The Storm Chaser. Lotus Evora GT430.
The Storm Chaser. Lotus Evora GT430. The real storm in pure shape. Mean, fast and loud. Only the good stuff. Lotus Evora GT430 one of sixty produced. Lotus did an amazing job with this car and build quality is really good, definitely a move in the right direction. We had an amazing day together, just two of us and the whole place for ourselves. I took a lot of pictures of this car and it joined to my collection of unique Evora GT350s (GTEs). I’ve got already more plans for photos of GT430 models in different colours and I will definitely share these with it’s time. Massive thanks to Lotus Silverstone for supplying the car, great hospitality and all their help throughout the day. I’m sure we will do a little bit more collaboration like this in future. You know, Exige Cup430 looks like a good candidate… Actually, we already had the photoshoot with an awesome yellow ‘xige. Watch out this space for photos!

Before & After. Lotus Type-59.
Before & After. Lotus Type-59. The legendary car is back where it belongs to – Brands Hatch Circuit. I like to share my before & after shots and I love to see them from other photographers. You can discover how an average photo can turn into epic. In some other cases, how epic a shot shot is at time of taking, before any post-processing. At the end, there is always something new you can learn from them. You can see the whole gallery from this session here: James Hunt is back at Brands Hatch. Lotus Type-59. This particular picture was also featured back in 2016 in I SHOT IT competition and received Mark of Excellence.
Not an Evora you know. Stratton GT.
Not an Evora you know. Stratton GT. I’m sure you heard about a Lotus Evora GTE (GT350 in fact). A limited run of 20 supercars sold all over the world and only six in the UK. I’m sure you noticed already that Stratton GT looks like one of the GTEs but that’s where similarities end. Guys at Stratton Motorsport decided to take the original Evora S and fit full body kit, put it on a diet, expand stable of horses under the hood and replace a half of the interior with carbon. As a result, you get an Evora Stratton GT, more powerful than any of the previous ones and still with a manual gearbox – the way a sports car meant to be! One beautiful morning at Brands Hatch, I had a chance to take this amazing car for a photoshoot. I hope you like the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.        
Lotus Festival 2017. Brands Hatch.
Lotus Festival 2017. Brands Hatch. Amazing day at Lotus Festival this year. A lot of great cars – new, old, classics – any flavour you like, and in any colour! It was great to catch up with old friends and meet some new. Endless discussions about cars with their enthusiastic owners, is something I always enjoy. That’s the spirit of the Lotus community. Guys at The Lotus Forums did a great job by putting together one of the biggest Lotus gatherings in the world. Can’t wait to come back to Brands Hatch Racing Circuit next year!

One Sunday Morning. Lotus Exige S.
One Sunday Morning. Lotus Exige S.   It was one of those nice mornings, cold winter mornings with another Lotus. I saw this car first time at few years ago at B&C and I fell in love with white-red combo. I was surprirsed to see it in hands of ex-Evora owner. Checkout the video from this photoshoot!

The Making of Lotus Exige S Rigshot Timelapse
The Making of Lotus Exige S Rigshot Timelapse I’ve managed to record our efforts to create this rigshot of Lotus Exige S V6. We spent whole morning taking photos of this car but I totally forgot about my second camera… that’s the only thing I can share with you from “behind the scenes”. Whole process took about 20 minutes but I’ve managed to cut it down to reasonable, and not that boring, 1 minute. This is just a shot from nen angle but I’ve got more coming up! Lovely car, lovely location and a lot of fun, as always. Share, Like, Enjoy! Final image
James Hunt is back at Brands Hatch. Lotus Type-59.
James Hunt is back at Brands Hatch. Lotus Type-59. “James Hunt won several races in his Molyslip Lotus 59, including coming 2nd in heat 1 and winning heat 2 at Brands Hatch 17th July 1970.” – After 46 years, his car is now back at this legendary circuit racing again! We had many beautiful cars at this year’s Lotus Festival and James’ Hunt car was one of them. Early Sunday morning we took it out from pit garages and take some legendary pictures, including a re-production of a photo taken before the race in 1970. Big thanks to Andy ‘Bibs’ Betts and Arnold Restoration Ltd.
It’s small, it’s cute, it’s fast, it’s mean. Lotus Elise Cup 250.
It’s small, it’s cute, it’s fast, it’s mean. Lotus Elise Cup 250. That’s all a good car should have. Great road car to enjoy a journey, perfect track car to leave behind most of competitors. Seriously, it is just slightly improved Cup 220 ;) I just had another chance to take this car for photos and drive around Lotus Test Track in Hethel, thanks to The Lotus Forums.
Before & After. Lotus Evora GTE
Lotus Evora GTE (GT350) Lotus Evora GTE (GT350) #2 I had a chance to take for some photos before it went to the first owner. I did not expect a farm can be a nice location for such type of car, but final results are pretty damn good. I said this many times, but I will say it one more time: This is how Evora should look like from the very beginning, shame they made only 20 of this model.
