Club News & Events - JEWSON’S HORNSEY PLANNING TO DEMOLISH HISTORIC LOTUS SHOWROOM

JEWSON’S HORNSEY PLANNING TO DEMOLISH HISTORIC LOTUS SHOWROOM

Everyone interested in Lotus Cars and local history wish to know about a recent planning application to demolish the site where Colin Chapman founded Lotus Engineering in Tottenham Lane, North London in 1953.

You can read the application No. HGY/2015/0311 together with the objections received so far at the following web address: http://opn8.co.uk/lotusN8 

As the birthplace of Lotus Cars this building has enormous local, national and international significance and must be saved.

In 1984, with the agreement of Haringey Council, Club Lotus erected a plaque on one of the original Lotus office buildings on the site commemorating Colin Chapman and the Lotus Engineering Company which became the world famous Lotus Car Company. This building along with several others is now under threat of demolition.

A photo of the plaque can be seen at http://colinchapmanmuseum.org.uk/

 In 2004 Haringey Council recognised this by adding 7 Tottenham Lane to its Register of Local Listed Buildings.

Club Lotus has just submitted its own objection and we urge all Lotus enthusiasts to look at the application and make their own objections to the application. This is the only way you can influence the council’s decision and you only have until February 18th to do so.


Club News & Events - HORNSEY CARNIVAL JULY 4th 2015, 2-4pm

HORNSEY CARNIVAL JULY 4th 2015, 2-4pm

Chris Arnold (Graham Arnold’s son) has been in discussions with the organisers of this historic carnival and suggested that they need something more to relate it back to the history of Hornsey. He has suggested adding to the parade a range of old Lotus cars to celebrate Hornsey as the birthplace of Lotus Cars and early home of Colin Chapman.

He is therefore looking for owners would like to drive in the parade in North London on Sat 4th July, 2-4pm. 
Ideally he’d love to get a Patrick McGoohan lookalike in a 7 and a Emma Peel lookalike in an Elan and would also like to have a range of other Lotus cars too.

Can you help? If so contact Jane at Club Lotus – 01362 691144 / 694459 or jane@clublotus.co.uk and she will give you Chris’ contact details.

LoTRDC November Snetterton Sprint – open to all
LoTRDC November Snetterton Sprint – open to all LoTRDC will be holding a standalone sprint at Snetterton on Saturday 1 November, on the final day of its 2014 season.  The sprint will form part of a special Lotus day at the Norfolk circuit, which is situated less than 15 miles from the Hethel factory. The final round of the Lotus Cup UK and Elise Trophy championships will also take place on the day, with the Lotus Cup UK SuperSport and Production titles both being decided under cover of darkness at the climax of an extended two-hour race.  The sprint is open to all Lotus cars, with three classes running on the day. In addition to the Lotus Cup UK Speed Championship’s SuperSport and Production classes, there will be an invitation category for other Lotus cars.  The sprint course will run on the Snetterton 300 circuit, from the start line on the Senna Straight and ending at two-thirds distance of the Bentley Straight. The combination of fast and slow corners will provide a thrilling challenge to enthusiastic drivers.  Entrants can enjoy parade laps and a pitwalk on the day, and, of course, the chance to perform in front of a crowd of Lotus enthusiasts. There will be the opportunity for everyone who attends in a Lotus to take part in a parade lap around the circuit.  Drivers will have two practice runs in the morning, followed by three timed runs after lunch. Entries cost just £110 per driver and can be made by visiting www.lotrdc.com/forms/lotus-cup-uk-speed-championship-fees-forms-2014-11544/

