Today, The Star (Malaysia) reports that LotusF1 are progressing well with their centre of excellence in SepangF1.
Lotus facility in Sepang to include wind tunnel
KUALA LUMPUR: The Lotus Racing team are looking at developing a state-of-the-art technology, research and development centre based in Malaysia. The site will be at the Sepang International Circuit.
The facility will include a top class F1 wind tunnel, backed by a world class computational fluids dynamics (CFD) which incorporates vehicle dynamics and production facilities.
“We are already moving towards getting this project off the ground and we are hopeful that it could be completed by this year,” said Tony.(Fernandes).
I thought I would add my Bernama interview.
This weekend I met a 'Sensei' who's son is training to be a racing driver. He has contacts in Singapore motorsport. He has taken my contact info. Hopefully that will lead somewhere.
The Sensai has trained with Mohamed Ali, Joe Frazier,Larry Holmes, and Sugar Ray Leonard among others.
He is very good even at 75 years of age! The resident dojo sensai video'd him teaching. If it makes youtube, I'll embed it on the blog.
In the meantime this a Star newspaper video. It shows the sensai, Winston, and his son Fei Hoong (Future World Champion).
Anyway, good luck to Tony Fernandes, and his team. I am sure that Group Lotus are very comfortable in Bukit Jalil...
Private investors and Singapore may be the way to go.
