Cosworth has announced that its first batch of engines for the 2010 Formula 1 season is now ready for shipping from the company's headquarters in Northampton, England.
Cosworth will supply engines to five teams this season, as it returns to grand prix racing following its absence from the sport since 2006. Williams, Campos, Lotus, US F1 and Virgin are set to use the engines until the 2012 season.
"The first batch of CA2010 units is boxed and ready for our customers to press ahead with installation, fire up and initial testing," said Mark Gallagher, Cosworth's general manager. "We're looking forward to seeing them all on track next month since there is still a lot of work to do before the season starts.
"After the very busy summer and autumn months when we were putting our program together, it has been very rewarding to see the first engines ready for action thanks to the hard work of everyone here at Cosworth and our suppliers."
