Home heroes Lotus to get Snetterton season underway

Thursday, February 04 2016

Norfolk's legendary Lotus marque will star on the superfast Snetterton 200 circuit this March (19), kicking off the circuit's 2016 season in style.

A triple-helping of competition from the famous racing and sportscar stable includes the Lotus Cup championship, which features the company's recent output from V6 Exiges and 2-Elevens to the Elise. The race will be the centrepiece of the day and includes pitstops for driver changes, adding to the drama.

Breathless entertainment is the order of the day in the Elise Trophy, in which drivers compete in two 20-minute races, which also feature reverse-top-ten grids and thrilling battles throughout the field. The day will also include the Lotus Cup UK Speed Championship, a sprint competition where drivers compete against the clock on the track.

Racing won't just be limited to Lotuses, and the event also includes the Monoposto championship, where huge grids of single-seaters will battle on the long straights and fast corners of the 200 layout. There will also be an MSVR Allcomers race, with a wide variety of machinery expected to be on show.

Tickets for the MSVR Club Car Championships at Snetterton on 19 March are available online for £10, with free entry for under-13s. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
