After the strong performance in Brazil, Lotus is coming to Bahrain with high hopes. The target for the adventure in the desert will be another two car finish, eventually a position on the podium is possible. It is going to be a special race as it starts in daylight and finishes at night.

The driver’s line up remains unchanged. Thomas Holzer, Mirco Schultis and Luca Moro will be at the wheel of Lotus LMP2 car #31. Kevin Weeda will drive alongside James Rossiter and Vitantonio Liuzzi in car #32.

The race starts on Saturday, 29th September 2012, at 16:00 hours local time.

Mirco Schultis, Race Driver #31:
“I am looking forward to racing in Bahrain and I was already racing at this circuit when it was opened in 2004. We had a good race at the round in Sao Paulo and I felt more comfortable in the car. We could set steady lap times and improve continuously. It will be special atmosphere in Bahrain when the sun sets during the race. I hope that we can have another good weekend and I am looking forward to driving in the desert.”

James Rossiter, Race Driver #32:
“We are coming to Bahrain with a positive feeling. In Brazil, we showed a strong race performance and could prove that we can fight for the podium. Racing in the desert will be special: the race starts in the afternoon and finishes at night. I am looking forward to it and I hope that we can show another good performance. We have the pace and our aim is to finish on the podium.”
