Lotus Cup Europe 2015. Magny-Cours Gp

Reigning Lotus Cup Europe Champion Jérémy Lourenço followed up his maiden overall win at Dijon- Prenois with a double victory at Magny-Cours this weekend in rounds five and six of the 2015 championship.

Reigning Lotus Cup Europe Champion Jérémy Lourenço followed up his maiden overall win at Dijon-Prenois with a double victory at Magny-Cours this weekend (30/31 May) in rounds five and six of the 2015 championship. Meanwhile another dominant performance in the Production class has allowed John Rasse to stretch his title lead.

Lourenço qualified on pole position at the former French Grand Prix venue, but was passed by teammate and fellow front row starter Xavier Georges as the opening race got underway. The Exige V6 pair escaped the clutches of Greg Rasse's Evora as they fought their own battle, then Lourenco forced his way into the lead with just a few laps remaining to take the chequered flag.

In the second race, Lourenço sailed into a lead that he would not relinquish, whilst Georges fought another battle that he would eventually lose, with Greg Rasse passing at mid-distance. However the Belgian was unable to catch the leader and trailed home two seconds in arrears.

A strong performance in qualifying helped Christophe Lisandre to a brace of 2-Eleven class victories, with Nicolas Ferrer achieving a similar feat in the Open class to take the first encounter, before back row starter David Harvey claimed the honours second time out.

John Rasse's Production class double keeps him ahead of the rest in the title race, and it was a similar story on track, with the Belgian lapping several seconds clear of his opposition. Thierry Hedoin was second both times, with Philippe VanPevenaeyge and Sven Pettersson sharing the final podium places.

The next Lotus Cup Europe rounds will take place at Spa-Francorchamps on 10/11 July.

  • 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

    Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    So after 12 years of Elise and exige ownership , and stretching my man maths to the limit I have been looking at a couple of cars to consider replacing the exige and boxster S with in the spring. It would be pretty rarified air for me and car price reflects keeping some cash back for service, maintainance and upgrades.  i don't have deep pockets to buy new but love the idea of owning both of these cars. Pluses and minuses to both I guess, so figured I would ask the MLOC massive which way they would go, and crucially any experiences with either car.  Couple of links below to spec and price I would consider. But not specifically these exact cars. https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/audi/r8/audi-r8-4-2-fsi-quattro-2dr/9166495 https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/aston-martin/v8-vantage-coupe/aston-martin-vantage-vh2-v8-2006/9051068 So if you could, would you, and if you would, which one ??, oh and which will be worth most in 12 years time so I can buy a mclaren !!

    S1 Elise, can I use 205/45 R16 87W on the rear?

    I've been offered some wheels and tyres from a friend, used but with good tread on them. Toyo Proxes T1-R
    185/55 R15 82V
    205/45 R16 87W I don't really understand tyre sizes and what's OK/not to play with. I know the rears _should_ be 205/50 R16 not 205/45. What are the issues with using these sizes? Thanks

    New car at last S190 Pics updated

    Well it looks like after a year away from cars, DIY and building work at home, and of course a new addition to the family it looks like Friday I'll be back behind a lotus wheel.    Train tickets booked, just hope it's not a return.

    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
