Lotus Elan BDG - Silverstone 30/08/11
1973 Lotus Elan Sprint fitted with Cosworth BDG and 6-speed gearbox at
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!
