Big Lotus Elan crash Brands hatch 2011
Heavy contact in the CSCC swinging sixties group 2 race resulted in 3 very damaged cars. The no.14 Scimitar SE5 GTE runs wide, rejoins and collects the innocent no.42 Lotus elan of Philip Rothwell and the no.99 lotus seven of John Muirhead. Carnage ensues as the rear 3rd of the Elan gets taken off. Very lucky it didnt end a lot worse as the fuel tank was in the rear third that got destroyed! Also apologies for the fencing getting in the way a bit,I was sitting down at the time!

Lotus Elan +2 FOR SALE
This is my Lotus Elan +2 built in 1972 and registered in 1973, therefore it's classed as a historical vehicle and qualifies for free road tax. The mileage is currently 38,000 miles with a folder showing the repairs and maintenance going back to 1973 with old MOTs showing the increase in mileage until the car was taken off road 10 years ago and recommissioned last year. It's currently taxed and MOT'd and is in daily use, it has never failed to start and it runs and drives beautifully. Everything works as it should including interior lights, door puddle lights, headlamps (that have been converted to halogen bulbs), the door locks, clock, ambient temperature, rev-counter, speedo, electric windows and has the original working radio. All the electrics are good and it is currently running on an electronic ignition system and a Lucas high power coil. It runs on unleaded fuel. The cooling fan has been replaced to a nine inch fan that fits directly in the front of the radiator. I have sat in heavy traffic on a hot day with no overheating issues whatsoever. The heaters work on both the hot and the cold position. The heater rear window also works which is excellent for defrosting the rear screen on those cold winter mornings. The wheels are steel knock-ons with the chrome outer rims and five brand new 165 R13 Goodyear GT80 tyres. The brake discs and pads have been replaced all around. The discs are the drilled and grooved type that give excellent braking. The callipers and brake pipes have all been replaced and are all as good as new. The car has been fully serviced including spark plugs, oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, gearbox oil, diff oil and brake fluid. The car was resprayed in 1981 at David May Motor Services, according to an invoice I have. It still looks presentable and shines but as with all of these vehicles there are some blisters, small lines and imperfections but overall the car looks fantastic but would benefit from a re-spray if so required. The chassis is in excellent condition and has been fully professionally under-sealed. All the seatbelt points are strong and good. The body has never been separated from the chassis as you would expect from a low mileage vehicle. It has never been restored, only maintained. The car is an absolute pleasure to drive. It is an original vehicle with low mileage and a future investment. I will put a full years MOT on the car for the sale. The road tax is free, so you can get that whenever you like, but it is currently taxed until the end of August.
