The annual end-of-season Lotus endurance race took on a new
format in 2012, with the 1000km distance replaced by a 6-hour time
limit. With a midday start time more night running is guaranteed,
which makes for a spectacular sight as headlights lead the way and
the cars are lit by flaming exhausts and glowing brake discs.
The two classes for Lotus Cup and Elise Trophy cars provide close
action with pitstops for fuel, tyres and driver changes adding to
the excitement. The last two events have been punctuated by high
drama, so expect more of the same with the new format!
