arrowThe illustrious Fuji Speedway will host the 7th Lotus Day in a celebration of the wonderful history and success of the sports and racing car brand birthed in England in 1952 by two University of London graduates, Colin Chapman and Colin Dare.
This event gives drivers and enthusiasts alike, a chance to revel in the style and glory of Lotusf lightweight design and excellent handling. Free driving time and organized events fill the day alongside displays, historical information and cars for close up viewing and inspection. With so many models stretching over 5 decades, expect to enjoy the classic curves and speedy vibes of this company which dominated Formula 1 in the 60fs and 70fs.
Team Lotus was formed as a sister company in the early days and went on to become the most successful of its era. Innovation was the key to much success with Colin Chapman being the Chief Designer. Pioneering evolutions of design such as aerodynamics, gas turbine engines, monocoque (structural skin) chassis and 4 wheel drive to name a few, helped team lotus edge out rivals in Grand Prix Races and other major events such as the Indianapolis 500.
Perhaps on Lotus Day you can register and join an esteemed list of people who have driven this stylish vehicle. Drivers such as Jim Clark (2 time world Champion), Graham Hill, Jochen Rindt, Emerson Fittipaldi. Mario Andretti and Ayrton Senna. Also of note, Japanese racing driver Satoru Nakajima broke into F1 with Lotus achieving his best 4th place Grand Prix result on two occasions. He was highly regarded in the community for his genuine and kind persona. The Japanese link to Lotus is strong, as about the time of Nakajima, Lotus began using the Honda engine and much later, Chapman sold intellectual property to Toyota and collaborated with them somewhat.
Car people are passionate people and you can expect to be enthralled as you soak up the atmosphere in the foothills of Mount Fuji. With its close proximity to Tokyo making it an ideal days adventure, Fuji speedway itself has a fascinating history. Its early designs being quite dangerous, it has been modified to save lives. While maintaining its very long straight of 1.475km enabling high speeds to be reached, in the case of Lotus Day, it is a chance to cruise alongside other beautiful creations and check out their performance.
