All-new Digital Instrument Pack Creates the Perfect Lotus Track Day Tool

  • Lotus launches all-new ‘plug and play’ digital dashboard for enhanced track day experiences
  • Pre-loaded with circuit data from more than 4,000 race tracks around the world
  • GPS technology and lap performance indicators will help drivers deliver the perfect lap
  • Available for selected Lotus Elise and V6 Exige models, priced £1,470
  • Numerous other aftersales packages now on offer through Lotus retailers

(Hethel, UK – 14 July 2020) – Lotus has launched an all-new ‘plug and play’ Digital Instrument Pack that’s pre-loaded with details of more than 4,000 race tracks from across the world.

The perfect illustration of how Lotus is always ‘For The Drivers’, the digital dashboard features integrated GPS technology and lap performance indicators, allowing track day fans to measure, display and record data to perfect their racing lines and lap times.

Designed for Lotus Elise and V6 Exige models built from 2008 onwards, the system’s software comes pre-loaded with details of 4,127 race tracks and automatically recognises when drivers are near a circuit. Drivers can download the start/finish line co-ordinates so they can calculate lap times, then analyse their performance in real time on the digital display or later by downloading data to a laptop.

A unique Lotus-branded start-up screen further enhances the experience, and users can also customise the display of the high-contrast six-inch TFT screen to suit their needs. The system even features a camera input, allowing drivers add a portable action camera to capture the action from each exhilarating lap.

Chris Hinks, Aftersales Director, Lotus, said the Digital Instrument Pack is designed for drivers who want to take their Lotus track day experience to the next level. He commented: “We know our customers appreciate the motorsport heritage of Lotus cars and love to use their own vehicles on track days. Integrating a Digital Instrument Pack into an Elise or Exige is only going to enhance that experience.”

The Digital Instrument Pack has been carefully designed to fit seamlessly into the Elise or Exige dashboard, replacing the original factory-fit instrumentation. It is available in international markets where the two cars are sold. At UK Lotus retailers it is priced £1,470 including VAT and a fitting service is available at an extra cost. When fitted by a Lotus retailer the pack is covered by a two-year warranty. Prices in other markets will vary.

Lotus owners can now also take advantage of a number of other aftersales packages, including fixed price scheduled servicing and on brakes and clutches. All parts purchased and fitted by an authorised Lotus retailer are now covered by a 24-month / unlimited mileage parts warranty.

  • Saturday drive out and swim

    Great drive out to Hathersage this morning for a swim in the open air pool which is fab, heated to 28deg all year. First proper drive out on quiet roads after changing squealing 2 piece disks for EBC turbos so I could properly enjoy the car. What a machine 😍💨

    One off track day insurance Donington 21st Sept

    Evening all . i am doing a track day at Donington on Monday and have discovered I dropped track insurance off my policy in 2018 as I hadn’t done 1 the previous year . My annual policy is £296 this year so I was a little shocked to find Adrian  flux could only offer me a 1 day policy at £213 for 1 DAY !. can anyone recommend a better priced company to cover me ?? And almost as importantly is anyone else here booked for Monday, would be nice to see some familiar faces.

    The Wait is Excruciating...

    I posted here back in July - placed a factory order for an Elise 220 (first time Lotus owner, dream car!) which was originally due this week, but it got delayed back to mid-October! Oakmere updated me with the chassis number a couple of weeks ago and it was in "paint" at that stage. Based on another member's reply to my other thread I had asked if they could get some photo's of it being built, but Lotus haven't sent any over yet. What's 5 more weeks right?.... 😩

    New member 👋👋

    Hi all, Just been messaging Scott Scotty on Instagram and joined up. I’m based in Sheffield, any locals? I’ve recently jumped into my Club Racer finally getting a proper Lotus having had a VX220 when I was 23 back in the day!  Just treated myself to a valved 2bular system...it’s a thing of beauty to hear! 😂 Be delighted to join you on some runs out and meet you all soon Cheers Matt

    Bye for now

    My last Lotus went at the weekend and it feels like the end of an era. Ten years ish continuous ownership and probably 15 years since I bought my first. They have been very good to me over the years but strangely I haven’t missed one of them yet. I’m sure I’ll be back at some point down the line but I have other priorities in my life at the mo. All the best to you all and I’m sure our paths will cross sooner or later.
