Goodwood 2018 was a special year for many reasons, the genesis of Bond Exige concept, the launch of Lotus Type 49 and 79 limited editions, and most importantly Lotus were back in a big way!
Those that have seen my car may think it is a bit of a show pony, but I had always intended to take my car on track. You can’t get the full Lotus experience driving on public roads, so where to start?
Being completely new to Lotus, I wanted to meet other enthusiastic owners. A great way to meet lots of owners is to join a club and Lotus has several from which to choose.
I previously owned a gun metal grey Aston Martin Vantage, a colour that beautifully shows the perfect contours of the car, but unfortunately showed every stone chip and light swirl mark.
The celebration of Lotus at 70 was a fantastic event and one everyone who attended will remember. Launched online it was sold out almost immediately and everyone on social media was buzzing about ticket availability.
