North London Lotus Tour - Sunday 13th April 2014
Wed 19 Feb 2014
On Sunday 13th April 2014 the 750 Motor Club will be running a tour of the historic Lotus/750 sites in North London and Hertfordshire.
The tour will start at the Alexandra Palace with an 11.00 am departure. The first stop will be Tottenham Lane, site of the first Lotus factory. From Tottenham we will go on to Edmonton to see where Edmonton Tool and Die, Williams and Pritchard, Progress Chassis and Cosworth were based in Britain’s first “motor racing valley” just off the North Circular.
After Edmonton we travel to Delamare Rd, Cheshunt, home of Team Lotus, Lotus Components and Lotus Cars form 1959 to 1966. We should be able to park for a photo shoot between the two Lotus buildings, courtesy of the current occupants – the Monster Gym.
From Cheshunt we will drive through the Hertfordshire countryside to Panshanger Airfield for afternoon tea and the opportunity to line up the cars for a display. Panshanger was the site of the Lotus service centre and where Colin Chapman and Jim Clark kept their planes so it is an appropriate location to end the tour
We are keen to have historic Lotus cars on the tour so if you own a Seven, Eleven, Elite or Elan you can “bring it home” to Cheshunt
The cost of the tour will be £20 pp. including lunch and a souvenir illustrated route guide.
