Lotus Festival gets underway at Brands Hatch

Saturday, August 24 2013

The Lotus Festival kicks off at Brands Hatch today (Saturday), with a range of activities both on and off track, celebrating the charismatic British sports and racing marque.

On track, a practice session for all three of the Lotus on Track racing series will see the current modern Lotus range put through its paces. The Lotus Cup UK and Lotus Cup Europe championships feature Elise, Exige, Evora and 340R models, whilst the Elise Trophy showcases normally aspirated Elises and Exiges.

The day's track action includes the first Lotus Cortina 50th Anniversary race, featuring a grid of the legendary tin tops taking on the Grand Prix circuit. There is also both qualifying and racing from the cream of MotorSport Vision Racing's championships and series.

Lotus owners will take to the circuit at 1:35pm for a parade lap, whilst 340R drivers will have a second opportunity at 4:50pm.

Off track, there's a chance to get a close-up look at all kinds of Lotuses, plus products from the factory and trade stands. Later in the evening there will also be live music, including a band formed from Lotus owners!
