    Background: The French state-owned car company - Renault - says it is planning competition programmes aimed at researching and commercialising some of its engines.

    SYNOPSIS: The showpiece of the Renault competition drive will be the Formula One racing car powered by an engine produced by Renault and the French state-owned ELF oil company.

    In 1972, work was commissioned for a competitive engine and the result was the prototype A 440, a V-shaped block of six cylinders.

    The descendant of various rally competitions and Formula Two vehicles is the Formula One V-6 of fifteen-hundred c.c's. It's turbo-charged like the two-litre engines of 1975.

    Renault plans to continue research on the Formula One car. It will be entered in selected races in the World Championship calender - hopefully, the Company says, by next year. The two-litre Formula Two car will continue to be entered in competition, and a car with the de-tuned road version of the engine will be put on the market.

    Apart from the prestige Formula racing cars, Renault says the 1977 season should see several Alpine-Renault models with the turbo-charged two-litre engines entered in the Le Mans 24 hour Classic.
