This evening, the organizers are naturally very busy with the last-minute preparatives, making sure everything's ready for the big day.

In fact the whole place is buzzing with activity: people are putting down carpet, polishing windscreens, cleaning the tiles, etc. Everything has to be bright and shiny for when the photographers come in tomorrow.

The cars are getting the sort of attention more usually reserved for pre-shoot film stars in their dressing rooms. On stage, people are rehearsing the press conference, focused on Kadjar, Renault's new crossover, unveiled in January.
