CTL moved into a new purpose built building 2 years ago, over the road from the Lotus factory. They do tours of their collection and I visited today. If you’re into Lotus racing cars it’s well worth a visit. Here are some pics:-

It was interesting to see the Lotus 88 twin chassis car, 3rd from last. Although banned and never raced it was Chapmans last car.

I did a tour around their previous facility about 10 years ago, a truly terrific day out.
