Follow Lotus Sport Official on Instagram – a new social space for Lotus
Did you catch the Extreme E racing last weekend? Greenland’s first ever motorsport event saw the all-electric off-road SUVs battle it out under the stunning backdrop of the Russell Glacier, and it was the best action of the season so far.
Tight turns, long straights, dramatic drop-offs and the suspension-battering Rock Garden provided some fantastic bumper-to-bumper races, and the great news was that Jenson Button’s JBXE team – to which Lotus Engineering is technical partner – finished the Arctic X-Prix weekend in second place overall. It means they’re up to fourth out of the nine teams taking part and will be pushing for the podium at the next event, the Island X-Prix in Sardinia on 23-24 October.
Extreme E is the first chapter in an all-new motorsport programme from Lotus and there will be more news on that very soon. The best place to keep up with the latest developments is our all-new ‘Lotus Sport Official’ social channel on Instagram.
While we will be posting news and amazing images from Extreme E – as well as an exciting new announcement coming later this month – the content will cover other sports where Lotus is involved. There’s already posts about the golden success of the Olympic track bike in Tokyo, our role as principal partner of the Premier League’s Norwich City Football Club and Jenson Button’s lap of Laguna Seca racetrack in the recently launched Lotus Emira sports car. Speaking of Jenson, there’s also details of our collaboration with Léger, the cycling brand which he part-owns and the range of bikes that are in the pipeline.
As the transformation of Lotus from a UK sports car company to a truly global performance car brand continues, we will always strive to showcase and test our ‘pioneering maverick’ approach in the world’s most demanding competitive arenas.
Lotus Sport Official on Instagram is somewhere to engage new followers and fans as we expand that portfolio of sporting achievement, and somewhere to explain our advanced technology story through our valued partnerships and the varied and pioneering work of Lotus Engineering. Join us on the journey here.
