We would like to give you the chance to win a unique open-topped sports car that has had one careful owner - Damon Hill. Damon, hotly tipped to take this year's Grand Prix crown from Michael Schumacher, will road test our prize Renault Sport Spider, a magnificent mid-engine two seater that was the hit of the Geneva Motor Show.

The Spider, which will retail for around pounds 25,000, has a lightweight aluminium chassis and a 150 bhp 2 litre Clio Williams engine which gives a top speed of 130 mph.

Though the Spider's high-tech interior and racy, squat lines show its race track pedigree, this is a car that was designed for everyday use. Safety is a prime feature, as is driver comfort and noise reduction.

Acceleration, road-holding, cornering and breaking are all that you would expect from a designer thoroughbred. Production of the Spider will be strictly limited, and your prize car will carry the Damon Hill seal of approval.
