Hi Everyone - Colin Smith here with an update for you on this event:

Please see below the latest joining instructions from Lotus for the Hethel 70th bash.  Please note, these are the instructions sent out to the club, who were allocated a small number of tickets but these and all 7,000 tickets have now been allocated by Lotus so, unfortunately, if you don't have a ticket you will not be admitted.  These instructions also apply to you if you have your own ticket.

If you do have your own ticket, the event starts at 10am but I expect cars will be admitted sooner than this (time is anyone's guess) because, as you can see from the events schedule below, track activity starts at 10:15am.
