The girl behind the badge Elisa Artioli and the Lotus Elise

• Elisa Artioli returns to Lotus 22 years after launch of Elise
• Lotus Elise named after Elisa
• Surprise reunion with the first ever production line built Lotus Elise
• Lotus visit includes her first-ever track laps in a Lotus
Reunited with the iconic car that bears her name, Elisa Artioli paid tribute to one of the most
renowned and lightweight sports cars ever made, the Lotus Elise, and drove her first ever laps of
the Hethel test track.
Returning to the home of Lotus in Hethel, Elisa was reunited with the second Elise ever built, and
the first built down the production line, a car with which she was photographed 1996. As well as the
surprise reunion with the Elise, she took to the famous Hethel test track for a series of laps behind
the wheel in a Lotus Exige Sport 410 and Evora GT410 Sport.
The granddaughter of Lotus’ then Chairman, Romano Artioli, Elisa was the original inspiration for
the car’s name, and was present for its launch in 1995.

  • Is it still AD07 and AD08 ?

    Hi all its a simple  question. Time for new rubber all round so are we still fitting standard size and Yokohama AD07 on the front and AD08 on the rear? The 175 on the front are a bit hard to get hold of in the correct size for some reason. Is there anything better out there now for the same sort of price, grip and wearability? Thanks

    LitP 2019 help

    Hi folks It's that time of year again when we start planning Lotus in the Peak, and as usual we need volunteers - even more so this year because three key members of our team Phil, Jan and Laura Stone have decided to take a well-earned break. If you think you might like to help can I ask you to stick your name down on here or if you would prefer pm me please. As usual we need run group leaders and there are various other bits and pieces we could use help with but right now we have an urgent need for a social media manager - someone that can regularly add content to the LitP facebook page amongst other things. Could that be you? All volunteers will receive, as ever, much MLOC kudos and maybe even an LitP polo shirt!   Thanks   Dean, Dunc, Ray and the LitP team

    Lotus in the Peak - kids?

    Hi guys After getting my car back on the road last year I'm hoping to attend a few events this year (otherwise it won't get used yet again).  I'm seriously considering coming to Lotus in the Peak, but if I did I'd probably want to bring my 6 year old son and give my wife the weekend to herself.  Is this possible or is it not really for kids?  Does anybody else come with a small navigator?  Daniel loves riding in the Elise and would really enjoy being out and about with the big boys and their fancy cars. If it's not advised then no worries, but I thought I'd check! thanks Graham

    Winter work.

    Spent a fun few hours in the garage today. I dropped the rear clam off, changed the cam belt and retimed the cams. It looks like my crank seal is weeping as well, deep joy. I have still got to change the hand brake cable, sort out the alarm and oil and filter change. What are the rest of you up to this winter

    De cat or Not

    Morning all, I’m looking for some advise on what to do regards putting a de cat pipe on my 2006 111r. Currently it has the 2bular 6” back box on it with the TRD filter. How will the De cat effect the car. Will I see a drop or increase in performance ? Will it be to load ? Or should I just leave it as it is now? Thanks  Nathan
