  1. Innovative new bike meticulously designed and engineered to deliver outstanding track performance Lotus Engineering has created the unique front forks and handlebars, with Hope Technology developing the frame Will be on show in London from Thursday, and makes competitive track debut with the Great Britain Cycling Team at the weekend (Hethel, UK – 30 October 2019) – Lotus Engineering and Hope Technology have unveiled their exciting bicycle collaboration – an innovative new track bike designed to deliver medals for the Great Britain Cycling Team at next summer’s Olympic Games. The new bike will be on public display later this week at London’s Rouleur Classic event and make its competitive debut with the Great Britain Cycling Team this weekend. Riders have been testing the bike in secret over the past weeks, and will continue their evaluation with a view to riding it at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Lotus Engineering is the internationally recognised automotive consultancy division of Group Lotus, best known globally for its iconic British performance cars. Its industrial design innovation and expertise has been seen in sectors including aerospace, medical research, furniture and boat-building. Lotus Engineering has created the unique front fork design and handlebars for the new bike, working with Hope Technology to integrate these components into the overall package. This has included a full programme of wind tunnel evaluation on both bike and rider, plus testing to maximise the strength while minimising the weight. Lotus has also worked on improving stiffness and front end feel to improve rider confidence. Lotus has a highly successful history in cycling through its Lotus Engineering division. In the Nineties, Lotus was instrumental in the design and development of Lotus Sport bikes for cycling legend Chris Boardman at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, where he won gold, and in the 1994 Tour de France, where he won the prologue time trial to take the famous yellow jersey. Miguel Fragoso, Executive Director, Lotus Engineering, commented: “Lotus has always been at the very cutting edge of lightweight racing performance with its cars, and now – after 25 years away from cycling – we’ve collaborated to apply the same Lotus core values to this new track bike. We look forward to working with British Cycling as testing continues towards next summer’s Olympics.” Hope Technology has been designing, creating, manufacturing and testing innovative components for bikes at its Lancashire HQ for 30 years. Countless British bikes and riders have benefitted from Hope products and today the business exports around half of its output. After years of success in racing, it has recently moved into making complete, ready-to-ride bikes. Ian Weatherill, Managing Director, Hope Technology, said: “We have created the frame using high-modulus composites with fabric woven in UK, the in-house team has unrivalled engineering expertise with 30 years of composite experience and two Olympics behind them. Together we have refined the manufacturing method to make a superior product”. A large proportion of the development of the bike’s aero features were done following the 2016 Olympics, when the UCI – cycling’s governing body – changed the rules on bike development. At that point a knowledge transfer was made by the English Institute of Sport (EIS) to key UK suppliers, in this case Hope Technology and Lotus Engineering. The pair have worked closely together to refine the design and perfect the manufacturing processes of the new bike. Tony Purnell, head of technology for the Great Britain Cycling Team, said: “It’s a dream team of engineering prowess – Hope Technology bring high quality manufacturing standards and Lotus Engineering is renowned for lightweight design and outstanding aerodynamic efficiency. Both have been supported and advised by additive manufacturing experts Renishaw, who have ensured that Lotus and Hope have access to the most modern and fastest turnaround process from design to usable pieces. To qualify to be ridden at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the bike’s design must be approved by the UCI and it must be ridden during the 2019/2020 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup series by the Great Britain Cycling Team before the end of 2019. This means the bike will be ridden by British Cycling athletes at the Minsk-Arena velodrome in Belarus this weekend (1-3 November). UK cycling fans will be able to see it in action on home ground for the first time at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Glasgow, the following weekend (8-10 November). Tony Purnell added: “Following a terrific effort from our sponsors to bring this bike into reality, we have the task of evaluating the bike together with the English Institute of Sport to ensure it’s going to have the right performance in Minsk and Glasgow, and of course in Tokyo, and providing feedback to Hope and Lotus engineering teams.” The new bike will also appear at the Rouleur Classic event in London this weekend (31 October - 2 November). It will be displayed on the Hope Technology stand for the duration of the event.

