Lotus Elan S1 1963
My Brother and me were racing a C2 corvette through the nineties. End of nineties we had some wonderful dogfights on the Nordschleife for P1 with a Lotus Elan driven by Mr. Kottulinsky. Unfortunately we lost 2 times against the Elan because the Elan stole us 2 minutes just while fueling the car in the middle of the race. You find the Motor-Klassik Report about this race in the pictures.
This experience brought the idea to our dad to build an Elan. He purchased this wonderful and already succesful car from Switzerland in 2000. The car was than totally rebuild by specialists in Germany. Our dad`s plan was to race this car in the GTM series in 2002. UNfortunately he never raced this car.
I have made some succesful test drives in Zolder after finsihing the race preparation in 2002. Since this test drives the car was never used.
This Year we made the decision to sell the car because our racing focus changed to more modern cars.
We completely checked the car and ask Fred Laufer Motorsport to take care of the engine. You can find the Invoice from Fred Laufer in the picture area.
We built in a new battery, new Perspex windows, new fuel cell. 4 fresh Magnesium wheels were added to the car.
The car is located in Essen / Germany about 10 minuntes from Düsseldorf Intl Airport.
Looking forward to find a new owner for this lovely racecar.
