Your Lotus Driving Experience
When you think of the height of British motorsport, Lotus is one of the first titles that comes to mind, and with good reason.
Lotus cars have raced in and claimed several of the most prominent motorsport series in the world, including Formula 1.
Now you can feel the raw strength and amazing driving ability that has been moved from the top of motorsport to these superlight British sports cars. Lotus has been immortalised in the British Motorsports hall of fame and it will stay there forever.
Lotus is regularly among the most common driving experiences and marques of car for track day hire with TrackDays.co.uk, and it's no coincidence.
Apart from driving a go-kart, there are few vehicles that are as low to the ground or as aerodynamic as a Lotus, greatly amplifying the impact of speed as you sweep through corners.
TrackDays.co.uk is particularly proud to sell the Lotus Elise as a track day car hire for your enjoyment!
These cars were built using cutting-edge racing technology, including near-perfect weight distributions and suspension handling characteristics, so use caution! Lotus are also known for an incredibly seamless and robust gearbox - with their own advice being to simply smash between gears and do not be gentle.
Why should the adults, on the other hand, get all the fun? They don't have to because TrackDays.co.uk offers a Lotus junior driving experience that allows kids to get behind the wheel.
Want to see the rush of a Lotus but are unable to drive? No worries, we've got you protected with our Elise passenger trip from TrackDays.co.uk. Prepare to be taken on a journey of a lifetime as knowledgeable instructors leave you breathless as they unleash the strength of this legendary vehicle.
Where can I book a Lotus Experience in the UK?
Regardless of where you are in the UK - north, south, east, or west - TrackDays has a wide variety of places and sites, so you might get behind the wheel of a Lotus at a spot closer than you expect.
For example, Elvington Circuit in Yorkshire and Teesside Autodrome in Middlesbrough both offer our Junior Lotus Thrill. The latter location also offers a one-of-a-kind driving day package, in which you can pit the Elise against a Ferrari California or 360 model over five laps each.
We've also made finding your closest venue as simple as possible; use the special Location resources and filters on the top left of this page to browse by postcode or area of the UK, and we'll show you all available results that fit your requirements.
How to Make a Lotus Driving Experience Reservation
You can book your next Lotus driving day with us at TrackDays in one of two simple ways. Our open gift certificates create fantastic gift ideas for birthdays, Christmas, and other special holidays, if you choose to surprise a loved one or treat yourself. Or if you would prefer you can book straight onto a date on the calendar above.
If you're purchasing an open gift voucher for a Lotus drive, double-check the duration, since certain Lotus vouchers and promotional deals can have a shorter or longer validity period.
If you book a Lotus Experience directly into a date, please keep in mind that you are making a booking request, and the date and time you choose are always subject to availability. We normally confirm bookings within 48 hours, but it's important that you wait until you get a final confirmation email before making any plans related to your order.
Remember when purchasing a Lotus Experience to verify that the driver satisfies both age, weight, height, and driving licence specifications. Each encounter would have its own set of specifications, so make sure you've been through all of the important details.
If an event is just for junior drivers, we would normally list it in the kit name, although this is not always the case. If you book a Lotus Experience and the driver does not fulfil the conditions on the day, they would most likely not be able to drive.
Terms and Conditions
All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.
When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.
Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.
Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
