Lotus F1 team is delighted to announce that it will join forces with ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ motion picture trilogy, this weekend at Silverstone for the 2012 British Grand Prix. To celebrate the partnership both Lotus F1 Team cars – in addition to the team’s garage, driver helmets and overalls – will feature the film’s iconic logo throughout the Grand Prix weekend. The legendary Tumbler vehicle will also be performing an on-track display with the Lotus F1 Team car and drivers Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean.
Eric Boullier, Lotus F1 Team, Team Principal: “This season we have been the dark horses in the championship fight, so this partnership with ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is a fantastic match. Our car, the E20, looks superb with the Batman branding and we are looking forward to seeing the reaction of our numerous fans when it takes to the Silverstone circuit this weekend. We are certainly hoping for an epic conclusion for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ E20 in the Grand Prix.”
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ releases in South Africa on July 27th.