  3. Award given to Lotus for having “revolutionised and disrupted its sector” during the last year Ongoing enhancements to the brand, including new corporate identity and ‘For the Drivers’ tagline, singled out for praise Lotus CEO Phil Popham paid tribute to employees working tirelessly to take the brand to new levels of success (Hethel, UK – 29 October 2019) – Lotus has won the prestigious ‘Luxury Brand of the Year’ award at the annual Luxury Briefing Awards 2019. The car maker was honoured at a gala ceremony staged at The Savoy, London in front of more than 350 VIP guests. Founded in 1996, Luxury Briefing provides industry reports, analysis and expert opinion across all sectors of the luxury industry. ‘Luxury Brand of the Year’ is one of the top awards and chosen by the organisation’s board of directors. In selecting Lotus, Sir Eric Peacock, Chairman of Luxury Briefing, said Lotus has “revolutionised and disrupted its sector by blowing away all boundaries and limitations with an energetic burst of innovation and repositioning”. Praise was given for ongoing enhancements to the Lotus brand, which to date have included a new corporate identity, new ‘For the Drivers’ brand tag line, and a complete overhaul of its digital presence. Sir Eric acknowledged Lotus’ commitment to top-level motorsport through the Evora GT4 Concept, the Premier League football partnership with Norwich City, and a collaboration on elite cycling performance through the expanding Lotus Engineering consultancy. However, what excited the Luxury Briefing team most was the launch of the all-electric Lotus Evija hypercar. Sir Eric called it “a game-changer of a new car” which had raised the brand’s global profile massively. It marks the start of an ambitious and exciting new product plan that will grow the brand over the next decade. Phil Popham, CEO, Lotus cars, collected the award and commented: “We are a performance car company with bold ambitions for the future, so to be recognised and honoured as a luxury brand at this stage of our journey is a fantastic achievement. This award is for everyone in the Lotus family around the world who is working tirelessly to grow our brand and achieve new levels of success. I’m confident it will the first of many from outside the automotive sector.” Other brands recognised at the awards include Princess Yachts, Hennessey XO, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Timothy Oulton, Creed Boutique, Aston Martin and Bentley.

  6. New joint venture champions a commitment to push the boundaries of what’s possible on two wheels Collaborative programme of research and development, data analysis and knowledge-sharing Topics will include lightweight engineering, aerodynamics and advanced material manufacturing (Hethel, UK – 22 October 2019) – Internationally recognised automotive consultancy Lotus Engineering and world-leading bicycle component manufacturer Hope Technology have announced an exciting new partnership. The joint venture has been established to explore new ways to push the boundaries of bicycle design and technology. At its heart will be a collaborative programme of research and development, data analysis and knowledge-sharing, covering topics such as lightweight engineering, aerodynamics and advanced material manufacturing. Lotus Engineering is the internationally recognised automotive consultancy division of Group Lotus, best known globally for its iconic British performance cars. The current range – the Elise, Exige and Evora – are the spiritual successors to legendary Lotus models such as the Esprit, Elan and Elite, still much-loved around the world. Earlier this year Lotus revealed the Evija, an all-electric two-seater that will go on sale next year. With a target figure of 2,000 PS, it will be the world’s most powerful series production road car ever. Other new Lotus models will follow. Group Lotus is based in Hethel, Norfolk, where it employs more than 1,000 people. The innovative engineering approach and problem-solving expertise of Lotus Engineering consultancy has covered sectors ranging from aerospace and medical research to furniture, boat-building and many other aspects of industrial design. While Lotus is best known as a car company, it has a proud and highly successful history in cycling through its Lotus Engineering division. In the Nineties, Lotus was instrumental in the design and development of bikes for cycling legend Chris Boardman at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, where he won gold, and in the 1994 Tour de France, where he won the prologue time trial to the famous yellow jersey. The Lotus Sport bike – instantly recognisable for its aerodynamic design – remains to this day an iconic symbol of outstanding British sporting success. Hope Technology is a well-established and highly regarded British brand that’s fully ensconced within the cycling industry and has always built its business and its reputation on making top-quality products. It has been designing, creating, manufacturing and testing innovative components for bikes at its Lancashire HQ for 30 years. Countless British bikes and riders have benefitted from Hope products and today the business exports around half of its output. After years of success in racing, it has recently moved into making complete, ready-to-ride bikes. Phil Popham, CEO, Group Lotus, said: “Lotus is thrilled to be back in cycling for the first time in 25 years. Innovation and ingenuity have always been part of the Lotus DNA, and working in collaboration with Hope is a fantastic illustration of how the Lotus Engineering consultancy can support projects outside of the automotive sector.” Ian Weatherill, Managing Director, Hope Technology, said: “When we started making innovative, highly-spec’ed disc brakes, back in the late Eighties, we didn’t imagine that Hope Technology would evolve into what it is today – a company with more than 150 employees hand-crafting components for both mountain and road bikes, 24-7. We are proud to have stuck rigidly to our philosophy, relentlessly pursuing only the best possible products. To be partnering with Lotus is certainly a great place to find ourselves in 2019, and it’s an exciting time for us all.” To find out more about Lotus Engineering visit www.lotuscars.com/engineering To find out more about HOPE visit www.hopetech.com

  9. The car is really a showcase to get the Lotus name out there and on the front covers of magazines IMHO, it showcases what they can do, people who can afford it probably wont even drive it much but just add it to their garage collection.
