Largest ever collection of Team Lotus F1 cars
The Classic Team Lotus Festival at Snetterton circuit presents a unique opportunity to see Team Lotus racing cars spanning more than fifty historic years of history all in the same place at one time with many taking to the track! Celebrating 50 Years since the first Lotus Grand Prix win by Sir Stirling Moss, Classic Team Lotus will bring together a mouth-watering selection of Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula Junior and sportscars to entertain enthusiasts, the highlight of which is sure to be three legendary cars made famous by Jim Clark, together for the first and probably only time; the 1963 World Championship Type 25, the 1965 Indianapolis 500-winning Type 38 and the DFV-powered Type 49 that claimed the 1967 Dutch GP on its debut.
In addition appearances will also be made by World Championship-winning Lotus F1 cars that were originally driven by Graham Hill, Jochen Rindt, Emerson Fittipaldi and Mario Andretti, plus examples raced by Ronnie Peterson, Nigel Mansell, Elio De Angelis and Ayrton Senna. Aside from the historic Team Lotus displays there will be a full programme of racing, appropriately headlined by rounds of both the action-packed Elise Trophy and Lotus Cup Europe.
Away from the track, there will be plenty to see with static displays from Classic Team Lotus and various Lotus owners' clubs plus a full array of trade stands too, with everything from memorabilia, clothing and models to tuning components.
A thrilling day is assured - don't miss it!
