Lotus is looking to make a massive push in motorsports, announcing its return to the IndyCar series just as a new Lotus Formula One team hits the track in Bahrain for the start of the F1 season. Teaming up with long-time Lotus partner and world-renowned engine builder Cosworth, the Lotus Cosworth team will be run by KV Racing Technoloy (KVRT). Piloting the characteristically-Lotus green and yellow Lotus-Cosworth IndyCar will be Formula One veteran Takuma Sato.
Lotus recently announced a partnership with Cosworth that will not only see the engine builder develop the company’s 400-hp Evora Cup Car engine, but also develop engines for street cars.
Lotus-Cosworth racing will first take the track at the Sao Paolo Indy 300 in Brazil on March 14, 2010.
