Lotus 60th Anniversary

Post  Trigger on Mon Jul 28, 2008 11:49 pm

60 years of world class innovation from Britain's finest sports car manufacturer.

In this its 60th year, Group Lotus plc is taking the ‘diamond’ element of their anniversary to heart and is celebrating in style. A variety of high profile events have been planned for 2008 that will pay homage to the heritage of the marque and look forward to the future of the international brand. The pinnacle of the campaign is a landmark event held at the Lotus Headquarters in Hethel, England on 14th September 2008 and will be opened by Hazel and Clive Chapman.

Lotus has a history of holding fantastic public events and the 60th Birthday Party will follow this vein. Over 15,000 visitors are expected and will be a fun-filled day that all the family can enjoy.

It was in 1948 that Colin Chapman built his first racecar. A pioneer, his breakthrough engineering firmly established him as one of the greatest automotive engineers of the 20th century. Chapman’s theory of “performance through lightweight” formed the foundation of one of the most successful racing teams to date and is embedded in the Lotus philosophy.

Group Lotus Plc CEO Mike Kimberley speaks passionately about celebrating Lotus milestone, “This is a great opportunity to celebrate the past and look forward to both a very special year for Lotus and a fantastic future. It’s important to us to celebrate the spirit of Lotus and we invite everyone to our headquarters to meet our people, our staff and our fans, and see us moving forwards. In 2008 an all new car will be unveiled at the London Motorshow and an impressive global expansion programme is planned for our high tech Lotus Engineering Consultancy, so there’s an exciting energy at Lotus that we want to share with our wider communities.”

An invitation is extended to all to join Lotus on 14th September 2008 for a day’s celebrations and with it the chance to experience the majesty of the marque and be part of Lotus’ tomorrow.

The main operating subsidiary of Group Lotus plc is Lotus Cars Ltd, which has two operating divisions – Lotus Engineering and Lotus Cars. Lotus Engineering is an internationally recognised automotive engineering consultancy based in Norfolk, UK. Its global facilities include those in Michigan, USA and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and offices in Germany and China. Lotus Engineering provides comprehensive and versatile consultancy services to many of the world’s OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, offering a full engineering service from initial concept and project design through development and integration of the complete vehicle to meet all worldwide markets and customers to full production. This includes third party ‘niche vehicle’ engineering and manufacture worldwide. Lotus Cars builds and sells Lotus sports cars, Elise, Exige and Europa for global sale.

We'll be going, but not camping ! Too cold for that in September. Staying at the Holiday Inn, Carrow Road.

There was supposed to be a treasure hunt (un official) or something on the Saturday, but now it seems that isn't happening Sad

I don't think Lotus are doing anything on Saturday (except the BBQ), anything else will be unofficial, so need to keep our eyes on the various websites.

Tash and I have had a chat but I don't know if we're going to have the time to make it. I have a Karate Seminar on and Tash is likely to be bogged down at Uni. Wish it was next year really ... are you planning on coming to any other events this year? I will be at the NEC in November with my car on the LDC stand ... Very Happy

There is a quick guide here so just get yourself a free account on photobucket or like, and copy either the URL link into the image icon on the bar above the post or insert the IMG link directly into the post.

I have been looking at the photos that msn have posted and it looks great ... would have loved to have been there to see the production line and the Evora story. Am on the case of planning for the NEC though lol. Not going to miss this one.
