Three Esprits Went Down to Monaco.

Recommended Posts

A chap at work who used to work for Team Lotus and then latterly for Tyrell, is always telling me stories, since he saw my Esprit. Told me today that when the Lotus F1 team were sponsored by Essex Petroleum and he was working at Tyrell, Lotus asked if anyone from Tyrell was still due to fly out to Monaco as all the Lotus chaps were already testing in France. Tyrell hadn't gone so him and two other chaps drove one red, one white and one blue Esprit from UK to Monaco. They were asked to always be in the order, red, white and blue as they would be filmed during the trip from helicopters and other points.

He did say that non stop to Monaco in an Esprit was not to be recomended!

Sounds like an excellent photo opportunity. Does anyone know of any photos from this.


Look what Q's brought us. Isn't it nice!
