Lotus Engineering and just-auto Continue to be ‘proActive’

May 24, 2012

BROMSGROVE, England, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Issue 44 of Lotus Engineering’s quarterly automotive industry e-magazine, proActive,
is now available online.

The e-magazine, produced by Lotus Engineering in partnership with leading automotive
industry news and research website just-auto.com [http://bit.ly/Lskf27 ], contains
exclusive interviews with leading industry figures, updates on new technologies and a
digest of selected industry news.

It is free to access and subscribe to.

In the latest issue just-auto editor Dave Leggett interviews Lotus F1 Team Technical
Director James Allison and Lord Drayson of Drayson Racing Technologies.

Also, Richard Pearson, Jamie Turner and Peter Edwards of Lotus Engineering discuss the
transition towards sustainable energy supply for all sectors. And Jason Buckley takes a
look at what is standing in the way of true global vehicle production and whether modern
manufacturers will ever achieve the same commonality as was seen in Ford’s famous Model T.

“For this issue, the interviews yielded particularly interesting insights into
motorsport from two key figures in the sector,” said just-auto editor Dave Leggett. “Lord
Drayson is right at the heart of a new FIA electric car racing series (‘Formula E’), while
James Allison was able to give us a real flavour of how things work on the technical side
in a leading F1 Team.”

Lotus Engineering has been working with just-auto on the proActive e-magazine since
2004. “It continues to be a great partnership,” said Gary Haddon, Lotus Engineering’s Head
of Marketing. “The two teams have worked together very successfully to produce an
e-magazine which has grown in stature with a blend of inputs from just-auto’s highly
respected editorial team and our own hugely knowledgeable engineers. proActive serves as
an ideal platform for keeping the whole industry informed about fast-moving technological
change in the automotive business and the Lotus perspective. It’s also a good read.”
