Lotus Renault GP has revealed that it will launch its livery for the 2011 F1 season during the annual Autosport International Show at Birmingham's NEC next week.

The livery, which is expected to be black and gold in homage to the famous JPS colours of years gone by, will be shown on the Lotus Cars stand where the car will feature alongside the new Lotus T125 track day car, Lotus' IndyCar machine and the Evora GT4.

The full-blown 2011 car, which will be driven by Robert Kubica and Vitaly Petrov, will be officially launched at the end of the month just before pre-season testing gets underway in Valencia.

The Lotus Renault GP team has been formed after Group Lotus bought into the Renault team in a deal which includes title sponsorship through until 2017.
