The 2015 Lotus Cup Europe provisional calendar has been released, and the FIA International Series will visit Germany, Belgium, France and the United Kingdom in a championship that will visit seven of the continent’s best circuits.
The calendar includes several prestigious meetings, starting with the Jim Clark Revival weekend at Hockenheim in April. The championship then heads to France, first at Dijon-Prenois, then Magny- Cours, with both events taking place in May.
Lotus Cup Europe will once again support the Fun Cup 25 Hour and British GT Championship at Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps in July. The following month the championship will join its UK counterparts at the annual Brands Hatch Lotus Festival.
The season will end with two support slots to the popular sport of Truck Racing. The series is already regular feature on the bill of the European Truck Racing Championship’s Zolder round in September, a tradition that will continue next year.
As with this season, the 2015 championship is likely to be decided at Le Mans, and series organisers have staged a major coup by joining the bill of the hugely-popular 24 Heures de Camions, finals weekend for the FIA European Truck Racing Championship and French Truck Racing Championship.
Series organiser LoTRDC are confident of strong grids after a successful 2014 season, in which Jérémy Lourenço was crowned champion.
