INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Dragon Racing has filed a lawsuit against Lotus seeking at least $4.6 million in damages, accusing the engine manufacturer of damaging its reputation and ability to be competitive.
The lawsuit, filed Friday in California Superior Court in Los Angeles, is just the latest blow for Lotus.
The manufacturer has just one team left in the IndyCar Series after Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and Bryan Herta Autosport were released from their contracts late last month.
Dragon fields cars for Sebastien Bourdais and Katherine Legge. Owner Jay Penske did not respond to a request for comment Monday. Representatives from Lotus and the IndyCar Series both said they
could not comment.
