[SIZE=14]Also raced at Lime Rock, someplace in PA, etc.
Raced under Lotus Division of Dutchess Auto Company.
Peter Pulver is one name I remember.
A lot of their literature was Lotus/East Distributors Salsbury, Conn.
After getting wrong parts from other Lotus sources, I became a regular customer. You paid more, but were sure of getting the right part. They were never one to miss an opportunity, and soon put me on all their mailing lists. Went to a couple of races.
Used to get race specials, modification parts, everything. Used to look at it & toss. I saved the last M & M checklist they mailed out and(modifications and maintenance), and a couple of the Lotus brochures they printed under the Lotus/East name.
