Lotus Festival – Sunday June 14th

The 2009 Elise Trophy moves onto Snetterton In June and organisers LoTRDC have organised a full range of attractions to support the racing and make it a real day out.

In addition to 4 Elise Trophy races – 2 for Production cars and two for Modified/211 you can enjoy:

  • World record attempt for largest parade of Lotus cars (see below)
  • Lotus Type 72 Formula 1 car demonstration lap
  • Lotus concours d’elegance – pre 1973, 1974-1995, 1996 onwards
  • Lotus clubs displays and historic parades including F1 cars
  • Lotus related trade stands (including HANGAR 111)
  • Classic Team Lotus display and merchandise
  • Weekend camping with Saturday night BBQ and band
  • Lotus enthusiasts pedal car race
  • Full support race programme – no fewer than 11 races on the day

The fastest man on Earth and double World Land Speed Record-holder, Wing Commander Andy Green, will be competing in the Elise Trophy at the wheel of a Lotus Elise. Andy’s involvement will help to raise awareness and funds for the Bloodhound SSC project.

For those of you who don’t already know, Bloodhound SSC is the latest project to be undertaken by Richard Noble and Andy Green and was launched at London’s Science Museum last October by government minister Lord Drayson. The target for Bloodhound is to exceed 1,000mph (yes, that’s right!).

In conjunction with Lipscomb Lotus and Motorsport Vision there will be an attempt to get over 500 Lotus cars in a parade around Snetterton circuit on Sunday afternoon. The previous record was set in 2007 with 313 Lotus’ taking to Brands Hatch but with the longer Snetterton circuit access should be easier this time. Cars will be assembled around midday before setting off on the record attempt.

You’ll need to pre-register to take part in the Lotus Festival record attempt for the Largest number of Lotus Cars in a parade. You’ll then receive one email update in April, May and one week before in June keeping you abreast of event details and times.
