Martin Brundle drives Evora at Lotus HQ

Martin Brundle, one of the biggest legends in British motorsport recently visited the Group Lotus UK headquarters, sampling a piece of Lotus heritage and driving the firm’s latest offering, the all new Lotus Evora.

Brundle called on Classic Team Lotus where Clive Chapman (son of Lotus’ founder Colin Chapman) showcased some of his father’s much loved Formula 1 projects. Brundle also toured the state of the art manufacturing facilities and sampled the Lotus Evora for the first time around the Lotus test track.

Dany Bahar, CEO of Group Lotus said: “It was an honour for Lotus to host Martin Brundle, one of the most respected and popular names in motor sport. It was an incredible opportunity to demonstrate our exciting array of vehicles and the work of our talented employees to one of the most esteemed analysts in the automotive arena and I am delighted with his positive responses.”

Brundle was joined by his son, Alex, one of the rising stars of the Formula Two Championship, proudly following in his father’s motor sport footsteps and dreaming of a future in Formula 1.

Martin Brundle enjoyed his visit to one of the world’s most iconic automotive marques, commenting: “I remember first visiting Hethel in the 1960s, when my father drove a Lotus Cortina. I am equally impressed now as I was then and as a Norfolk man, I am delighted Lotus is performing so well. I was pleased to see my old friend Gino Rosato and after hearing more about the future plans from Dany Bahar and his team, I am looking forward to the forthcoming products to come out of Hethel.”

Brundle was further impressed with the new Lotus Evora: “I was especially keen to drive the Evora after reading so many positive magazine reports. On a wet track, the cornering grip and particularly the braking performance impressed me. It’s a quality sports car.”
