Formula Renault is two classes of formula racing popular in Europe and elsewhere. Regarded as an entry-level series to motor racing, it was first founded in 1971, and is a respected series where drivers can learn advanced racecraft before moving on to higher formulas.
The Formula Renault 95 used multiple chassis, production 2.0-litre 8V 165 hp engines and Hewland five-speed manual gearboxes. Manufacturers were able to build cars around spec components such as the engine, bellhousing, gearbox, brakes, wheels and ECU. Chassis were steel space frame with fibreglass bodies. Manufacturers included Mygale, Martini, Swift, Tatuus, and Ermolli.

In the mid-1990s, Renault commissioned Martini to develop a school formula for its academy for future Formula One drivers. The result of this development was a 10-unit series of Mk. 70s, of which 8 survive. In the mid-1990s, Renault commissioned Martini to develop a school formula for its academy for future Formula One drivers. The result of this development was a 10-unit series of Mk. 70s, of which 8 survive.The basis of the formula is an aluminium monocoque (not a tubular frame) with maximum use of then commonly available parts: the engine was derived from the Renault Laguna 2.0 8V or Renault Clio Sport dry-sump Renault Clio Sport brakes (discs today e.g. Dacia Logan), manual 5-speed Hewland gearbox. The emphasis in the design was on versatility, safety, ease of repair and low running costs. The result of the design is a simple, unpretentious machine that can be used as an entry-level formula for various club races or hill climbs.
