PETALING JAYA: TC Euro Cars (TCEC), the sole franchise holder of Renault vehicles in Malaysia, recently organised the ‘Renault Driving Experience’ event, which aims to promote road safety while offering enhanced ownership experience to Renault owners in Malaysia.

Held at the Sepang International Circuit, the ‘Renault Driving Experience’ event is an extension of the Renault Track Day, which has been held a few times a year since 2010.

Designed to offer enhanced ownership experience for Renault Sport owners, the high-speed track sessions provide these motorsports fans with a chance to hone their driving skills in a safe environment.

To raise awareness of and impart practical skills necessary for safe driving, TCEC has for the first time, organised a defensive driving course for Renault Captur and Fluence owners.

“We wanted to better equip our customers with some key defensive driving skills, as many traffic collisions can be avoided if drivers are better prepared to react to various scenarios and conditions on the road.

“The Track Day sessions have been well received by Renault Sport owners. Now with an expanding line-up of mainstream Renault vehicles, we wanted to engage with customers of these models as well and enhance their ownership experience,"said CEO, TC Euro Cars, Kuan Kim Luen.

The Renault Defensive Driving Experience started off with a theory lesson about the importance of having clear vision by studying the road ahead, understanding oversteering and understeering, the importance of using indicators and all occupants fastening safety belts, tips on highway driving, driving in the rain including not using hazard lights while driving in heavy rain, as well as other general dos and don’ts.

A total of 30 Renault owners participated in the defensive driving course.

TCEC plans to hold the Renault Driving Experience yearly to offer track day sessions as well as the defensive driving course for Renault Sport and Renault owners in Malaysia.
