The Lotus Cup developing fast in the USA too!

The Lotus Cup developing fast in the USA too!

After the Lotus Cup UK (since 2009) and the Lotus Cup Europe (since 2010), Motul is now the lubricant partner for the Lotus Cup USA.

Fifteen or so drivers participated last weekend at the second round of the season in Arizona at the Firebird track. On this highly specific track – above all a dragster track consisting in an approved ¼ mile straight section – the drivers had to be most skilful to control their 2-Elevens, Exiges or Elises on a track made slippery both by the many traces of burnt rubber (typical of dragster races) and Saturday's heavy rainfall.

It should be noted that most of the contenders chose to participate in the two events set in place by the organiser for the weekend: the time-attack, in which drivers are alone against the stopwatch for 2 laps, and the main race with its flying start in a pack.

As at the European races, the 2-Elevens played the lead roles at the hands of Andy Kern (1st) and Jack Fried (3rd), Glen Irani taking second position at the wheel of his Exige.
