Sadly I can't help with any information on car, but what a great buy. 

Well done for taking the plunge and getting the car back to Europe.

Back in the day, just about every Esprit came out of Paul's shop with those Gotti's, red Koni's and a Weber conversion, mine included and I bet the race car is the same. Paul was a good wrench as well and the car's were well sorted. His personal car then was a Europa with a Cosworth BDA in it. Wicked. He's obviously gone on to bigger and better Lotus.  😎 Good luck and have fun with the car. Keep us posted on the exploits!

Personally I like the two with the red in them. Great project, really looking forward to seeing a video of her in action when  completed.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Resurrection!

Hi plumdeplakmuis

I hope that all is well with you. Just wondering if you had finished the build and whether you are using it?

I recently met another S2 race car owner who races and lives in Denmark (He bought his red S2 racing car from Scotland in 2019/20). 

Always interested to hear how a fellow Esprit race car owner is getting on..

@plumdeplakmuis according to this registry of Lotus Esprits, I would have the original engine of this car 261H in my newly acquired 105H. I am curious if you have the original engine of 105H. The original engine number is AC7770413717

Not sure what the engine is, I plan to keep it original on the side if I ever want to sell the car. For racing I'm building a new engine. FYI chassis nr is 771050261H or 77050261H
