Classic Team Lotus Tour

Following the popularity of our sold out 2020 tours of the new Classic Team Lotus workshop and facilities in Hethel, we are excited to be able to offer members further organised tour dates in 2021. The exclusive 2-hour guided tour by Richard Parramint will take place on Saturday 16 October at a discounted cost of only £37 per person. A March tour date is to be confirmed in the coming months.

Places are strictly limited to 20 members per tour with the first tour starting at 11:00am and the second at 2:30pm. Classic Team Lotus have been working very hard to ensure that all tours comply with stringent Covid precautions to safeguard the health of all visitors and it is important that everyone complies with these rules.

For those who wish to make a weekend of the visit to Hethel, David Wenman, the clubs Area Organiser for East Anglia, has also organised a scenic drive on Sunday 17 October, along the Norfolk Coast.

For more information please email d.wenman@lotusdriversclub.org.uk

Event registration is charged per person.

Please be aware that due to current COVID-19 restrictions imposed on hotels and restaurants, places on this tour are limited and, as is Club policy, taken on a first come first served basis. Once places are fulfilled, we will run a reserve list to offer places should they become available and restrictions allow. Please continue to watch our website for updates for this and all our events.
