In conjunction with EVO magazine, Lotus are offering one lucky person the chance to drive an Evora S for 12 months with their compliments to enjoy the car and write about their experiences (website). From hundreds of entries, the write ups and photography led to the judges picking 20 finalists who recently spent the day at Lotus HQ in Hethel, Norfolk driving on the newly refurbished track in the Elise and Evora. As well as the driving experience, the finalists were asked to tape a live interview in the car on camera, nerve wracking stuff for our budding trainee journalists! The jury is still out but the final 5 will be announced soon and the overall winner in December. Watch this space for more news as we have it.
One of the contestants was TLF regular Scott Budds, a local chap who is current restoring his 1985 Turbo Esprit (in his own time!). Buddsy’s write ups can be found here and the rest of the finalists are here but his most outstanding work can be found in the video he produced for the event. Enjoy!
