Court battle: Lotus’ cars finally leave Belgium

SPA, Belgium – Four days after the Belgian GP, Lotus and its black and gold cars have finally left Spa-Francorchamps.

All of the Enstone team’s transporters and race equipment had been barred from returning to its UK headquarters by court bailiffs, following action taken by disgruntled former reserve driver Charles Pic.

Pic is demanding an $800 000 settlement for breach of contract, but it is believed he is not the only creditor. Toyota is understood to also be owed money.

ALLOWED TO LEAVE SPA

Nonetheless, Lotus has now been allowed to leave Spa, French broadcaster Canal Plus reports.

Canal Plus said: “Although the dispute between Lotus and Pic is not fully resolved, progress has been made.”
