Lotus Elise 250 Cup “R” Build

It’s no secret that we’ve been building, racing and winning with the Elise Cup R platform since we sold the first two factory cars back in 2014.  Since then we’ve taken a number of cars from factory-fresh road-going cars to high-specification road, track and race cars.

As Lotus do not produce a race-ready version of the Elise, there is some extensive reworking and other upgrade works required to bring the car to a level we are satisfied with for the circuit.

Our approach has always been to not only develop the car into capable race car, but to ensure the quality of the finished product is excellent – right down to the interior trim!

This well-proven recipe for the Elise Cup-R touches on all elements of the car.  Including safety, durability, ride and handling, transmission, braking, electronics and engine performance.  This car has been built within the regulations of the Elise Trophy.

We offer a range of upgrade options for all aspects of these cars including engine performance packages, ECU remapping and complete programmable ECU solutions.  We have been a Komo-Tec flagship store since 2005 and currently offer 2ZR-FE performance packages up to 285bhp.  The JRZ Race One-Way suspension kit featured on this car can be valved with a road/track or a track/race bias as can our JRZ packages for all Lotus models.

Looking to improve your car for track or race use?  We build and provide support to a number of cars for various UK-based series and are now taking bookings for vehicle builds for the 2022 season. Call 01473 811811 or email greg@hangar111.com if you would like more information on what we can do to support your racing aspirations.

Looking for a Cup R for the track?   We currently have available a very high-spec model was completed by us in 2017 using a brand-new factory car.  It has full CoC documentation and can be road-registered.  More details in our car sales section – here.

Snetterton Elise Trophy Sunday 28th July 2019

As you may or may not know, next Sunday the 28th July is the Elise Trophy Snetterton round.  Hangar 111 Racing will be in attendance with three cars and drivers: Chris Marks (Elise Cup), Tim Stracey (Elise 220S) and Mark Richardson (Elise S1). 

This is a local event for us so we will be putting together a few treats for those who want to come and join in with what will hopefully be not only a great weather weekend but also a chance to see our race team in action with all three drivers on the grid.

On display we will have our Komo-Tec Exige EX460 featuring carbon aero from our carbon fibre partner Reverie.  There will be a chance to take a closer look at both Elise S3 race cars we are running that feature EMU Black engine management and JRZ’s One-Way Race Suspension kits.

There will be a chance to speak to us about Scholar Engines who have been building our road, track and race engines for the last 15 years.  Our Elise S1 has been running with a Scholar built engine for almost 10 years.  Ask us about upcoming development works on the 2ZR-FE (Elise S3) engine and 2GR-FE (V6) developments for road and track.

It will be a busy weekend so we have enlisted some help from Marianne and Abby who can deal with any workshop enquiries you might have.  Greg and Dave will also be on hand to answer any technical or race support related questions.  There will also be a few overstock items of Lotus merchandise at crazy low prices too!

We will be in the top area of the paddock just off the entry road so you can’t miss us!

STOP PRESS!: WE HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF SUNDAY ENTRY TICKETS TO GIVE AWAY. TICKETS CAN BE EMAILED. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS. EMAIL US TO ENQUIRE!

We look forward to seeing you there!
