The new incarnation of the Lotus team is to bring its 2010 Formula 1 car to the Classic Team Lotus Festival at Snetterton on June 20.
Drivers Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen, plus reserve Fairuz Fauzy, will all be at the Norfolk track for the event, which will feature an example of every single Lotus Formula 1 design that raced in the World Championship from 1957 to 1994. Team boss Tony Fernandes said he was thrilled that his squad would be participating.
"First, I want to say what a fantastic job Clive Chapman and everyone at Classic Team Lotus have done, not just with the upcoming event but also to keep so many dreams alive on tracks around the world," he said.
"The Festival is going to be a great event – very emotional for many of those attending, and a great way to celebrate the Lotus motorsport heritage. We are very honored to have been invited and I know the whole team is looking forward to seeing the UK fans, and spending a bit of time with the cars and people who helped create the Lotus legend.
"We're running one of our cars as well, so people can see how the story has come full circle – in the meantime, I'd urge every Lotus fan, and anyone who loves motorsport, to make sure they're at Snetterton on the 20th of June."
