Last week the rumors of the Lotus/Cosworth/KV Racing Technology arrangement became fact, although it's still unclear what exactly the whole deal means. It might mean Lotus will one day again create an IndyCar chassis, or that Cosworth will soon return with an IRL-approved engine.

It definitely means KVRT will have SMOKIN' HOT historically-themed liveries like this.

The classic Racing Green and Yellow livery used on Lotus Racing cars in the 1950s and ‘60s returns to North America, with its debut on the No. 5 KV Racing Technology car in the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 28.

Lotus and Cosworth have entered into a technical and commercial partnership with the IZOD IndyCar Series team. The car will be driven by former Formula One driver Takuma Sato.

“This is fantastic news for everyone,” said Sato, who made his IZOD IndyCar Series debut on the streets of Sao Paulo, Brazil, on March 14. “It is exciting for me to be a Lotus driver and I’m really looking forward to great success with this new project.”
