Charouz Racing System (CHRS, also was known as Lotus in —World Series Formula V8 3.5) is a racing team from Czech Republic, created in 1985 by Antonín Charouz.

History[edit]

In the 1980s, Charouz participated in the European Championship of Circuit Races' 1600 cc division in a Toyota Corolla. By 1992, they prepared cars for a special cup series for Ford Fiestas, Escort RS 2000s and Pumas.

Since 1998, Charouz has competed in the European Rally Championship, Slovak Championship and European Zone series.[1]

When the A1 Grand Prix series debuted in 2005, Charouz managed the A1 Team Czech Republic.[2] The team later took over management duties for A1 Team Brazil.[3]

New for 2007 was the entrance into endurance racing with the Le Mans Series. Competing with a Lola-Judd prototype, the team finished the year fifth in their class championship, including a second-place finish at Valencia. For 2008 the team entered a cooperation with Aston Martin Racing and Prodrive, running a new Lola B08/60 coupe in the Le Mans Series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The B07/17 from 2007 was entered at Le Mans under the Charouz banner, but the car was run by Greg Pickett's Team Cytosport with help from Sam Hignett's Jota Sport, the same organization who prepared this car for Charouz in 2007.

In 2010 Charouz ran four cars in the Auto GP series.
