Full reunion for CTL

| 1 Nov 2010

History was made on 20 June when Classic Team Lotus lined up all 35 Team Lotus F1 designs for the first time.

The spectacular static grid at Snetterton spanned everything from the '58 Type 12 to the '94 Type 109.

The annual Lotus Festival, renamed the CTL Festival this year, took place a week before the marque's 500th Grand Prix in Valencia and was boosted by on-track action from the Lotus on Track and Lotus Cup Europe series.

Sir Stirling Moss' son Elliott demo-ed a Type 18, the design that took his father to Lotus' first F1 victory at Monaco in 1960.

Also there was the latest GP car, the Lotus Racing T127, which was officially tested for the first time after special F1 dispensation.

"Fairuz Fauzy did 300 clicks down the straight," said Lotus founder Colin Chapman's son Clive.
