With no aero kit manufacturers other than Dallara announced on July 14, 2010, worried speculation was that the IZOD IndyCar Series would remain a spec series. Thanfully, Lotus ended some of those worries today.
The auto manufacturer, who has sought a larger role in auto racing in the last year, financially backing the No. 5 car of Takuma Sato and giving KV Racing technical help, announced that Lotus would be designing an aero kit for the 2012 IndyCar chassis.
That's it for now as far as details go, but it's excellent news for the series.
