Leo Parente and ShakeDown travel to the American Le Mans Series Mosport GP, before heading right to the Spa24 and more GT racing. The Lotus Evora GT of Alex Job Racing in the 2012 ALMS gets an up-close look and discussion. OMG, is this Lotus Racing program going well, just a paint job, or the Lotus Indy mess with fenders?
Good job Leo! You guys make race tech interesting. Anyone know what the spec are on the new 2012 engine they where discussing?
How is he suppose to win with minimal factory support!? Wtf lotus really
host was annoying as shit with his questions and unnecessary hand gestures.
Wish I knew Leo was there. Great race weekend and cars.
its too damn bad that my friend who is a viper fan can talk shit because they were fatser then lotus out the blocks, but its ok i have faith!
Probably got more to do with money – don't forget we are still in the middle of a recession, and the Lotus factory is already running multiple racing series
Good stuff guys.
Still waiting for lotus to get quick lol
why doesn't lotus race like the exige?
I dont get why AJR even went with Lotus. Can someone please enlighten me?
Honestly IMO they'd be better off running Astons or Corvettes. Heck maybe even a R8 LMS if they can get the support.
Stupid accent old man, shame on you.
They do man Im happy to see them back. I think they will get a win soon. But my ideal GT class would have everyone right there so anyone can win at anytime. First Lotus need to make a better car and engine combo lol
I want the new cars to get going so its not predictable who will win. But the new 991 GTE is sweet
Hit the nail on the head, last 2 seconds to be competitive is where all the really hard (read expensive) work starts. Every one of us that develops Lotus cars (for racing) knows that there is no "factory" support … we go it alone and hope Lotus Cars survives.
With support from Lotus in England I could see the Evora beating the pants off of the 911. But that will never happen cause Lotus isn't interested in expanding sales here in the USA. They are expanding into Asia
They developed a GT1 car based on the Exige – factory supported. They kept on bursting into flames….
But people don't buy f1 cars they buy road cars so there trying to make there normal cars look the best
in assetto corsa my best car:) fast ass hell and with great balance/stearing much better than porsche, ferrari, lambo. Great simulation for maniacs gt
Got to work on the sister car at uni, great piece of kit.
How many grams of cocaine did the presenter take before filming,?
if any at all.
Fun fact, this car is for sale right now for $289,000 https://racecarsdirect.com/Advert/Details/96326/2011-lotus-evora-gt2-gtlm
The most fascinating thing to me is that the track used to be called Mosport
I don’t know how I’ve been around racing for so long but I always feel so new
