There's one trait that all car enthusiasts have in common, and that is passion for their chosen car brand. We attended the Lotus Drive Day where we got to see first-hand how passionate the Lotus community is at Australia's most iconic racetrack - Mount Panorama at Bathurst.
On a typical day, it is a public road with a 60km/h speed limit, but for three times a year, it is only open for track use, which today sees us at one of those special days.
And there's no 60km/h speed limit in sight.
Simply Sports Cars was on hand to help the nearly 100 Lotus drivers with any questions or mechanical issues they had, even checking tyre pressures and tracking telemetry after each event.
We also had our newly purchased bright orange Lotus Elise S there to join in on the fun, and we were warmly welcomed by many friendly Lotus people.
