Renaud Savoya leaves Mugen Seiki

Renaud Savoya leaves Mugen Seiki

Triple European Champion Renaud Savoya has gotten in touch to tell us that he will not be renewing his contract with Mugen. Keeping tight lipped about his new sponsor, Renaud, who is currently based in the US working for RB Products, also informed us that he will not continue his driver/mechanic relationship with his father:

After 6 years driving with Mugen, I decided not to renew my contract with the Japanese factory. I’m really happy with all the great results we had together since 2005, being 3 times French Champ’, 3 times Euro Champ’ and 2 times World finalist. I want to thank all the Mugen Seiki Japan and Europe for their support. It’s not without sadness to leave this team who always did all the possible for me. However, I’m really motivated with new challenges and looking forward to the future…More to come… Actually, for personal reasons, “Moustache” and I decided not to follow our “driver-mechanic” relationship. Starting in 1993, my dad has always been on my side to support me and pit for me. I can’t be more thankful for everything he did for me. However, today, our geographical situation and our different goals forced us to stop working together. So I will continue racing on the highest scene on my side… The shark is ready to bite again…
