1 Review for Classic Team Lotus

The Jim Clark connection

We’ve visited Classic Team Lotus a few times, usually coupled with open days at the factory, the launch of the Evora, and when we’ve done our own driving experience on the Lotus Test Track. While Classic Team Lotus is a modern operation the history is palpable, and is brought to life by the amazing Bob Dance (aged 83), who has some great stories from his early days with Clive Chapman and Jim Clark. We guarantee you can’t ask him a question he hasn’t answered a hundred times before, and it’s clear after all this time how much he loves his job and his life. For a taste of what you can expect have a look at Motorsport Magazine article: https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/archive/article/august-2015/86/lunch-team-lotus-mechanics. CTL recently took on a new apprentice, and we know the tutor who, after being given the tour with his young charge just said, “I want a job there”. Who wouldn’t?!! Great place to visit. Highly recommended.
