Under the organization of Lotus Historic Register Germany, Mr. Siegfried Herrmann, a group of 30 german Lotus Enthusiasts joined the 70 anniversary celebration at Lotus Company in Hethel, England, at the last weekend of September 2018.
We were very warmly welcomed by our english friends in wonderful Lotus atmosphere. After having the opportunity to visit the assembly area in the factory line, we took part of the unveiling of the new Lotus Evora, done by the Geely Chairman Mr. Feng Qingfeng, the new owners of Lotus.
Clive Chapman joined the fest together with his mother Hazel Chapman, Wife of Colin Chapman, founder of Lotus. Clive Capman’s Classic Team Lotus showed precious Formula One Cars, starting with the Jim Clark’s Racing Car up to the “Camel-Car”.
A special parade called “One of a kind” showed all Lotus Cars through the 70 years, and finally there was the world record attempt to bring mostly all english (and more) Lotus to the racing circuit in Hethel.
Thank you very much for your efforts- we had an unforgettable, great day!
