After the success of the Team Lotus 50th anniversary celebrations at Hethel in July, I have finished this 30x20in acrylic painting entitled 'Team Lotus 50' which has been commissioned to commemorate the forthcoming Classic Team Lotus 50th event at Motegi in Japan. I thought you might like to see it!
Despite awful weather at Hethel, over 10,000 people turned out to see the demonstrations of over 20 Lotus F1 cars along with F2, sports, FJ etc. A further 20 or so racing cars were on static display with many more road going Lotus types from the various car clubs. It was reputedly the biggest ever gathering of Lotus competiton cars. Many of the cars in the CTL collection are being shipped over to Japan to participate.