Lotus Cup Europe set to star at the Bosch Hockenheim Historic - Jim Clark Revival meeting 
The opening round of the 2014 Lotus Cup Europe championship is shaping up to be a memorable event on 11-13 April.  The championship, which gained FIA International Series status in 2013, will be supporting the Bosch Hockenheim Historic – Jim Clark Revival meeting at Hockenheim. The German Grand Prix venue will be staging a weekend of historic and modern racing, featuring some of the sport’s most famous categories.  Top of the bill will be Historic Formula 1 cars from 1966 to 1985, an era in which Team Lotus thrived, and the drivers will be competing for the Jim Clark Cup. More contemporary Grand Prix machinery can be found in the BOSS GP category, whilst there will be demonstration laps from Toyota’s 2002, 2004 and 2008 World Championship challengers.
The Race Club Germany will also be demonstrating classic F1 cars and other great single seaters at the event.  Historic Formula 2, the FIA Lurani Trophy for Formula Junior cars and Formula V will also take to the track for races, whilst Sportscars including CanAm and Touring Cars will also thrill fans.  Lotus Cup Europe joins the bill for the first time this year, celebrating Jim Clark’s association with the British marque. The championship will provide a more modern take on proceedings, whilst the racing is expected to be close as the drivers get their 2014 campaigns underway. 
Last season Thomas Dehaibe won the title from the Production classes after a close battle in which V6 Cup and 2-Eleven category drivers were also in contention. The Evora and V6 Exige cars will start as pre-race favourites in the two races, which incorporate both standing and rolling starts.  The Bosch Hockenheim Historic – Jim Clark Revival meeting will be an unmissable event for Lotus fans across the continent, and the race programme makes it one of the best historic events of the season.  Tickets for the event are available from 25 Euros, with a weekend passes priced at 35 Euros. Meanwhile entry is free for all children aged 16 years or younger when accompanied by an adult. For more information on the Bosch Hockenheim Historic - Jim Clark Revival, visit www.hockenheim-historic.de and www.hockenheimring.de

Snetterton set to provide a spring treat for Lotus enthusiasts
The opening round of the LoTRDC racing season takes place at Snetterton, just a few miles from the Lotus Factory, on the weekend of 5-6 April. Lotus Cup UK will kick off with a 90 minute race on the Saturday. Simon Deacon and Andy Napier are the reigning champions in the SuperSport and Production categories respectively. A capacity grid is expected, with V6 Cup, 2-Eleven, Exige Cup and Open Class cars racing for overall and SuperSport honours. The 2013 season ended on the same 300 circuit and just like that event, the extra distance is expected to add further spice to the race.
There’s even more Lotus content on the Sunday, with the inaugural Elise Trophy championship round providing the main highlight. Both new and familiar names are expected to make up the full grid for the 20-minute races. The day will also see the second round of the new Lotus Cup UK Speed Championship. A capacity entry should provide a thrilling set of qualifying-style laps as the sprint competitors put on a show that should prove to be every bit as good as the racing. Seven Lotus track sessions will complete a superb weekend for enthusiasts of the marque.
Adding to the fun, anyone turning up to the event in a Lotus can sample the circuit for themselves by taking part in a parade lap during the lunch break on Sunday, as well as benefit from a Lotus parking area.
Tickets will go on sale from http://www.lotrdc.com/calendar/5-6-april-snetterton-300-10848/ at just £6 each including postage and packing for Lotus enthusiasts. Entry is also free for children aged 12 and under.

Lotus News - CALLING ALL ELISE LOVERS!

CALLING ALL ELISE LOVERS!

Elise

Top Gear magazine has shortlisted the 1996 Lotus Elise in its quest to find the greatest car of the last 20 years.  It is an online vote that will take place in the run up to the 20th anniversary edition of the magazine. If you agree that the Elise deserves to be recognised as one of the greatest cars of the last 20 years, then please go to www.topgear.com/20years and place your vote!

Since its launch in 1996, the Lotus Elise has become one of the most loved and iconic Lotus cars of all time. We have built over 30,000 Elise cars in 17 years, that's over 33% of the Lotus' entire production!

The success of the Elise is not just down to its purist dynamic characteristics or it's cool looks; you petrolheads out there will appreciate just how clever the car is too!  From its pioneering bonded and extruded aluminium chassis to it's composite crash structure, the Elise was the catalyst for a new generation of performance through light weight and enabled other premier niche vehicles to exist such as the Opel Speedster / Vauxhall VX220, all of the current Aston Martin range, the Tesla Roadster, Lotus' own  Exige, Elise 340R, Europa, 2-Eleven and even the Lotus Evora.
