I recently visited the Lotus Cars factory and test track up in Hethel, Norfolk. The factory was fascinating, the cars were brilliant and the various Lotus people I met were friendly and knowledgeable about the brand and business.

Tomorrow, Tuesday 5 November, Speedmonkey will be entirely devoted to Lotus Cars, including:

Lotus Exige S Roadster - Track Test Review
Lotus Cars - Tales From A Factory Tour
Lotus Cars - Guide To Each Model Including Prices And Stats

Come back tomorrow for an insight into this most sporty of British sports car companies. For now here's a taster - two laps of the Hethel test track in an Exige S Roadster with Lotus Cars Senior Engineer, Vehicle Dynamics, Darren Cockle giving us a guided tour.
