Lotus will develop an aerodynamic package for the next-generation Dallara Indycar in 2012, this week's AUTOSPORT magazine confirms.
The historic British brand, which won the Indianapolis 500 in 1965, is already giving the KV Racing Technology team financial backing and technical assistance for this year's IndyCar Series.
It now plans to take advantage of the rule that allows teams to develop their own aerodynamic for the new Dallara one-make Indycar that will come on stream in 2012.
Lotus Cars motorsport director Claudio Berro said: "We plan to do our own bodykit. It is a natural evolution of our involvement in the IndyCar Series."
