Lotus Praga LMP2 statement released

Courts make preliminary ruling to allow Lotus Praga cars on track in Le Mans.

Lotus Praga LMP2/Kodewa have instructed their lawyers to file a criminal complaint against Stéphane Chosse, Adess AG and SCE Solutions on Monday, 17th June 2013.

Stéphane Chosse is in debt and owes Kodewa a seven-figure amount. Chosse presented fictitious and not justified invoices to the court in France. He insisted that Kodewa is in debt. This is not true.

On Tuesday evening (18th June), a bailiff seized parts of the Lotus Praga T128 LMP2 cars.

The court in Le Mans decided this afternoon (19th June) to give the seized parts back to the team as the allegations were reasonless.

The Lotus Praga team cars are scheduled to be on track for the evening practice and qualifying sessions in Le Mans.

Kodewa will take further action against Stéphane Chosse, Adess AG and SCE Solutions.
