    A return to our prime summer’s day at Europe’s best race circuit.

    For those who want to make an extended trip, Lotus Cup Europe will be racing at Spa over the weekend. We’ll have free tickets and paddock passes for everyone booking who requests them before June.

    General circuit information: HERE

    Noise limit: 103db drive by - 15metres from edge of track & 107db static

    Noise Limits

    Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away. The car is then held at 3/4 of its maximum rev limit and the highest reading recorded is the cars recorded noise output for the day. A static limit of 105db is very high and very few cars have an issue with this. At 98db cars with a cat, std factory manifolds and exhausts will generally be ok. Anyone with a very loud exhaust/manifold should be careful.

    Drive by – This test is recorded at track side as the car is moving at track speed. Depending on the circuit the reading will be taken between right next to the track and up to 20 meters away. Cars with forced induction tend to have more issues with drive by, even though they tend to pass static tests as the s/c or turbo’s only kick in when run at speed. There are many things that affect drive by readings from wind direction, air temperature, how low the cloud cover is or even what line you are driving.

    Format: Open Pit Lane

    Format

    A sessioned event means that the day will be structured into usually 3 separate groups which take it in turns to go out on track for a set time, norm ally 20 minutes. Each car will be restricted to their group for the duration of the day. Drivers are generally allocated a group depending on their experience level or type of car.

    An Open Pit Lane event means that cars are free to go out onto the track when they choose (providing the circuit limit or our normally reduced limit has not been reached).

    Set in the Cotswolds Castle Combe is often named as the ‘prettiest village in England.’ That’s the tourism side done now moving on to the race circuit 😊 With nearly 2 miles of wide track and just 12 cars on circuit Combe gives a great track/car ratio, giving all drivers plenty of space.

    We’re running the day in semi-open pit lane format as we trialled at Combe in 2020 – rather than put you in set groups you can queue up when you like. The day is being limited to just 28 cars rather than 36 if sessioned.

    General circuit information: HERE

    Noise limit: 100db static

    Noise Limits

    Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away. The car is then held at 3/4 of its maximum rev limit and the highest reading recorded is the cars recorded noise output for the day. A static limit of 105db is very high and very few cars have an issue with this. At 98db cars with a cat, std factory manifolds and exhausts will generally be ok. Anyone with a very loud exhaust/manifold should be careful.

    Drive by – This test is recorded at track side as the car is moving at track speed. Depending on the circuit the reading will be taken between right next to the track and up to 20 meters away. Cars with forced induction tend to have more issues with drive by, even though they tend to pass static tests as the s/c or turbo’s only kick in when run at speed. There are many things that affect drive by readings from wind direction, air temperature, how low the cloud cover is or even what line you are driving.

    COMING SOON

    Zandvoort – Nestled in the sand dunes just a stones throw from the beach and a short drive from Amsterdam this famous circuit is arguably one of the best in Europe. In an Elise it’s up there with the best – Spa, Dijon, Brands GP. In 2021 Zandvoort welcomes back the Dutch F1 Grand Prix.

    spax.jpg

    Spa Francorchamps – Our final day of 2021 in Belgium. If this day’s anything like the previous 7 November days in Spa we’re in for a treat – 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 in particular were great, dry, sunny days!

    Le Mans – Bugatti – Our annual visit to a circuit that needs no words. Over 2.5 miles of undulating track with a variety of challenging corners and wide run offs. Using the main arena for arguably the World’s greatest race the Le Mans 24hr and it’s modern facilities.

    For the second time in 5 years we return to an Open Pit Lane format at Le Mans, rather than running in sessions. This means cars must weigh between 800kg & 1800kg.

    To be clear all Elise S2 111R, Elise S3, Exiges, Evoras, VX220’s, Boxsters, Caymens and most other non Lotus types of car that we accept will be ok. Unfortunately we cannot accept Caterhams or Elise S1 as things stand. Elise S2 K series owners please email Paul.

    During lunch we’ll put all the cars on the legendary grid and then do a slow – photo lap with everyone who wants.

    Dijon Prenois Arguably one of Europes top 5 circuits with a history to match the circuit. Home to half a dozen Grand Prixs including the Swiss GP as well as the French. Probably most famous for one of the best races in F1s history when in 1979 the late Gilles Villeneuve and René Arnoux locked horns.

    Car Type: Strictly 2 seater road legal sports cars only. For further infomation please view our FAQ here.

    A return visit to the full 2700 meter long Clastres circuit with its mix of twisties from the original shorter circuit and sweeping turns and long straight from the new full circuit. Similar to Abbeville for Safety, Clastres is flat with good visibility and decent run off.

    General circuit information: HERE

    Noise limit: 95db static & 102db drive by *

    Noise Limits

    Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away. The car is then held at 3/4 of its maximum rev limit and the highest reading recorded is the cars recorded noise output for the day. A static limit of 105db is very high and very few cars have an issue with this. At 98db cars with a cat, std factory manifolds and exhausts will generally be ok. Anyone with a very loud exhaust/manifold should be careful.

    Drive by – This test is recorded at track side as the car is moving at track speed. Depending on the circuit the reading will be taken between right next to the track and up to 20 meters away. Cars with forced induction tend to have more issues with drive by, even though they tend to pass static tests as the s/c or turbo’s only kick in when run at speed. There are many things that affect drive by readings from wind direction, air temperature, how low the cloud cover is or even what line you are driving.

    Format: Open pit lane

    Format

    A sessioned event means that the day will be structured into usually 3 separate groups which take it in turns to go out on track for a set time, norm ally 20 minutes. Each car will be restricted to their group for the duration of the day. Drivers are generally allocated a group depending on their experience level or type of car.

    An Open Pit Lane event means that cars are free to go out onto the track when they choose (providing the circuit limit or our normally reduced limit has not been reached).

    Experience level: All levels

    Experience Levels

    All levels: Everyone
