  5. With three weeks to go final preparations are now being made for what is sure to be the biggest and best event for Lotus enthusiasts in 2009, the Lotus Festival to be held on 14 June at Snetterton race circuit in Norfolk. Focal point of the action on the track will be no less than four Elise Trophy races – two each for the Production and Modified/2-Eleven classes. The racing has been as thrilling as ever at the first three events of the season and plenty of action will be assured at Snetterton. A highlight of the racing will be the guest appearance of double World Land Speed Record holder Andy Green as part of a fund-raising exercise for Bloodhound SSC, the next record attempt – the target is 1,000 miles per hour! Andy will be racing a Bloodhound SSC-liveried Elise in the Production class. Sponsorship is available for either
  6. <span style="font-size: 12pt;"> Press release from Lotus Cars 19/5/09: Despite the global downturn, Group Lotus business is buoyant with the introduction of the all-new car, the Evora, and increased contract engineering. Monday, 4th May 2009 saw the beginning of a two-week long press launch of the long-awaited new Lotus Evora at Loch Lomond in Scotland, a launch which has now been hailed as a huge success for the company.
  7. Another link with the early days of Lotus competition history has been lost with the recent death of Tony Marsh at the age of 77. Anthony Ernest Marsh was born into the Worcestershire family that controlled the Marsh & Baxter pork pie company and first started competing whilst in his twenties. His first racing car was a Cooper JAP and he soon made his mark on the hills, winning the British Hillclimb Championship in 1956, ’57 & ’58. [readmore]

  10. Well, that's got your attention. Yes, the Evora has finally arrived and a few selected journalists have been given the opportunity to drive the car. The words at the top of the page were not written this week, or even this year. They in fact appeared in the March 1974 edition of Car magazine, the leading monthly having scooped the new Elite a couple of months ahead of launch, with a series of pictures taken on the side of the road in Wymondham. However, those words could be equally true today. [readmore] Read more... View the full article

  13. Celebrating another win! Back in 1994 the British Touring Car Championship was riding high, with no less than ten manufacturers and many star drivers involved, so controversy was never far away. That particular season it centred on Alfa Romeo, the flamboyant Italians arriving in Britain with an interesting interpretation of the rules governing aerodynamic addenda! Matters had reached a head prior to the May Bank Holiday meeting at Snetterton and Alfa were forced to reduce the height of their rear wings. Add to that the fact that team leader Gabriele Tarquini rolled his regular 155 race car into a ball during pre-event testing and you can imagine just how highly charged the atmosphere was. But it was events back in their home country of Italy that were to overshadow the weekend…
