proceedings as the identity of F1 team, known as Lotus Racing, moved further to the court on Thursday.
The Group Lotus is all set to enter F1 along with the Enstone based Renault team in 2011, and also they have announced to supply engines and bodywork for the Indycar series cars from 2012. All this as the team want to compete with the big buys.
