Lotus Elan

How many "FIA GTS10 " cars are currently racing?

PostPost by: Frogelan » Fri Sep 13, 2019 1:24 pm

I went this summer to Francorchamps to watch the Spa Summer Classic (the excellent event where entry is free, not the expensive P***r Auto event) and was pleased to see 22 Elans taking part.

This lead me, as a keen anorak, to look through my own photos of all the GTS cars (in Europe) that I could find as well as those freely available on the internet. After prodding a few friends for other photos, I have come up with 101 cars which have been on the track in the last 5 years.

One of the reasons for doing this was to see what colour schemes were popular and here are the results:

Black 6
Blue 31
Green 18
Grey / silver 8
Gold/ yellow / orange 11
Red 13

I have prepared a list with a photo / brief details per car and would be happy to share this (8 page PDF) with existing forum members who make a request.

As suggested by one of my friends, I will not post this in the public domain as I have borrowed a few photos from Google images / screen snaps etc and I do not want to be chased by aggrieved snappers, wives, girlfriends, taxmen etc...

I'm currently assembling an S2 GTS car with many many ££££ of parts from TTR!!
Currently undecided on colour or colour scheme, so this will help immensely

Happy to send out the list but it is a 11 Mo PDF and even cut up this is too heavy!

Please send your personal e-mail address by PM...

Thanks

Hi. Been collecting a serious of photos myself, not as comprehensive as yours, as will be painting our car sometime soon, and still no definitive colour choice.
Would be very interested to see the variations you have, if you might possibly drop me a copy to:-

Current thinking is similar to this US car, quiet an aggressive race colour though.

Thanks, Freddie

Hello Freddie,

I like that design very much as well though it might make scrutineers at Goodwood choke on their cucumber sandwiches !

I will send the list...after an update after the weekend.

Regards
