As others have already mentioned, I have looked in a motorsport history book that I have. Lotus Engineering was created in 1952 racing mostly in sports cars but then supported Vanwall in F1 in 1956/58. But by that time Team Lotus was seperated from the company in 1954. So as David Hunt said, TL were seperate from Lotus cars/Group and not the same.
