Thousands attend Lotus Festival

wr11Last weekend’s Lotus Festival held at Snetterton in the UK was a mecca for all things Lotus, with thousands of people and all sorts of Lotus models both historic and modern in attendance.

Organised by the Lotus on Track Racing Drivers’ Club, the festival was supported by over ten different clubs and organisations and four different championships were run over the weekend – GT Cup, Toyo Tires Racing Saloons, Production BMW Championship and MSVR Sports and Sports Racing Series.

Grabbing headlines was the successful attempt to break the record for most Lotus cars in a parade at one time.

The new record of 436 cars is subject to official confirmation from Guinness World Records. Previously, the record was a parade of 313 Lotus cars, completed at the Brands Hatch race circuit in Kent in 2007.

As the Lotus Enthusiast staff are based in the United States and could not make it to the festival across the pond, we can only imagine what a sight the parade must have been to behold in person. Watch below as an Ice White Lotus Evora leads the cavalcade:

Classic Team Lotus brought a Lotus Type 79 to the festival, among other historic Lotus models. The Lotus Type 79 was the first F1 car to take full advantage of ground effects aerodynamics, which were first pioneered by its predecessor the Type 78.  Designed in late 1977, The Type 79 was also the first F1 car designed with computer design aids.

The Type 79 dominated the 1978 F1 season, securing the constructors’ championship to Lotus and the drivers’ championship to Team Lotus driver Mario Andretti.
