Presentation of the new Lotus T128 on the circuit Paul Ricard
On March 29th, the new Lotus T128 LMP2 endurance car will be unveiled on the circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet.
The car is the result of the cooperation between Lotus, Kodewa and Advanced Design and Engineering Systems Solutions AG (ADESS AG), which were entrusted with the development of the T128.
"We are very proud to finally see the result of our development work on the track." Stéphane Chosse, founder and CEO of ADESS AG, says.
"During the last 12 months, ADESS AG engineering team has been working on the development of the T128. Long years of experience in F1 and endurance racing series have helped the team consequently in designing what is expected to be a serious LMP2 contender.
The aerodynamic development of the car started with an intensive CFD programme (CFD = Computational Fluid Dynamics), and was then, thanks to our partner company SCE Solutions, completed with thorough wind tunnel tests . As the aero package was taking shape, the full-scale design has been carried out.
Particular strengths are to be expected in the field of safety and in the handling of the car, which should make it very competitive.
Together with the Team of Kodewa we are optimistic and very glad to see the T128 first time on track in Silverstone."
