Royal Horticultural Halls Chosen for Exclusive Formula One Launch

We are proud to have been chosen by the Renault Sport Formula One Team for the launch of its 2017 challenger, the R.S.17. The showcase took place at our historical London venue, in front of international media and team partners.

Groupe Renault Executive Vice President, Thierry Koskas, and Managing Director of Renault Sport, Cyril Abiteboul, were joined by new partners and sponsors, including BP, Castrol and MAPFRE at the Lindley Hall. The launch was the first public unveiling of the new Renault Sport brand identity, designed to show car enthusiasts the strong link between Renault Sport Racing and Renault Sport Cars.

The R.S.17 was unveiled by race drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Jolyon Palmer, whilst the Third and Reserve Driver, Sergey Sirotkin, was also announced.

Our prestigious hall assisted the luxury unveiling, our three-tonne goods lift safely transported the R.S.17 off the London streets and onto a purpose-built, unique rotating stage, for guests to admire it from every angle.

Fergus Wilson, Head of Commercial Operations said: “We were delighted to host the launch of the incredible Renault Sport Racing Formula 1.

“The Lindley Hall offers dynamic, high-class events the perfect blend of historic backdrop with contemporary facilities, providing a large scale blank canvas space, combined with fantastic architecture.”

“Our professional team of event experts were on hand to help Wedgewood Britain successfully pull together the R.S.17 launch.”

Vanessa Lewisohn of events management company, Wedgewood Britain, said: “We would like to thank the team at the Royal Horticultural Halls for helping to make the Renault event such a great success. We knew it would take a team of real professionals to pull together the necessary levels of service and efficiency to make it work. And work it did!”
