Once again, Brands Hatch was the venue for this year’s Lotus Festival. With the promise of a sunny August Bank Holiday weekend thousands attended the event which included over 1,000 Lotus cars parked up inside the circuit. With a full weekend of exciting racing from many race series and championships including Lotus Cup UK, Elise Trophy and the FIA LoTRDC Lotus Cup Europe, there was plenty for visitors to see and do. Despite typical Bank Holiday showers, the Show ‘n Shine competition had a record entry list with some stunning cars lined up, making judging incredibly hard. LotusBits reported a good number of people joining them with their Lotus Sunbeam rally cars on Brand Hatch’s very own rally stage and all 12 Lotus clubs in attendance seemed to thoroughly enjoy the weekend.
A big thanks must go to Paul Golding of LoTRDC, Dave Willey of MSVR (Brands Hatch), all clubs and their members who came, the traders and to the visitors who made the event a great success. We’ll hope to see you all again in 2017.
