  1. Hi just been speaking to motorsport Uk about fia historic passports. Was the blue lotus turbo OPW 679W ever raced in Fia events in the day or just national events? That’s my main hurdle I need to know. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks again to all who have helped so far.
  2. Yes, it is. I still can’t find much info on it though. I’m after the technical info of what parts where used and make model of them etc.. anything really! So, if anyone knows anything or has any photos inside the car when it was a race car of the dash/interior, under boot, etc. engine bay photos showing the engine that would be much appreciated. You could send them to my email address: [email protected] regards
  3. The engine doesn’t matter for me. I just need photos of an ‘80’s competition car and I can copy that so I can make an exact copy to get a FIA htp cert. That S1 looks good.
  4. Yes, fia group 4 htp based on a road car is fundamentally what I’m after. As well as a S1 and S2 couldn’t I make it out of a S3 ?
  5. Thanks Jaap, that’s a lot of information. Thanks! I’ll need to be going in the direction of the car being based on a road car and not a space frame and would need to be road legal. Historic competition road/race car. That’s why I linked the blue one above, but can only find limited info on it. I do know it’s now in a museum in the Uk. But I would need to know it’s spec to copy it as it ran in the day. Or something similar which raced in the ‘80’s.
  6. Hi, I’m considering taking on a lotus esprit project and turn it into a replica race/rally car with An FIA historic technical passport (htp) ideally a series 2, 2.2 or series 3 turbo or non-turbo. So, just to start, I’ve seen a blue S3 turbo raced by Gerry Marshall in the ‘80’s on this forum. (Photo below) Has anyone got any more info, technical spec or photos of the car as it raced in the day. Also, was there any other Series 2 or series 3 cars racing at this period in time? clubman, amateur or professional? Any help would be much appreciated.
