Lotus Type 59 at Festival

16th August 2016

The Lotus Type 59a F3 car will be at the Lotus Festival this year driving in our on track display of historic racers. This car is fresh from restoration for the 40th Anniversary of James Hunt becoming F1 World Champion this year and is the very car which featured in “Rush”.

As a ‘return to home’, James Hunt won at Brands Hatch in 1970, driving none other than a Lotus Type 59.
