On Your Marks charity day | Bruntingthorpe


Lotusbits took both Lotus Sunbeams to this years On Your Marks charity fun day at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground.
Apart from watching aerobatic displays, trying to drive an articulated lorry, learning to fly a helicopter, belting down the 2 mile runway in a supercar and lots more, visitors also had the chance to experience a passenger ride in a rally car.

The half mile tarmac and gravel rally stage was, perhaps, the only track ever to run underneath a Boeing 747...
Both Mike and Cathy enjoyed treating the passengers to some on the limit, sometimes over, sideways stuff in the Lotusbits Sunbeams - plenty of screams and lots of laughter...

Since the start of the On Your Marks charity day, the On Your Marks team and everyone connected with the day have raised an incredible £316,000. This years event will push the total even higher.

Wow! - 290 bhp on forecourt fuel!

Getting closer to 300bhp...
This is the latest dyno print for RTA 43X  - Lotusbits Lotus Sunbeam rally car (Mike Taylors).
Considering this is a competition engine, it's incredibly flexible, equally at home pottering on a light throttle around the Warwickshire roads or running flat out on a tarmac rally stage.
Just look at that torque curve.
For further details of this and our upgraded Lotus 900 series engines for competition and fast road use visit the Lotusbits website.
