And what better way for Lotus to celebrate the height of the British summer than with a jolly good polo match? This weekend (Saturday 17th July) sees exactly that as Hurtwood Park Polo Club play host to the prestigious Asprey World Class Cup Polo. The event, proudly sponsored by Lotus (see our clever little equation above), is in aid of a selection of worthwhile causes including His Royal Highness Prince Harry’s charity, Sentebale.
As partners of the event, Lotus will be taking the Evora Experience to Hurtwood allowing the great and the good of the British polo set to test their driving skills by “virtually” racing this 3.5ltr V6 vehicle on Playstation’s Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. Wannabe race drivers can pit their racing skills against the fast and furious in a bid to rule supreme on the leader board. And if that whets their appetite, the Lotus team will be on hand to discuss test-driving the real thing.
Hurtwood Park Polo Club is the latest destination on Lotus’ tour of key cities throughout Europe, the idea behind the interactive venture is quite simple: To allow people to experience the new Lotus Evora firsthand before testing their driving skills by booking an exclusive test drive or track experience. Can’t make the polo this weekend? No problem, after Hurtwood Lotus moves on to the delights of the CLA Game Fair in Warwickshire (23rd-25th July) the world’s biggest country sports and outdoor pursuits event.
