Lotus T125 Personal Formula 1 Car

Unf. Want. Bad.

Motorsport is one thing, Motorsport heritage is another. Ferrari, McLaren, Lotus, Alfa-Romeo, Porsche all have it, HRT, Virgin Racing, Sauber and other teams have no history worth noting.  So when Group Lotus announce that they are going to take the title sponsorship of the Renault F1 team, no one got excited as it was nothing more than a branding exercise.

Then those boffins from turkey-land in Norfolk banged out the client experience single seater for rich folk to go racing in. The T125 is an in-house developed racing machine. However it falls short on many levels.

  1. They have the opportunity to make it a single spec racing series - which they haven’t
  2. They could have got over the squabble with Team Lotus and produced a single brand F1 team instead of having a wobble
  3. They could have gone solo and never given the original license to team Lotus
  4. They could have launched in Indycar in their own right rather than letting out the brand

They could have done so much, but the T125 still looks an amazing plaything.

GP2-level single-seater series set for 2017 debut in Great Britain
Chadwick Motorsport has announced the introduction of Formula UK, a new single-seater championship that will make its debut in 2017.

Chadwick Motorsport has announced the introduction of Formula UK, a new single-seater championship that will make its debut in 2017.

Formula UK will race with Rodin RZed chassis, which is based on the Lotus T125, a Formula 1-inspired car intended for private racing leagues.

The organisers claim that Formula UK cars will produce more downforce than the Dallara GP2/11, which is currently used by GP2.

Powering the Formula UK cars will be a new 4.0-litre, V10 engine that churns out 640 horsepower.

The inaugural season will kick off on December 3rd next year with the seventh and final round taking place on March 4th in 2018.

A round is set to consist of a qualifying, two sprint races and a 50-minute feature race, all held on the same day.

The car/engine package, combined with related equipment, will be available at a cost of £300,000.
