Kodewa to develop new Lotus LMP2 machine

Kodewa to develop a new Lotus-branded LMP2 car for the 2013 season
Colin Kolles' Kodewa outfit has announced that it will develop and build its own Lotus LMP2 car for the 2013 season.

The team, which is running a Lotus-branded Lola Coupe this season, is set to work on the LMP2 machine before turning its focus towards a machine that would be able to compete in LMP1.

Kodewa is promising full support to any customer teams who wish to run the car – described as 'a state of the art car in terms of aerodynamics and monocoque design, employing the latest designs and technologies' - next season.

The technical team will be headed by former Force India and Sauber F1 man James Key, while the design work is being undertaken by Los Angeles-based designer Daniel Simon.

Development of the new car is very well advanced with the latest CFD applications and with tests in the wind tunnel with the first shakedown planned when the current World Endurance Championship season draws to a close.
