Tyres↑Top

Avon ZZR

We strongly recommend all competitors to ‘scrub’ new tyres in. This helps increase a tyre life and also its consistency over long runs.
– More information on Avons Scrubbing in procedure.

Minimum cold starting pressure: 22psi (This is the pressure the tyre is set to prior to a session/ heat cycle). Running any lower than this could potentially damage the tyres sidewall construction. Avon Motorsport does not recommend specific starting pressures. This is due to the variables involved (i.e. track conditions, track and ambient temperatures, circuit layout, session length, driving characteristics).

Target hot pressure: 30psi (This is the optimum pressure for the tyre to be run at whilst at operating temperature). To obtain this target hot pressure there may be a requirement to start each tyre at different cold starting pressures; this is due to each tyre inevitably working at different levels. The cold starting pressure required to achieve the target hot pressure will depend on the variables stated above.

Racing a Lotus in 2017Top

Lotus on Track has been at the heart of Lotus racing for many years now. In fact the Lotus on Track Elise Trophy and Lotus Cup UK grew from it’s organisation and members.

We hope that as a Lotus owner you would like to race a Lotus and with our own Lotus on Track Racing Drivers Club in Lotus Cup Europe, the World’s premier Lotus race championship and arguably one of the top championships of any marque. However, being an FIA backed championship some experience is required before taking the final step to LCE. For those in the UK who want to start out we have the Lotus Cup UK Speed Championship while there are many other club level championships for Lotus owners in the UK and around the World.

Lotus Cup UK Speed Championship – Is the perfect environment for Lotus owners to take their first steps into Motorsport, with drivers alone on the track and without the distraction of other cars, or the fear of contact, able to concentrate on their technique and speed. It appeals to both track day drivers, who are able to use their skills in a competitive environment, and complete novices, who can instantly compare their performances to the frontrunners.

Lotus Cup Europe – The World’s premier Lotus Championship. Fully authorised by the FIA and Group Lotus it’s the pinnacle of Lotus racing.

CSCC Modern Classics Series – designed for most production Sports and GT models produced upto the end of 1999. The race length is 40 minutes with a mandatory pitstop taking place between minutes 10 and 25. Entries can be a single driver, two driver team or even a two car/two driver team. Standard bodywork and engine type is required, so perfect for most Elise/Exige S1 running a K series. Race entries are between £325 and £385 in the UK, with 2 x 40 minute races at Spa for £575.

CSCC New Millennium Series – designed for post year 2000 production based cars (and their racing variants) and for cars that are deemed to be “in the spirit of the regulations”, for example older cars running non-standard aero or sequential gearboxes. The race length is again 40 minutes with a mandatory pitstop. Entries can be a single driver, two driver team or even a two car/two driver team. Standard engine type is required, but aftermarket aero is allowed (wings, diffusers etc.). Elise/Exige S1/S2 running a K series, S2 and S3 with Toyota power and Exige V6 are all welcomed. Race entries are between £325 and £385 in the UK, with 2 x 40 minute races at Spa for £575.

CSCC Meteor Suspension Open Series – Almost anything goes, the Meteor Suspension Open Series has just three main rules, no slicks (or racing wets), no singles seaters and no sports racers (Radical etc.). Perfect if you have an Audi/Honda/Duratec engine conversion or looking for a second race at a CSCC meeting. Runs to the familiar format of a 40 minute race with pit stop, for one or two drivers.

750 Motor Club – Roadsports – The Roadsports Series is for production cars, including all Lotus. Races are 45 minutes long including a pit stop. Roadsports is designed to offer competitors a great deal of freedom in tuning a performance sports or saloon car, whilst at the same time providing a framework to ensure the racing remains cost effective. Entry fees start at £255 for the series of six mini-endurance races, which will take place at major circuits such as Donington Park, Silverstone international and Snetterton 300.

750 Motor Club – Club Enduro – The Club Enduro Series is a brand new endurance racing series, but with a grid of production sports and saloon cars on a realistic budget. Races are 90-120 minutes long at the best circuits – including Spa in 2017! Teams can run as two car relay teams, or one car, with refuelling as required, no slicks are permitted but tyre choice is open to list 1a,1b,1c. Each round is priced at £595, offering an unrivalled amount of seat time for the costs involved.

Lotus Cup Eastern Europe – The perfect Lotus championship for anyone in Eastern Europe. First class organisation & events – runs to same regulations as Lotus Cup Europe.

Lotus Cup Italia – Single type Elise Cup PBR championship. Similar to an Elise Cup R but with modifications by PB Racing so all cars are the same providing fantastic racing.

Lotus Cup (UK) – A championship originally created and run by our own Lotus on Track Racing Drivers Club with endurance format races. LoTRDC sold the championship at the end of 2014 while it was thriving with packed grids, great media exposure including full TV coverage and lots of track time. Although the championship no longer offers endurance format races and has changed direction considerably it does offer an option for those who want to race in the UK with a Lotus in sprint format races. If you do contemplate it our advice is not to build a car until you are happy talk to ES Motorsport about renting a car for a round before committing.

MSVT Trackday Trophy – a race series from MSV, the owners of Brands Hatch, Snetterton and other circuits desgined specifically for trackday drivers and novice racers. Perfect for those wishing to start out racing a Lotus.

MSVT Trackday Championship – offers a competitive, yet fun and friendly, environment for production saloon, hatchback, and sports car racers to enjoy. Whether you’re a relative novice looking to progress into a well-supported championship environment for the first time, or you’re an established competitor looking for a new challenge, the TDC has plenty to offer. Each round consists of a 30minute qualifying session followed by a 45minute race.

Caterham Academy – Currently the most popular entry level race series for Lotus owners. The Elise Trophy used to be the only championship Lotus owners would consider to start racing in. However, since it’s change of ownership and direction the Caterham Academy has become the starting out point in the UK for those wishing to move into racing. The perfect environment for Lotus owners wishing to start racing and potentially move on to Lotus Cup Europe. Find out more. Available only to complete novices, it ensures a level playing field that guarantees all competitors have the same amount of experience
