The stunning Lotus Cosworth T127 by our very own Malaysian Team – Lotus Racing

Lotus Racing was officially born on September 12th 2009 when the FIA granted the new team its entry into the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship.
The brainchild of none other then our very own Dato Tony Fernandes, who together with fellow shareholders Kamarudin Meranun and SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin; lead a consortium of Malaysian business interests to join forces to provide initial funding for the team under the parent company 1Malaysia Racing Team.

While I have absolute ZERO interest in F1, the opposite can be said when it comes to the projects that  Tony Fernandes gets involved in. One can’t deny that he is a formidable businessman, and he is one of the few Malaysian businessmen I respect.

And where’s Tony is involved, things moves speedily, hence barely 5 months later, the Lotus Cosworth T127 was completed at its UK base in Hingham, Norfolk.

The very same machine was put to test in Bahrain, with both Lotus Racing cars; driven by Heikki Kovalainen &  Jarno Trulli finishing in 15thth & 17thth places respectively during the opening round of the 2010 Formula One™ World Championship.
Less than a month later, Heikki Kovalainen finished the Melbourne Grand Prix in 13th place.

All seemed to augur well for the Lotus Racing team. Confidence soared & the team looked forward to build on its strong start to the season at the third round of the 2010 Formula One™ World Championship, coincidentally Lotus Racing’s first race at home in Malaysia.

Kicking off the team’s week in Malaysia, Lotus Racing held a homecoming celebration at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur where all three drivers – Jarno Trulli, Heikki Kovalainen and Fairuz Fauzy – unveiled the stunning green-and-yellow Lotus Cosworth T127 for the first time to their Malaysian fans.

This was the first time that the Lotus Cosworth T127 cars are on Malaysian soil. And this is the real Lotus Cosworth T127 that will be racing in Sepang on 2-4 Apr 2010. (below: pic taken on the race day itself by Jason Ong)

As all of you would have known by now, Lotus Heikki Kovalainen finished 17th place in the Sepang race. Most fans were disappointed. Myself? I was just glad that the Lotus Racing team finished the race!

Other than the Lotus Cosworth, this Satria Neo R3 was on display as well at the Homecoming celebration in Pavillion.

    Some exceptional thoughts here. Are you convinced this really is the proper strategy to appear at it although? My own individual experience is the fact that most people have to quite very much reside and let stay due to the fact what only one person thinks just — a different individual purely does not. Human beings are going to do what they would like to do. During the end, they often do. The most we can pray for is usually to highlight a number of stuff below and there that hopefully, enables them to build just a tiny better informed choice. Otherwise, remarkable article. You’re without doubt producing me consider!

    A particular of my favored items about blogging is this community of bloggers. We aren’t cut-throat. We share successes and miseries. And when anything performs, we really don’t continue to keep it to ourselves – we want it to function for every body. I really like blogging and hope that it becomes full-time single day, but I delight in the finding out and growing (the journey) and am an exceptionally patient man.
