Apr 9, 2010

Takuma will RUSHMORE for Indy victory!

Lotus is back in IndyCar racing and is reviving its pioneer spirit, reminding everybody that Colin Chapman and Lotus revolutionized IndyCar Racing with the pioneering 1965 Lotus Type 38. It was the racecar that changed the face of Indy forever when Jim Clark was the first driver to win the Indy 500 with a rear-engined car - no front-engined car has won the race since.

They obviously feel it was a momentous event, and have decided to add Chapman and 2010 Lotus Indy driver Takuma Sato to Mount Rushmore, alongside revolutionaries, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

At the third round of the 2010 IZOD Indy Racing Series in Alabama, Takuma Sato is aiming for a racing "revolution" of his own.

The Indy Grand Prix of Alabama takes place this weekend at Barber Motorsports Park and the #5 Lotus IndyCar is in the iconic Lotus green and yellow once more.

Claudio Berro, Director of Motorsport for Lotus said: "I am really looking forward to this weekend. The Lotus mechanics together with the KV Racing team have been working hard on getting the perfect set-up for Taku. Barber Motorsports Park feels like a home from home as the resort houses the largest collection of classic Lotus cars anywhere in the world. So I would like to think we have a small psychological advantage over our competitors."

Takuma Sato, ready to show his true colors, is looking forward to the race: "The track is a lot more like an F1 circuit, which is what I am used to. I enjoy the street races, but they can be harder to get into a rhythm, so I am really looking forward to pushing myself and the car hard, making up for the issues we had at the last race at St Petersburg, and making Lotus proud."
