Auto GP to introduce all-new car to replace Lola-Zytek in 2013
Auto GP will introduce an all-new car next year to replace the Lola-Zytek that has been used since the series' inception in 2010
No details have been released as to the identity of the builder of the new car, or which engine it will use. The Lola B05/52-Zytek has been in operation since 2005; initially as the spec car for A1GP, and then in Auto GP.
Series boss Enzo Coloni said that the new car would be a major departure from the Lola in order to bring the series into line with other top level sub-Formula 1 championships.
"We're happy with the performance of our car," Coloni said. "But at the same time we feel that after three seasons with the current design, something needs to be done in order to bring our championship even closer to the standards boasted by the top step of the motorsport ladder.
"In order to do that, you have to go for a major change, and that's what we'll do. It's too early to go into the details, but you can expect an official announcement pretty soon."
