    Tony Shute joins Caterham

    tony-schute.jpg

    Tony Shute who until recently was Head of Product at Lotus Cars; responsible for engineering the Evora, Exige and Elise and a 20-year veteran of the company, resigned from Lotus and joined Caterham a few months ago. Shute has been joined at Caterham by several other Lotus employees and is now hard at work on Caterham’s next generation of road cars.

    Ansar was keen to point out that Caterham did not poach Tony or any other personnel from Lotus, they made this choice themselves, but clearly Caterham will now benefit from the infusion of Tony’s knowledge and experience in developing a more mainstream road car.

    Or Caterham just made them offers they couldn't refuse. Carterham just got lots of investment cash.

    I think it may be more of a story of good news at Caterham rather than bad news at Lotus.Smiley

    Let's hope so. Smiley

    Just looks odd that a group of people should leave for pastures new at a time when Lotus appears to be making some great advances.

    So what are they talking about here? New Caterham that will compete with Lotus et. al.?

    And does anybody know what will happen to the Caterham SuperSeven?
