With thanks to Martyn Smith, Marketing & Events Organiser, Grampian Transport Museum.
This Sunday 2nd August the Lotus Enthusiasts Group Scotland will be hosting “The Lotus Day” at the Grampian Transport Museum.
Now in its 4th year this popular event sees Lotus cars from all over Scotland in attendance.
50 years of Lotus cars will be on show, with examples from the early 1960’s up to the very latest production cars, capable of 0 – 60 mph times of less than 4 seconds and top speeds in excess of 170 mph!
The event has proved popular with museum visitors and club members alike, with club members given the unique opportunity not only to display their cars but also to take members of the public out for laps on the museum’s road circuit, between 2pm and 4pm.
In addition to the passenger rides there will also be a static display of some very rare cars including the first production Lotus Esprit and a Lotus Exige LF1, built to commemorate the 1st of 81 Formula 1 victories which was achieved by Sir Stirling Moss at Monaco in 1960.
Lotus is a marque synonymous with motor racing and their race pedigree can be seen clearly in the road cars they produce.
Admission to The Lotus Day is included in the museum’s standard admission – £9.50 for adults, £7.50 for concessions and 2 children are admitted FREE with every adult.
Preceding Lotus Day the museum will be treating visitors to a day of nostalgia on Thursday 30th July with a one-off 90’s Day – along with a soundtrack from the era, the museum will also be running 90’s themed quizzes for younger visitors to enjoy.
Visitors to 90’s day will also enjoy reduced admission, with adults just £2.80 or a family ticket, priced at just £5, admitting 2 adults and up to 4 children.
