We are looking at organising a visit to both the Lotus factory and the Classic Team Lotus facility at Hethel. To avoid disappointment, we need to move forward on this proposal now if there is enough commitment from the membership.
Due to other race events that Classic team Lotus are involved with it would be most beneficial to visit when there is the maximum number of cars on display. The date will be Tuesday 22nd August 2023 for which there are a limited number of places available.
FACTORY TOURS run from 10:00 to 12:00 or 14:00 to 16:00 at £95 per person with a maximum of 8 people per tour
HERITAGE TOURS run from 10:00 to 13:00 or 14:00 to 17:00 at £140 per person with a maximum of 8 people per tour
The combined cost amounts to £235 per person.
Please visit the Lotus website and note the Terms & Conditions https://www.lotuscars.com/en-GB/factory-tours the facilities are disability accessible.
Assuming that we would prefer to combine both tours to make a full day of it, it would be better to take the factory tour before the heritage tour, giving everyone a 2-hour lunch break. If it suits, we could arrange lunch nearby at The Bird in Hand at Wreningham. For details, please visit; - https://www.thebih.co.uk/
