Here is some history behind the Lotus racing suits:

Lotus Indy Car 2011 Series

KVRT Indy car, Honda is the series sponsor and KV Racing Technology was just promoting the Cosworth brand which they are part owners of the company. James Rossiter was supposed to be the driver of this car and backed out when he couldn’t raise the promised sponsorship money. Hense the reason the fire suits were all unused by the crew. The photo below was of the car before it was repainted for a new driver.

Founded in January 2003 originally as PK Racing, then PKV Racing from 2004 through 2007, the team was renamed KV Racing Technology when it joined the IndyCar Series in 2008 adding Lotus in 2011. KV Racing Technology – Lotus, which is based in Indianapolis, will be competing for the fourth year in the IZOD IndyCar Series.

KV Racing Technology - Lotus is owned by successful venture capitalist Kevin Kalkhoven and 1996 CART Indy Car World Series Champion Jimmy Vasser. Vasser, who drove his last open-wheel race in 2008, is now deeply involved in team operations and mentors the team's drivers. Veteran motorsports executive Mark Johnson is the team's general manager and handles the day-to-day operations.

Lotus Indy Car #59

Lotus Motorsport will expand its IndyCar partnership with KV Racing in 2011 and has confirmed that it will design bodywork for the new-for-2012 next generation IndyCar Series rules.

The company, which in its original incarnation won the 1965 Indianapolis 500, returned to American motorsport in a sponsorship and technical support deal with KV this season. The tie-up saw Takuma Sato running a classic green Lotus livery on his Dallara IndyCar for his rookie season.

Lotus says it will stick with KV through 2011, and that next year it will back at least two of the team's cars.

"The 2011 IndyCar season will see Lotus continue to work with KV Racing Technology providing further technical and engineering support, fielding a minimum of two cars on the grid," said a Lotus statement.

KV currently enters three cars full-time, with Mario Moraes and EJ Viso running alongside Sato but under different sponsorship.

Under the 2012 IndyCar regulations, constructors are being invited to design bodywork packages to run on a Dallara-designed central cell. Lotus Motorsport boss Claudio Berro told AUTOSPORT in July that the firm was set to get involved under the new rules - saying "we plan to do our own bodykit.

It is a natural evolution of our involvement in the IndyCar Series" - and Lotus confirmed today that it will "commence development on new body work and chassis - in line with the new regulation scheduled for implementation in 2012.

Alex Job Racing - Lotus 2012 (Suit is SOLD)

Lotus and Alex Job Racing joined forces to compete in the American Le Mans Series' GT class. The team will be known as Lotus Alex Job Racing, with factory backing from Lotus. The partnership marks the first time Lotus has participated in factory form in the ALMS. Lotus AJR will run the 2012 Lotus Evora GTE but will skip the season-opening 12 Hours of Sebring on March 17 in favor of a debut on April 14 at the Toyota Long Beach Grand Prix. Team boss Alex Job confirmed that part-time Izod IndyCar Series racer Townsend Bell will drive the team's one-car effort, teaming up with AJR driver Bill Sweedler. “I am excited to announce the racing partnership between Lotus and Alex Job Racing in North America,” Job said. “Our efforts and ability to attract Lotus is a testament to the hard work that AJR has put in over the past several years. This partnership, along with our key sponsors William Rast, Battery Tender and Yokohama represent a new chapter for our seasoned organization and for the ALMS.“Bill Sweedler, Townsend Bell and Colin Dyne [William Rast CEO] played the key role in forging this long-term relationship with Lotus. We collectively look forward to representing this iconic sports-car brand for years to come in GT racing.”The Evora GTE is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 Toyota engine featuring Cosworth electronic controls, with redline set at 7,000 rpm. The engine produces 470 hp and 328-lb-ft of torque. The racing version of the car weighs 2,740 pounds, and it has a six-speed sequential Xtrac gearbox with a paddle-shift option.

Guys suck it up and buy these so I do not buy more!!!
I bought the Alex Job one and it is awesome!!!
Such a deal to get a rare, proper suit.
I have access to lots of nascar suits and they are so much more boring than an original Lotus suit!!!
Thanks Glenn!!

It would be very helpful to know more about the size besides "large".

As one San to another I think San makes sense (both of them).

This suit is for sale again. The size is XXL. The tag inside that shows 42 is the suit makers number, not size. So, if your a big boy or just want some Lotus history to hang in your garage, here is your chance. Priced at $350 including postage within the U.S. PayPal only.
