National Club Event: Car Control Clinic Day

Date: May 4, 2019

Location: Lakeville, CT

Description:

The weather is warming up, the salt is just about off the roads and you are feeling that need to get out and drive your Lotus!
If you've ever wanted to exercise your Lotus in a way you can't on the street, but don't want to take it on a full-blown race track, this car control clinic is for you.

Lotus, Ltd. is hosting a Car Control Clinic on May 4, 2019 at Lime Rock Park in Northwest Connecticut. The car control clinic is held on the two, 1/3-mile "autocross" tracks located in the infield parking area. This low-speed, safe event is intended to allow you to explore dynamic changes in your vehicle's handling that you really don't and shouldn't want to feel on the street. However, if you do, you'll be glad you attended this event! In other words, these courses are designed to upset your car by promoting understeer and oversteer. But let's be honest, it's just a blast to toss your car around without worry, in an environment that encourages that kind of behavior while actually teaching you something!

Due to the popularity of last year's event, this year we will offer both a morning and an afternoon session. Each will be limited to only 18 drivers in order to maximize drive time! Each session will be divided into two groups and each will have the chance to drive the two tracks independently. We will finish the session as a single group and combine the two tracks! To add to the "Car Control" aspect, instructors will ride along with you providing real-time input on how to negotiate the corners. If you've been hesitant to try a full-on D.E., this is the perfect gateway as all of the concepts you'll be taught apply.
The Car Control Clinic is an informal driving event; you can drive whatever type of vehicle you like (preferably a Lotus). We follow SCCA Autocross rules which require a Snell rated SA or M 2010 helmet. If you don't have one or yours is expired, loaners will be available. Appropriate closed toed, rubber soled shoes are also required.

Come early for the afternoon session or stay later for the morning session to join in our group photo and watch the vintage racing taking place on the main track. Lime Rock Park is a park, so there are no grandstands. Bring your family, some chairs and a picnic and enjoy the day! The paddock concession stand will also be open for breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

For registration, pricing, and more details on times, go to Club Registration Website log in and search for "Lotus" to find the Car Control Clinic plus all the other Lotus, Ltd. driving events. If you don't already have a free clubregistration.net account, it's simple to create on the website.

National Club Event: Performance Driver Education Program

Date: June 19, 2019

Location: Watkins Glen, New York

Description: What better way to explore the handling of your Lotus but on one of North America's premier road courses.The intent of the Lotus, Ltd./MBCA's Driver Education program is to teach you the skills to handle your car better. Besides having plain old fun with your car, the techniques you'll learn will make you a safer, more aware driver on the street! Afraid to take your car on the race track because it might get damaged? That's understandable, it can happen. However, it can also happen on the street. The race track is a controlled environment in which you have far more freedom to make a "mistake" than on the street. (But if you really want your car protected, read about optional track insurance coverage below) If you are a novice driver, during our High Performance Driver Education Day, you will have a seasoned instructor with you at all times to guide and teach you at a pace with which you are comfortable. There is no pressure and no trophies at a Driver Education day. It's all about safety, fun, and car control! Yes, in that order.
