Lotus 70th Anniversary Photos

PostPost by: trw99 » Tue Sep 25, 2018 9:41 am

Per my posting over on the 'Lotus 70th Anniversary event' thread, I suspect that many on here, unable to attend Hethel on Saturday, would like to see photos from those members who do.

I therefore suggested that we open a new thread, so that all photos can be posted in one place. And so here it is.

I'm kicking off by showing what the tickets and window sticker look like. Not that exciting, but a start!

More later.

Looking forward to the photos as well. What do the different colored stickers mean? Would be nice to get a repro for display on cars-I like the yellow one!

Yellow = Infield parking, Lotus cars only
Red = Car for club display area
Green = Car for one of each type parade lap

I believe that is right but willing to be corrected. I have the yellow one for parking anyway.

Those tickets are really neat. I'll be looking for one on ebay.

Red is for one of each type parade lap. Neil Widddowson is going to take my Sprint round while I take the +2. Jim

Sorry we couldn’t catch up Tim, it was a good day wasn’t it ?

The only reason I’m including this picture on an Elan site is because the bodywork was absolutely flawless

Regards
Richard

I'm sorry too, Richard.

It was indeed a good day. Impressive amount of money spent by Geely on presenting a bright future for Lotus and the details of the day.

Subjectively, I thought the Elans were outnumbered by the Plus 2s. Very few Sevens, a handful of LoCorts, not many Europas either.

I saw part of the YouTube live stream. The weather looked fabulous. Fantastic cars too. I hope everyone enjoyed the day.
