Group Lotus is welcoming applications to one of the world’s most elite clubs – the Lotus Club GT. Here you won’t find leather Chesterfields, wood-paneled walls or the aroma of fine cigars; instead you’ll find bucket seats, carbon-fibre and the smell of burnt rubber.

Lotus Club GT’s current entry requirements are met with the purchase of one of Lotus’s premium race-bred models – the Evora GT4 and Evora Enduro with club specification. Club events come courtesy of the marque’s professional works drivers and the Lotus F1 Team. Club GT will ensure members get the most from their cars and from themselves, and become legends in their own lifetime.

All will be revealed at this week’s Autosport International Show at the Birmingham NEC which kicks off on Thursday (12th January). And, being Lotus, we’ve got plenty more to talk about – from developments with IndyCar and rally, through to some very exciting partner and sponsorship announcements, an update on the newly formed Lotus Racing kart team and the latest F1-honed development of our Type 125 programme.

For fans of the brand, the official Lotus stand (2520) is not to be missed – every available square metre has been exploited and crammed full of Lotus’s latest racing models and Lotus factory driver Johnny Mowlem and Commercial Director Tony Schulp will be there to talk about Lotus’ exciting motorsport activities for 2012. Both gentleman accompanied by some very special guests will be taking to the famous Autosport Stage from 12:45 on Thursday to reveal Lotus’ plans for 2012 including the rebrand from Lotus Motorsport to Lotus Racing.