  10. (Nürburgring, Germany – 16 September 2019) – Belgian racer Peter Verlinde claimed his first Lotus Cup Europe victory when the FIA International Series visited Germany’s Nürburgring last weekend, defeating reigning champion Bence Balogh in the process. However, the Hungarian won the opening race of the weekend, and closed the gap to title leader Franck Laroche to just three points with one event of the season remaining. Appearing on the DTM bill for the third and final time this season, and in front of the German touring car series’ huge home crowd, Balogh was headed by 2016 champion Tamas Vizin for an all-Hungarian front row. Just 0.3 seconds covered the top four in an ultra-close qualifying session, in which Verlinde and Frenchman Xavier Georges shared the second row. A superb getaway by Balogh propelled his Evora into a lead that he would not relinquish, whilst the Exige of poleman Vizin came under increasing pressure from Verlinde in the AM Ring Evora GT4. The Belgian passed for second place on lap six, leaving his rival to fend off Georges. The Exiges swapped places, but Vizin reclaimed his place on the podium as Georges fell back to seventh place behind Britain’s Jason McInulty, Belgium’s Thierry Verhiest and France’s Laroche, who claimed the 2-Eleven class win in the process. Laroche’s title ambitions looked to be slipping after qualifying a lowly 11th, behind class rivals and compatriots Anthony Fournier and Philippe Loup. However, a gritty performance in the race saw him fight back to claim the place from erstwhile leader Loup. In the second race, Balogh repeated his earlier start to assume the lead over Vizin. But he succumbed to a stunning move from Verlinde, who took the lead and held on for thrilling victory, despite his rival’s best efforts. There was nothing between the Belgian and Hungarian Evoras and with the Production car battle to lap in the final moments, Verlinde gained a small advantage that he held to the line to defeat Balogh by just half a second. The Hungarian did, however, secure the V6 Cup class title ahead of the final rounds later this month. Vizin lost further places in this race, promoting McInulty to the podium and eventually finishing behind Georges. Verhiest took sixth place at the chequered flag. Title leader Laroche was unable to capitalise on Balogh losing out on the win, as Fournier took the class victory in seventh place overall, whilst Britain’s Ian Fenwick claimed second in class. Third for Laroche, ahead of series newcomer Ryan Savage from Britain, reduced his title lead to just three points with one event remaining, although, like rival Balogh he secured his class championship. With just a class championship to fight for, the Production runners staged two entertaining races, with Britain’s Mark Yates prevailing in both contests. In the opener, Yates passed early leader, Sweden’s Cai Cederholm to take a dominant win, with Britain’s Dan Plant completing the podium. Later on the Briton defeated Genoud-Prachex and Sweden’s Sven Pettersson, the latter now likely to relinquish his class title having suffered mechanical issues in the first race. With three rounds of the Lotus Cup Europe season remaining, the title is set to go right down to the wire at Le Mans on 29-30 September.
