AREVA Adds Support to Nuclear Clean Air Energy IndyCar Campaign

Indianapolis, IN (May 24, 2012) - Lotus HVM Racing welcomes nuclear energy giant AREVA as a sponsor of the #78 Nuclear Clean Air Energy IndyCar. AREVA - ranked first in the global nuclear energy industry - supported last year's inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix and is pleased to extend their participation with the program as it continues to successfully communicate 'Nuclear Clean Air Energy'.
AREVA joins Entergy as supporters on the #78 Nuclear Clean Air Energy IndyCar race team driven by Swiss driver Simona De Silvestro for the Indy500 as well as the remainder of the 2012 season.
"AREVA, the global leader in clean energy production, is once again pleased to partner with the Nuclear Clean Air Energy team. By joining with Simona and the team, we have another channel to deliver the message of nuclear energy as a safe, clean and reliable form of electricity production," stated Mike Rencheck, chief operating officer, AREVA, Inc.
De Silvestro is a great supporter of nuclear and clean energy. "I'm super excited to have AREVA on board with us on the Nuclear Clean Air Energy car," she said. "It's good to have a partnership with AREVA. I'm really proud to be driving on behalf of nuclear energy. It's nice that all of these companies in the nuclear business are coming together to get the message out about Nuclear Clean Air Energy."
John Herron, Entergy Nuclear CEO, said, "We're pleased AREVA joins us as a valued partner in our Nuclear Clean Air Energy national education initiative as we team up with Simona and the Lotus HVM racing team to broaden the reach of our nuclear science message and educate people in the United States about the safe and clean benefits of nuclear power."
AREVA and their guests will be on-hand at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday, May 27, 2012 to watch the 96th running of the world's most prestigious auto race. The Indy 500 will air on ABC beginning at 11:00 a.m. ET.
