The Lotus team has joined forces with The Dark Knight Rises for the upcoming British Grand Prix.

The deal means the team's cars, as well as its garage, driver helmets and overalls, will feature the film's iconic logo throughout the Silverstone event this weekend.

Lotus said the movie's Tumbler vehicle will also be on display during the British Grand Prix.

"This season we have been the dark horses in the championship fight, so this partnership with The Dark Knight Rises is a fantastic match," said team boss Eric Boullier.

"Our car, the E20, looks superb with the Batman branding and we are looking forward to seeing the reaction of our numerous fans when it takes to the Silverstone circuit this weekend.

"We are certainly hoping for an epic conclusion for The Dark Knight Rises E20 in the grand prix."
