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. 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!
Simply Japanese. National Motor Museum Beaulieu. I haven’t been in this place for at least two years. Well, it was time to repair this mistake and have chosen to come to Simply Japanese meeting last week. I took my TypeR for a little trip and arrived to New Forest early morning, well before 9AM, moments before all car clubs were started arriving. I hate queues. As usually, there was a plenty of cars but a few were more than exotic, like ’88 Toyota Celica Supra. It is first time I saw an almost 30 years old car looking better than new. Amazing machine and owner apparently has in his garage more beauties like this one. Very interesting. I will let photos do the talking! Enjoy.
Lotus Family, Our Family. We are just a one big family. Fast and beautiful cars, great people you can always rely on and more fun you can ever imagine. That’s what makes Lotus Car owners one of the most amazing car communities in the world. And I’ve seen many different ones, none can compare to this one, and I’m sure it’s the same outside of UK! So there you go, our “family photo” during TLF International Lotus Day at Brooklands Museum. One of the biggest Lotus enthusiast events in the UK and still growing! 150 cars last year, now more than 200 and we are aiming for 300 next year. Hope to see you there next year! Thanks! ORDER PRINT FOR YOUR WALL! If you would like to order print of this photo, please contact me. Cost of A2 format (on black matt or gloss photo paper) is £50 and includes delivery within UK Mainland.

Morgan & Lotus. Bell & Colvill Circuit Club Trackdays are not only focused around cars, track, speed, corners. Quite often they are playing a part in our social live. Chance to meet new people, exchange experience, have a ride in somebody’s car. Experience is everything and learning is really important part of the day. Ultimately cars play most important part of the day and connect everybody into a group of friends. You must be a friend with somebody to trust him on a track, right? :) Guys from Bell & Colvill mixed two different cars – Lotus and Morgan. Both fast and both great to drive in a sunny day on the legendary circuit – Goodwood. Great day and a lot of fun. If you were participating in this event and you would like some high-res photos, please shoot me an email. If you don’t see your car here, that does not mean I don’t have any photos of it. Just drop me a message and tell me what I’m looking for. Big thanks to Aksela Photography for surviving with me the whole day ;)
Lotus Race Day Snetterton. Lotus Cup & Elise Trophy I wasn’t happy that I had to wake up around 5AM, but it was worth it. A cold, rainy morning turned into cloudy and windy afternoon, still cold though. We started with Lotus Cup series practice session, still on wet track, few races of Lotus Cup UK Speed Championship, mixed with Elise Trophy and some other random track activities. It was a really busy day and I had to be in a lot of places at the same time, hoping for some action and nice shots. I’ve got plenty of pictures from the event and a lot from of the racing cars on track too, but this gallery supposed to focus on race day that is usually not shown. I hope you like :) If you were participating on any races and Lotus Race Day at Snetterton and you would like some high-res photos, please shoot me an email. If you don’t see your car here, that does not mean I don’t have any photos of it. Just drop me a message and tell me what I’m looking for.
For the love of Alfa. Alfa Romeo. It was a really lovely day at Beaulieu, National Motor Museum. Simply Alfa meeting brought a lot of italian cars in different shapes, age and probably all possible colours – all loved by their owners ;) I thought to share some pictures from this meeting as I often do with snapshots from Lotus meetings. So there you go! Enjoy.
Rendezvous of Supercars. Salon Privé London. Ferrari, Morgan, Lamborghini, Caterham, Lotus, Overfinch, Mustang, Maserati, Aston Martin, Porsche, RUF, Jaguar, Koenigsegg, McLaren, Rolls-Royce, BMW, Pagani, Bentley, Bugatti, Spyker… You name it. This was truly amazing day with a lot of classics, supercars, hipercars and even a little bit of luxury. Salon Privé is a professional, manufacturer-supported event where carefully selected marques from around the world meet to display their very latest models openly on the Syon House lawns. I had a chance to spend there a whole day during The British Supercar Show and surprisingly we had no rain (my bad luck did not mess up this great event) ;) Plenty of fun and it’s always nice to see polished to perfection beauties, some of the rarest cars in the world, all in one place posing in front of your camera. Perfect day and I could not imagine a nicer start of my weekend. Special thanks to The Lotus Forums and Bell and Colvill
