Global Lotus Cup Schedule Announced - Web Exclusive

Previously operated from several countries in Europe and Japan, the Lotus Cup has now expanded considerably to include the USA, UK and Eastern Europe.

Feb 2, 2011

Over many years, the Lotus Cup Race Series has developed into one of the most successful series in the world, often with capacity grids of Elise, Exige, 2-Eleven and Europa racecars jostling for position.

Previously operated from several countries in Europe and Japan, the Lotus Cup has now expanded considerably to include the USA, UK and Eastern Europe.

Not only has the Lotus Cup grown in size, the organization of the series has been consolidated. For the first time, drivers will now race to one set of rules, regulations and formats in championships around the world including:

• Lotus Cup UK
• Lotus Cup Europe
• Lotus Cup Italy
• Lotus Cup USA (West Coast)
• Lotus Cup USA (East Coast)
• Lotus Cup Eastern Europe
• Lotus Cup Japan

Director of Lotus Motorsport Claudio Berro said: "Lotus sports car racing is one of the most popular forms of accessible motorsport in the world. Now is the time to bring these championships under the Lotus umbrella, to ensure a consistent look and feel to the competition."

Lotus will provide increased support and investment for these race series and will ensure the new Cup Championships retain the community feel and friendliness that an enthusiast-based series needs.

The Lotus Cup Championships will receive a new identity, logos, branding and website aligned closely to the new Lotus motorsport strategy and initiatives announced over the last few months.
