Lotus will continue to expand its involvement in motorsport through providing technical and engineering support to a team in the F1-feeder series, GP2.
Lotus Motorsport has announced it will be collaborating with ART Grand Prix during the 2011 GP2 (Europe and Asia series) and GP3 series.
Lotus ART will field two cars in the GP2 Europe and GP2 Asia series and three cars in the GP3 Europe series.
It comes after news that the Lotus F1 team will be allowed to revive the Team Lotus name for 2011, tying it officially with the team that won seven F1 Constructers Championships and six F1 Driver Championships between 1963 and 1978.
Gino Rosato, director of corporate communications at Lotus said: "Lotus is proud to be partnering ART Grand Prix and in doing so uniting with the most successful and recognised team in GP2 Series. We come together with a common goal: to continue our great success in motorsport."
Frédéric Vasseur, team manager of ART Grand Prix said: "It is a fantastic opportunity for ART Grand Prix to be working with Lotus. The goal is clear: winning together the future GP2 and GP3 championships."
ART Grand Prix won the 2006 GP2 title with Lewis Hamilton.
