Welcome to a new chapter in your Lotus ownership. As well as meeting like-minded Lotus enthusiasts, Lotus Drivers Club members enjoy a wide range of benefits. These include a subscription to the clubs Chicane magazine, exclusive national and local events, access to technical help and advice, track days and driving adventures. The clubs philosophy is embedded in our name - to get members and enthusiasts out and driving their Lotus at every opportunity.
The club has been successfully attending track day events for over 40 years. In the last few years these have included Pembrey, Anglesey, Curborough, Castle Coombe, Donington, Bruntingthorpe and Brands Hatch.
The Lotus Drivers Club is proud to be a member of the MSA. The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is recognised as the sole motor sport governing body for the United Kingdom by the world governing body, the FIA.
As a consequence of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, will now be postponed to 26-28 March 2021.
Everyone involved in putting the show together is extremely disappointed that the ultimate restoration experience will not be brought to the community this year. However, the health and well-being of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is of the upmost importance. With the government’s roadmap suggesting that restrictions on movement will still be in place for some time, it is therefore the right decision for us to cease planning for an event of this size and importance in August.
We will now be putting all our efforts into delivering an extra special restoration show in 2021 and a fantastic meeting of the community for our flagship event, the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, in November. Clarion Events is working with other event organisers, venues and government to develop guidelines on how to deliver the best versions of our events while ensuring the health and safety of all involved. We will update you further on the measures we are putting in place in due course.

We promised you an update before the end of May… and it is with a heavy heart that we bring you news that the 2020 Silverstone Classic will not be going ahead.
Following the latest Government advice, we have reached the inevitable conclusion that we will need to cancel this year’s event. Given the current circumstances and the outlook on timescales, a postponed event – which was our original back-up plan – in a way that enables us to run the Classic in the manner that you know and love isn’t a feasible option. Our priority at all times is the safety and wellbeing of those attending our events as well as our own team and we know that you’ll understand why this step has been necessary. Our heartfelt thanks must go to all of you for your patience throughout this period of uncertainty.
As an independent events company passionate about what we do, we are proud to have developed the Silverstone Classic into an internationally renowned historic motorsport festival enjoyed across generations of car enthusiasts, families, racing drivers, and petrolheads. In times of difficulty, communities tend to come together and we’re incredibly grateful for your continued support. It means a lot. All of you are what makes the event the success that it is and we hope to celebrate our 30th anniversary with you next year instead.
Anyone who has a ticket will have the option to roll their tickets over to the 2021 event or request a full refund. There are a number of measures we need to put in place first, but we will be back in touch with all ticket buyers in June with details of the next steps. In light of the current situation, we have a reduced team who are dealing with a high number of enquiries, so please do bear with us.
We’ll be in touch soon. In the meantime, and above all else, stay safe and healthy.
With our best wishes, The Silverstone Classic Team

Unfortuinately Javelin have now cancelled this trackday.
I believe that the Circuit is still open, but the TDO have not got everything they require in place yet. Real Shame.
Best look out for and book somewhere else.
Thanks Alan. It's good to see track events are beginning to reopen with the necessary precautions in place. I'm looking forward to helpfully being able to book something for the end of the summer. Maybe Hethel or Anglesey with LoT?
