Just add your name to the list with details of your car and monitor this post for further information. There is no entry form and is a fairly informal day and is good fun.

Hi folks,

Thanks for your support so far on this event.

It would be great to make it a "50 years of Lotus" event.

 

We've got 2015 cars, can anyone help out with a 1965 or earlier?
