Lotus actually recommend fitting the tow eye pack as they have found when attaching the tow ropes to pull you out of the kitty litter the nose has a tendency to dig down causing more damage to the car

I understand (from Scott @ B&C) that it can't be retrofitted to "early" cars like mine (build number 157) and is only an option on cars built since the introduction of the "2-11 light" - apparently it is something to do with there being no suitable mounting points.

Lotus in "Track car with no towing eye" shock!

Looks like I shall need to talk to Lotus sport then!

Have only left the confines of the track twice this year - once onto the grass (just kept going and rejoined track) and once into the rape seed (due to small river flowing across track) fortunately I went in forwards, did a 180 degree spin whilst in the crop and came to rest facing the hole I had made in the crop. With good fortune, I was able to drive out the way I came in - but the car was covered in wet, sticky yellow flowers. I'm sure Paul will think of some witty comment - the marshals asked if I had been to a wedding!
