Lotus 60th

Just to give you who missed it an idea of the scale of things, I took a few pictures.

The Lotus cars were parked separately in four rows, and the rows must have been several hundreds of yards long.

Regards,
Stuart.

Yes, the Lotus parking area was enormous! Although, as you can see, it was mostly modern (i.e. post-1980s!) cars:

Lots of great cars in the carpark and nice to walk around the factory.
Well worth the ?15 for the 2 adults, we got there about 1pm and left at 5.30pm so lots to see.

Here are a few pics.

Old thread, I know, Jason, and I may have asked you this question already, but . . .

Could you tell me the colour of the Type 14 Elite in your picture set in this post? If it's not a Lotus colour, perhaps you could pass me on to the owner?

Thanks so much!!

Hi Randy

Sorry I do not know the owner.

Have a look at this website for Lotus colours: http://lotus-europa.com/colors.html
