway at 12.35. A second qualifying session takes place at 17.30 on Saturday afternoon before the final two races of the year at 10.40 and 16.00 on Sunday.

Will said: "It's been a bit of a break since the last race at Spa but I'm really looking forward to the final round at Barcelona. The gap to the leader is quite large but you never know what can happen in motorsport. I haven't raced at Barcelona before but I have driven there and really enjoy the track. Overall it's been a really enjoyable season, and I would love to finish it back on the top step."
