Lotus Cup Europe
Lotus Cup Europe is designed to offer Lotus owners the opportunity to experience some of the best race circuits in Europe with like-minded enthusiasts. It's aimed at both experienced racers as well as those wishing to compete for the first time.
Lotus Cup Europe is organised by LoTRDC in conjunction with MSVR and will be run as a championship for the first time in 2013. Sporting and technical regulations have been approved by the FIA to give Lotus Cup Europe the status of FIA International Series, joining a list that includes GP2 and DTM. The title will be contested between five classes, with the new Exige V6 Cup joining the Evora in the V6 Cup Class. The other classes remain as Exige Cup for four cylinder supercharged models, 2 Eleven, Production for normally-aspirated Elise and Exiges and Open for other models and modified vehicles.
In its 9th year in 2013, Lotus Cup Europe started in 2004 as a direct response to customer and Lotus Dealer interest in a 'fun' but professionally-run motorsport series in Europe. During that time it has attracted many competitors from all over Europe, a large number of whom have been new to car racing.
