Lotus Silverstone reveal Elise Cup 250 Type 25 Edition

I'm pretty sure it's illegal in the UK to drive with a number sticker on the car, hence it being used for a 'Cup 250' sticker on this car.

Sorry, not illegal but frowned upon by the MSA...

MSA Reg Q11.1.2 states "Competition numbers must be covered at all times when driving on the public highway"

We had a couple of drivers pulled at Brands Hatch in the first year of LoTRDC about it,* one of the MSA guys saw them driving into the circuit with their numbers on display. Two strips of pvc tape crossed through temporary  is acceptable... bit pathetic really.

Wonder how this car has the 5spoke forged wheels on it? Thought Lotus had cleared all the old stock out. Or have Silverstone had them on the shelf.

Still the best looking wheel they've done IMHO, they should bring them back.

Perfectly legal to drive on the road with race numbers. The various racing clubs/blue book all have it in their regs that if your car is road legal then you cannot have visible race numbers when driving it to and from events. It’s a stupid rule.

Yup. But you don’t cover up that, only the race numbers. Our lot got arsy one event and forced us to make them illegible rather than the customary pointless cross over the number. It’s a stupid rule.
