Renault have joined a growing list of teams set to reveal their 2011 car ahead of the year’s first pre-season test. The wraps will come off the R31 in Valencia on January 31, the day before testing gets underway at the Spanish circuit.

The new Renault will feature a black and gold livery following the team’s recent tie-up with Group Lotus, now the Enstone squad’s title sponsor. The car will be driven by the unchanged driver line-up of Poland’s Robert Kubica and Russia’s Vitaly Petrov.

Sauber, Toro Rosso and Ferrari have all confirmed they will launch their 2011 cars before the Valencia session, which runs from February 1-3 with all 12 teams expected to participate.
