Joining the Lotus Drivers Club introduces you to a vibrant and thriving community that will elevate your ownership experience. Engage with members and enjoy a subscription to the Club's magazine, Chicane, and participate in national and local events, exhilarating track experiences and our popular driving adventures. The Club’s philosophy is embedded in our name.
A 12-month subscription for membership to the Lotus Drivers Club is £34.00. To this, an additional fee of £8 is added if the member is, or becomes, a resident outside the United Kingdom but still within a European Country. For members not in the United Kingdom or Europe, an additional fee of £13 is added. The Lotus Drivers Club welcomes all current or prospective owners and enthusiasts of all Lotus Cars and derivatives. These include but are not limited to Caterham, Westfield and VX220 cars.
When joining you will receive an introductory welcome pack containing the latest issue of Chicane, our members magazine, a 2024 wall calendar (limited availability) along with a welcome letter from the Club Chairman.
The A4 calendar includes provisional dates of all national Club events and area meetings to help you plan your year. We hope you will enjoy having the calendar and selected photos on your wall and we look forward to receiving entries for next year’s calendar.

Our well-supported members’ magazine Chicane is produced by a team of dedicated editors, writers and photographers.
