Silverstone Pictures

Postby Specky » Sun 19.04.2009, 22:27

The final part of the "Club Lotus show" was the racing, this all happened at Silverstone...

The reason...the MSA wouldn't grant a license to Donny due to the 2010 grand prix improvements... :(

So here's a few pics......... and see if you can spot steve williams

and that Europa was something else, I guess it'll be on TV sometime...

Good photos - do you have any pics/info on the Europa - we missed Race 1 but heard something about a Europa winning? Managed to miss Steve Williams as well - I'm sure his Elise used to be orange? We had great trackside views of the races - it was a brilliant end to the weekend.
Regards

I only have one of the Europa, but it's at the start of the race...

I have heard a rumour that the Europa was allowed to enter this season because it's basically an elise, it was funny seeing it hammering and even lapping 211's and exiges

I don't know how many cars Steve had there, the black one wasn't his, some one need some advice really desperatly 10 mins before race two..

I think you'll find it's a similar situation to PM and his hill climb challenge series.
All the cars that compete carry his logo as a form of advertisement/sponsorship, I guess.
What do you think?

I think you're spot Sy...

I didn't reconise any of his cars either, and he wasn't working either per se

Steve Williams is not racing this year. In his own words, i cant be arsed. He is preparing a couple though. No 99 the one he is standing behind is James Knights. He is also preparing a 211 i believe.
2 Lotus and ones got to go :-(
