Lotus Release Two Teams From Indycar Contracts

While Lotus have had a good weekend in F1, GP2 and Britcar, it seems things are a little less rosy over in the US

Lotus looks set to release the Dreyer & Reinbold – which runs Oriol Servia – and Bryan Herta Autosport – with driver Alex Tagliani – from contract over disputes regarding engine supply and performance, culminating in the decision not to supply engines for the Indianapolis test ahead of this years Indy 500.

The move will leave only 3 cars running the Judd developed V6 for the rest of the 2012 season, although a 4th car run by Newman/Haas Racing is set to compete in the Indy 500, driven by Jean Alesi.
