Sato, Viso Return To KVRT - Lotus

Nearly a year after signing with KV Racing Technology for the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series, Takuma Sato and E.J. re-signed with the team today.  As part of the announcement Lotus will provide primary sponsorship duties for both Dallara's, branding the entries 'KV Racing Technology - Lotus'.

 “For us last year was all about learning, this year we would really like to achieve some podium finishes – we want to start to contest with some of the front runners," said Lotus Director of Motorsport Claudio Berro. “What we’re doing with IndyCar is very similar to the way we tackle all our race involvement, first we test the water with an established team, we then explore ways in which to expand our involvement – increasing our commitment to KVRT is one such step as is our intention to supply engine and aero body kits from 2012 onwards.”

Sato struggled in his rookie season, finishing 21st in the points standings, but will return for his sophmore year running the #5 KV Racing Technology – Lotus Honda/Dallara/Firestone.

Viso's 4th year in IZOD IndyCar Series competion will find him piloting the #8 PDVSA – KV Racing Technology – Lotus Honda/Dallara/Firestone car supported by PDVSA, Herbalife, CANTV, SBA Airlines and team partner Plantronics.

  1. Well i wounder how many cars they will crash this year? Look 4 improvement from Sato but Viso couldnt drive a shopping cart. Rather see Milka driving than Viso at least she doesnt wreck all time. They both take out other drivers. KVRT has a really nice staff but the drivers suck. I do not understand this, are the cars and parts free 4 KVRT? Cause this is going to get costly. Cant see Kevin putting up with another crash fest this year. But Jimmy love it or so he says. :(
