The team collects huge volumes of data during races

Team Lotus collects huge amounts of data during races, from data on the pressure of the tyres to positions of every part in the gearbox. Wherever in the world the car is racing, data is sent back to the UK for analysis within five minutes using a 4Mbps MPLS link and broadband connection.

Solid state drives are used to store data due to the vibrations of the race track, which would destroy a spinning HDD.
