I have done trackdays with LoT and can confirm they are very well organised and very much like C&L7C ones with no problem with driving standards , I havent had to worry as my car has a cage but below is from their T&C from the website

20. Lotus, VX220/Speedster, Alpine, Ferrari, McLaren & Porsche cars registered after 1995 do not require a roll-cage.

All other cars registered after 1995* plus ALL cars regardless of manufacturer registered before 1995 must have a full 6 point approved roll-cage.

All Caterham type vehicles must be fitted with an approved Roll Over Protection system(ROPs). In addition, all Caterham type vehicles must be fitted with a 6 point approved roll-cage at Brands Hatch GP, Bilster Berg, Dijon, Spa Francorchamps.

* An exemption may be given depending on the type of car & venue. Requests must be made in writing at least 48hrs before the event start.

Great! See you there! (Hopefully - I've got no engine, gearbox or suspension at the moment!!)

All, good news on this... I'm sure a few of you had emails from LoT asking about roll over protection recently...

After a brief email chat with Paul Golding at LoT, he has confirmed as a result of that poll they are updating the wording to the following (as of today), which I'm sure you'll agree is much clearer:


"All Caterham type vehicles must be fitted with an approved Roll Over Protection system(ROPs), as a minimum the upgraded track day roll bar with additional cross bracing. In addition, all Caterham type vehicles must be fitted with a 6 point approved roll-cage at Brands Hatch GP, Bilster Berg, Dijon, Spa Francorchamps."

As an Elise S1 as well as a Seven owner, I have done many days with LoT over the past five years. They are usually competitively priced and always well-run. The small group of similar cars accepted means you don't end up with the 'BMW problem' where they disappear on the straights and you're all over them in corners which is common on TDs run by other companies. There's a friendly bunch of drivers and very considerate on track. The 'overtake only with consent' rule really helps and is adhered to. Sevens are popular so you won't be alone. I'd recommend.

I'm looking to book the date in March.

Anyone know what the security is like at the Hilton onsite?  Just wondering about the trailer etc.

Not sure I'm afraid. If you aren't convinced by it then im sure they will let you keep it somewhere on the infield. May be worth speaking to the circuit themselves...
