Lotus Renault GP partners with Ordos, Inner Mongolia

Build it, and they will come.  This is not so for Ordos.  The Chinese built a new city for a million people near a coal mining region in Inner Mongolia.  Problem is, the city sits empty.  No problem.  The powers-that-be decided to sponsor LRGP (to cover the cost of the noses Heidfeld kept destroying during practice). Reserve driver Ho-Ping Tung will act as ambassador.  Prosperity is just around the corner.  Right.

Here is a 2009 piece by Melissa Chan on Ordos.
