Seems to be riding very high at the front...

I wonder what will happen to his Blue/White Sprint?

My guess is Dorset Racing Associates have something to do with its current ride height, front and rear.
Will it be a real eye opener on selling price? parce que provenance? . . . or maybe Elans are Still under the radar value?

Oh and how many possible purchasers will know who Ron Hickman was?
Not too many Lotus purchasers even know who Colin Chapman was! :shock:
