WELCOME The 2019 Lotus Cup Europe season was our highest profile to date, with the addition of three weekends supporting DTM. We raced in France, Belgium, Germany, UK and headed back to Holland for the first time in five years. In addition to the 3 DTM support rounds at Assen, Brands Hatch & Nürburgring we once again supported the Hockenheim Historic – Jim Clark Revival on the 50th anniversary of the Lotus icon’s passing. In addition, we raced on the new F1 circuit at Paul Ricard with the Grand Prix du Camions. The season finished at the 24 Heures Camions event in Le Mans, also a round of the FIA European Truck Racing Championship, which attracted 60,000 visitors. The title went down to the final weekend at Le Mans with Hungary’s Bence Balogh taking the overall and V6 honours for the second year running from Franck Laroche in his 2-Eleven. Five drivers won races outright while Franck not only won the 2-Eleven championship but he managed to get on the overall podium at Brands Hatch, arguably the best result of the season. The Production category continues to provide us with fantastic racing with six drivers winning rounds. However, Sweden’s Sven Pettersson was crowned class champion for a second year running, finishing third in the overall standings. Looking forward to 2020 we’ll once again be joining DTM at Brands Hatch and Nürburgring while arguably the seasons highlight will be the trip to Monza, also with DTM. We’ll also be joining our friends at the Championnat de France Camions at Paul Ricard on the full F1 circuit and the Le Mans 24 Heures Camions season finale, and there’s a return to SpaFrancorchamps in July. Before these we start with our traditional visit to the Hockenheim Historic - Jim Clark Revival in April. Of course, it would not be possible for any of us to compete without the hard work of our LoTRDC club volunteers and the marshals, and we are hugely grateful for their contribution. We are always happy to help with any further queries you may have and we look forward to welcoming you to our events this season! Paul Golding Championship Coordinator

Europe’s finest coming together Lotus Cup Europe is firmly established as one of the continent’s strongest single-marque championships. Originally set up by Lotus as a direct response to customer and dealer interest for a fun but professionally-run series, it has attracted competitors from across the continent. Lotus Cup Europe was granted FIA International Series status in 2013, similar to prestigious Championships such as DTM and Blancpain GT Series. To include as much of the Lotus range of

sportscars as possible, entries are split into three classes: • V6 Cup - for the Exige V6 Cup and Evora GT4 • 2-Eleven/Open – for the four-cylinder supercharged open-top 2-Eleven, or four-cylinder Exige Cup cars and other cars based on the Elise chassis that are not eligible for the other categories. • Production – for normally-aspirated Elises and the Elise Cup R

2020 Tech Talk V6 Cup 2 Eleven/Open Production 3 groups: 15,000€ - 120,000€ Approx. car costs: from 1,000€ per round Approx. running costs: from 1,150€ Entry fees: Points highlights: 1st-25, 2nd-20, 3rd-17, 4th-15, then incrementally down one point for each finishing position score, 2 bonus points for fastest qualifier in class. 1 bonus point for fastest lap in class and 1 bonus point for leading a full lap. 14 highest scoring rounds count. Licence requirement: International D 20 06

Championship points are scored according to class position. This means that drivers from all four classes have an equal chance of competing for the overall title. Current champion Bence Balogh won from the V6 Cup ranks last year, however titles have previously been claimed from the 2-Eleven and Production classes. Lotus Cup Europe receives technical support from Group Lotus and there is also a dedicated hospitality unit where competitors can go for help and advice throughout the weekend. It also operates as a social hub with catering facilities and has proved to be just as important amongst the drivers as the competition itself. Each event has a minimum of a free practice session, 30 minutes of qualifying and at least two races, with both standing and rolling starts employed. For the 2020 season there will be three races at Paul Ricard and the season finale at Le Mans, just two of the classic circuits visited by Lotus Cup Europe, all of which have featured on present or past Formula 1 Grand Prix calendars. The 2020 championship will open at the Hockenheim Historic event in Germany, which is one of the venue’s biggest events of the season. From there the series will visit Paul Ricard

in southern France, supporting the Championnat de France Camions. Next up is the historic Monza circuit in Italy, the first of three rounds supporting the prestigious and hugely-popular DTM championship. The majestic and challenging Spa-Francorchamps is next, supporting the Fun Cup 25 hours before the second event on the DTM bill at Brands Hatch in the UK. The penultimate rounds will take place right in DTM heartland, with huge crowds expected at the Nürburgring before the championship finale at its now traditional location, Le Mans. Once again Lotus Cup Europe will join forces with the 24 Heures Camions, with the champions set to be crowned on the famous La Sarthe podium. Highlights of all rounds will be broadcast on Amazon Prime as part of an hour-long TV programme, they will also be loaded up to the Lotus Cup Europe Facebook channel. The championship also enjoys unrivalled support from the Lotus community, with many owners and enthusiasts attending events. This is backed up by social media activity, where well over 60,000 Facebook followers gave the Lotus Cup Europe page over 3 million views and a quarter of a million likes in 2019.

Classes Classes

V6 CUP The V6 Cup class is home to the most powerful cars in the Lotus range; these are motivated by the Toyota V6 engine. Max power 340bhp (Exige) & 360bhp (Evora), max power-to-weight (including driver) 285.7bhp/tonne.

Two models are eligible for this category: Evora GT4 – The race-prepared variant is normally-aspirated, but tuned by Cosworth and built to GT4 regulations. Exige V6 Cup – Unlike the Evora, the Exige has a supercharged Toyota V6, and is tuned for road and track performance. Both cars are equalised on power-to-weight to ensure parity on track.

2-ELEVEN / OPEN The 2-Eleven and Open classes stay combined for the 2020 season, with both equalised on power-toweight. Several cars are eligible for this category: 2-Eleven – Powered by the four-cylinder, supercharged Toyota engine, the 2-Eleven is an uncompromising, track-focussed open top car. max power 250bhp, min weight (including driver) 815kg. Open class cars – max power 260bhp, max power-to-weight (including driver) 285.7bhp/tonne 4-cylinder Exige – The previous generation of Exige Cup cars powered by the four-cylinder, supercharged Toyota. Whilst they are heavier than the 2-Eleven, these cars have a more aerodynamically-efficient shape. 20 08 08

Classes Classes

PRODUCTION The Production class is primarily for Elises, and whilst these are around 100bhp down on the other two categories, the racing here is even closer and more frenetic, with several cars and drivers capable of winning races. Eligible cars, equalised for power-to-weight, include: Elise Cup R & Elise S3 - The latest track-focussed incarnation of the Elise is powered by a four-cylinder, supercharged Toyota engine, but Lotus Cup Europe regulations ensure that rival machinery is able to compete on even terms. Max power 195bhp with series-spec engine map, min weight (including driver) 975kg. Elise S2 – Both K-Series and Toyota-engined cars have competed in the Production class, with K-series cars allowed to carry a little less weight to make up for the power deficiency to the Toyota machines. K-series max power 161bhp, min weight 790kg. Toyota max power 180bhp, minimum weight (including driver) 885kg. Elise S1 – The lightest and oldest cars competing in Lotus Cup Europe, Series 1 Elises run the K-series engine and regularly compete for race victories in this class. Max power 161bhp, minimum weight (including driver) 790kg.

Season Season Review Review

Lotus Cup Europe 2019 review The 2019 Lotus Cup Europe season provided another thrilling title race, with the overall championship going right down to the wire. Reigning champion Bence Balogh cemented his preseason status as favourite by winning the opening round of the year at Hockenheim from pole position. Nevertheless, the Hungarian faced challenges from both Frenchman Xavier Georges and 2017 champion John Rasse, with the Belgian taking the flag in the second race.

Balogh hit back with two wins in the three races at Paul Ricard, now held on the full-length F1 circuit, but not before Britain’s Jason McInulty had scored his first victory of the season. His title momentum was boosted with Christopher Laroche topping the 2-Eleven/ Open class just once, as Lisandre and David Harvey – taking the first win for an ‘Openspec’ car – prevailed in the other races. Spa-Francorchamps saw a change to the order at the front of the grid, with local driver Pieter Verlinde making his debut in the AM Ring Evora GT4.

In the newly-amalgamated 2-Eleven/Open class, siblings Franck and Christopher Laroche – reigning 2-Eleven champions – set the pace with a brace of class victories. Not only did this send a clear message to class favourites Christophe Lisandre, Anthony Fournier and Philippe Loup, but also set up a title run that would place Balogh on the back foot at several points during the season. 10

Securing a place on the front row of the grid, he led the opening race following a brave move on the opening lap, but with a combination of experience and championship-winning confidence, Balogh retook the place to claim the win. This was followed-up in the second race as Verlinde’s efforts were concentrated on successfully wresting back second place from a fast-starting Georges. In contrast to the Hungarian’s double victory, there was just a single win for the Laroche brothers, with Loup victorious in the second race. The first of three DTMsupporting rounds took place at Assen, the first time Lotus Cup Europe has visited the Netherlands circuit in five years.

Season Season Review Review With the title at stake, Franck Laroche claimed two important victories, the second becoming an overall podium finish after disaster for Swedish V6 runner Daniel Palma on the final lap. Despite Balogh taking pole position, mechanical issues on the green flag lap of the opening race gave the advantage to compatriot Tamas Vizin that even a spin in the drying conditions could not halt. The reigning champion hit back in the dry second race, with Vizin prevailing over Jason McInulty to take second place. A win for Fournier in the opening race meant that the Laroches failed to fully capitalise on Balogh’s misfortune, but Franck Laroche topped his class in the second encounter to score valuable points in the title race. As the championship moved on to Brands Hatch, Verlinde took pole position on the Grand Prix circuit, only to lose out to Balogh in the first race, despite thrilling challenges from Vizin and Steve Williams.

In the penultimate event of the season at the NĂźrburgring, Verlinde claimed his first Lotus Cup Europe victory, defeating Balogh in the process. The current champion won the opening race of the weekend however, closing the gap to title leader Franck Laroche, who similarly won just one of the races in class, finishing third to Fournier and Briton Ian Fenwick in the second race. With just one event to go, Laroche held a slender lead of just three points over Balogh, both having done enough to claim their respective class championships.

The two Hungarians staged a private battle for victory in the following race, with Vizin passing for the lead but ultimately losing out in the closing stages.

Supporting the 24 Heures Camions event, the Lotus Cup Europe championship showdown took place in front of a huge crowd in excess of 59,000.

Season Season Review Review

2019 review continued Balogh got off to a great start, topping both practice and qualifying in his Evora to take pole position by less than a tenth of a second from the Exige of Frenchman Xavier Georges. By contrast, Laroche could only take third place in the 2-Eleven/Open class, a second adrift of category polesitter and compatriot JeanBaptiste Loup. Balogh won the opening two races, with Chris Laroche overhauling his class rivals to maintain the title momentum, however a win for Fournier in the second handed the advantage to the Hungarian. Nevertheless, double points on offer in the final race of the season meant the title could still go either way.

In addition to the aforementioned drivers, there were also notable performances in the V6 Cup from podium finishers Nikolaj Ipsen, who was a frequent visitor to the rostrum, and Thierry Verhiest. The 2-Eleven/Open class also saw a podium visit from Nathalie Genoud-Prachex. The Production class may not have provided a consistent title challenger, but this was a result of an open and equally thrilling battle for honours between reigning class champion Sven Pettersson from Sweden and his British rival Mark Yates. Pettersson took the early category title lead with two wins at Hockenheim in his Elise Cup R, despite the close attention of Yates who looked set for a win in race two until Pettersson retook the initiative. Pettersson won again at Paul Ricard, sharing the class spoils with compatriot Cai Cederholm. Battle between the rivals was resumed at Spa, where Pettersson and Yates frantically disputed the lead in the opening race, which fell in Pettersson’s favour.

Balogh faced a much tougher challenge from McInulty in the title-decider and he would ultimately lose out by just under half a second. Similarly Laroche could not overhaul Loup, so Balogh’s earlier performances were enough for him to successfully defend his championship title. The Hungarian thus became the only driver to win back-to-back Lotus Cup Europe titles, and only the second multiple champion in the series. 12

In the second, Jean-Pierre Genoud-Prachex made an aggressive start, which yielded his first win of the season. The Frenchman looked set to followup in Assen, but fell back from an early lead to fourth place, handing the victory to Pettersson. Yates fought back to

season.

Two fourth places on home turf at Brands Hatch dented Yates’ title hopes, as Britain’s Craig Denman dominated the races. Podium finishes for Pettersson only added to the title challenger’s woes.

The ex-Welsh Guardsman was unbeatable at the French circuit, and with both Yates and Pettersson almost inseparable in the results, the destiny of the 2019 title would be decided in the final race. Yates finished behind Holland, but with his rival picking up more points earlier in the weekend, Pettersson added a second class championship to his tally.

Unbowed by defeat, however, Yates bounced back in a big way at the Nürburgring, winning both races, and with Pettersson on the podium in just one of these, the Briton held the points advantage heading into the final rounds.

The title protagonists and race winners were also joined on the podium during the season by Dan Plant, Dave Carr and John LaMaster.

Pettersson kept a cool head at Le Mans, where perhaps the tense nature of a title battle provided an advantage to Danny Holland, competing in his first Lotus Cup Europe

BENCE BALOGH

LCE Champion - Overall & V6 You’re the first person to retain the Lotus Cup Europe Overall Championship Title, how does it feel? It feels absolutely amazing to win the championship back to back (obviously :D). It’s a major accomplishment and I can’t underplay the amazing job everyone in the team did, especially Peter Pokorny and Alex Szücs. You managed a new lap record at the first round, Hockenheim, how did the car perform compared to last year? We improved quite a bit on the car since last year, thus the lap time improvements. Balance wise we probably did not hit quite the perfection we had last year, but it did prove to be good enough, for example at Spa-Francorchamps we managed pole and both races won with fastest laps. We hope we can find similar improvements for next year. 11 victories, the same as last year. John, Tamas, Peiter all winning one overall race and Jason taking 2 victories from you at different rounds. It went down to the final round this year at Le Mans – was 2019 tougher than 2018? Yes, what a year it was, a few downs but so many more ups both on and off the track, its been absolutely incredible. In category, I would say similar, there was someone pushing me every round. For the championship I would say it was tougher. The Laroche brothers did an absolutely perfect job in their 2-11. We supported DTM and went to Assen this year, was this a good addition to the last years cambions and historic events? Absolutely! I found Assen an incredible track. I can’t wait for Monza this year! It was also great to race the F1 configuration at Paul Ricard and achieve double victories and the inaugural lap record.

LCE Champion - 2-Eleven / Open Last year you said your goal was to defend the class championship title, you not only did that but had 9 1st class podiums, 2 more than last year? Indeed, last year I said that for the 2019 season i wanted to try and keep my title acquired in 2018, but like any competitor I wanted to improve and be more successful. Over the winter I spent time honing my skills and concentration with karting and believe this helped me to achieve the improved performances. It’s also the first season you raced without your brother at all rounds, how was that? It is true that it was not easy for me to attack a weekend alone because with Chris we always rolled together for 6 seasons. I really did try to give the best of myself on each meeting so everyone could be proud of me. I worked the videos with my brother Chris and Alex my mechanic to get the best from the car. It is also true that having more time to race, rather than share the car, certainly helped me a lot this season and allowed me to achieve great results such as the 3rd place overall at Brands Hatch. Although your brother wasn’t at some rounds, you still had your family supporting you and close racing with team mate Anthony Fournier? Chris has not always been able to come but Dad has always followed me this season, it’s also a big passion for him and a big novelty for me this season since my son Evan came to cheer me on. Anthony’s presence is also important because it’s with him that we started and without him it would not be the same especially since I had a great fight during the season, but I think the most beautiful was that of Assen. How did you feel going into the last weekend with a chance at not just retaining the class but winning the overall title too? It was very motivating to see that we could be winning overall but we knew that the odds were very low. Bence is a very good driver and his Evora is an excellent car, very reliable and very fast. We supported DTM and went to Assen this year, was this a good addition to the normal opening round at Hockenheim historic and both Cambions rounds at Paul Ricard and Le Mans? DTM is a great event with a lot of spectators, it’s very good for Lotus Cup Europe and that we can share the weekend with such an organization. The meeting of Hockenheim is always excellent, all types of cars and very diverse races.

SVEN PETTERSSON

LCE Champion - Production Last year you said your goal was to defend the class champion title, congratulations? It was absolutely my goal to defend the title. However, I was not so sure I would be able to do it. I knew that Mark was really hungry for the title and he is very fast. I also knew JP and Cai would be very competitive this year and surely would win races. Usually we were all within a second in qualification. I think the success ballast is a really good thing to equalise us between races, that contributes to making the production class so close and very competitive. In the end it all worked out for me and I want to thank my team, ES Motorsport, for making this possible. Special thanks also to Steve, my dedicated mechanic. How did the 2019 season compare to last year? It was a fantastic season and we had the best racing I have ever experienced. We had so many close races with the top cars within one or two seconds apart at the finish line. We had 6 different class winners during the season, and we had very fair racing the whole season. My ambition was to beat my 7 wins of last year, but I only managed 5 the racing was that close. You had a new lap record at Hockenheim this year, a good start to the season‌ Yes, that was a perfect start to the season. I really like Hockenheim and have always had rather good results there, but I did not expect to get a new lap record and walk home with both wins. That first weekend actually strengthened my confidence that I would be able to defend the title quite a lot. Mark Yates was your closest rival again with Cai and JP also being victorious, there were a few guest production drivers that took some valuable wins, namely Craig Denman at Brands Hatch and Danny Holland at Le Mans... Yes, about halfway through the season it slowly developed into a fight for the title between Mark and I. Whereby I was very strong in the first part of the season and Mark quickly started to catch up in the second part. In the end it was all decided in the last race of the season at Le Mans. I do not think the guest drivers really changed much regarding the title fight. Both Mark and I lost points to them. It was however a pleasure to drive against them as Craig and Danny are excellent drivers. We supported DTM and went to Assen, Brands Hatch and Nßrburgring this year, was this a good addition? I greatly enjoyed all our DTM events this year. Lots of action on the track and in the paddock, big crowd, perfect organization. It is very cool to have the opportunity to drive on big events like the DTM. 18

A hat-trick of DOUBLE Champions We asked them... What’s next for 2020?

Bence: Mission Impossible? We will give the championship another go. See if we can make it three out of three. It will definitely be a major challenge!

Franck: Eyes on the Overall Prize! For next season, I will try to keep my title and why not try to do even better by winning the title overall. But above all I will try to take as much pleasure as I took this year.

Sven: Moving on up... Next year I will compete in the V6 class, in an Evora GT4, which will be a new beginning for me and quite a challenge. The car and my fellow competitors on track are new for me so my ambition is, as I did in the production class, to build up, improve and to go for some good results in the second or third season.

HOCKENHEIM 24-26 April

2020

Round 1

Located close to Mannheim and Frankfurt, Hockenheim is the current home of the German Grand Prix and has hosted the event many times since its introduction to the Formula One calendar in 1970. Future Lotus World Champion Jochen Rindt won that event, but the annual Hockenheim Historic celebrates the life and legacy of Lotus icon Jim Clark. Lotus Cup Europe has been the only modern race series on the Hockenheim Historic bill for several seasons and has traditionally opened the season. The event als features racing from a variety of categories that has included BOSS GP for 90s and 00s F1 cars, Historic F2, classic sports and touring cars and much more. The popular event is also renowned for classic car displays and nostalgic entertainment. Location Opened Length

Round 2

Paul Ricard returned to the F1 calendar in 2018, two years after Lotus Cup Europe held its first event at the Mediterranean venue. Paul Ricard hosted the French Grand Prix on many occasions from 1971 to 1990. Lotus drivers Ronnie Peterson and Mario Andretti won there, whilst future Lotus Cup Europe driver Martin Donnelly made his GP debut there 30 years ago. The Grand Prix Camions du Castellet is a hugely popular event at the venue, headlined by the Championnat de France Camions. French truck racing events are a carnival of colour and noise, and the venue is taken over by devotees to the freight cause, with a huge on-track parade on both days. The result is a big crowd for all three of the Lotus Cup Europe races. Location Opened Length 20

Round 3

The Monza Eni Circuit, just northeast of Milan, in northern Italy is universally known as the Temple of Speed, and becomes the DTM’s fourth-ever Italian venue. One of the most historic circuits in the world, having hosted Formula 1 in all-but-one of its seasons since 1950. Located in a natural park, it features long straights with hard braking chicanes and challenging corners, making it a favourite among racing drivers. Several Lotus drivers appear in the official hall of fame, including Ronnie Peterson & Mario Andretti both in a Lotus JPS, and Jim Clark. Lotus Cup Europe returns to Monza after a 14 year break.

Round 4

‘Majestic’ is often used to describe this legendry undulating circuit, nestled in the Ardennes Forest close to the German border. Spa-Francorchamps is a popular venue for many race series, and it’s a near-permanent fixture on the Lotus Cup Europe calendar. From saloon racers to the Belgian Grand Prix competitors, all acknowledge the circuit as one of the world’s very finest, and the iconic Eau Rouge sequence is a challenge that is both enduring and thrilling. Lotus Cup Europe returns to the Spa 25 hour, a weekend that was a regular on the calendar. Although Lotus Cup Europe has generally been very lucky with the weather at Spa-Francorchamps, it’s known for its changeable conditions, which only adds to the challenge for the drivers.

Round 5

Brands Hatch hosted the first ever Lotus race organised by LoTRDC, and the first round of Lotus Cup Europe under its stewardship. The history of the famous track, located close to London, is entwined with Lotus, whose star driver Jim Clark won the first GP to be held there in 1964. Since then Jo Siffert, Jochen Rindt and Emerson Fittipaldi all won Grands Prix in Lotus machinery, and the full circuit remains essentially unchanged since those glory years. Lotus Cup Europe will join DTM at the Kent circuit, but it’s not the first time a LoTRDC organised series has supported the German championship here. In 2007 an Elise Trophy grid was quickly assembled as a last-minute support race, and the series returned with Lotus Cup UK a few years later. Location Opened Length

Round 6

Germany’s most famous race venue has made several appearances on the Lotus Cup Europe calendar, and is another that has associations with F1 success. Both Stirling Moss and Jim Clark won on the fearsome Nordschleife, however, since F1 returned to the venue in the mid-1980s it has raced on the newer, shorter configuration. The Nürburgring is also in the heart of DTM country, and German racing fans will be flocking to the Eifel region to see their heroes in action. The final event of three featuring Lotus Cup Europe, this is expected to be the biggest of the trio and one of the highlights of the season as the title race reaches a critical point.

Round 7

Lotus Cup Europe’s season-closer has been held at Le Mans for many years, and in recent times has been part of the huge 24 Heures Camions event. Whilst better known for the famous round-the-clock sportscar race, the venue in north-west France also hosted the French Grand Prix in 1967 on the Bugatti circuit. More than 57,000 fans attend the 24 Heures Camions event, which features both the Championnat de France Camions and the FIA European Truck Racing Championship. Many spend the weekend at the circuit, and a spectacular Saturday evening programme includes action on the pit straight, fireworks and live music. Lotus Cup Europe is the only car racing on the bill, and the 2019 champions will be crowned on the famous podium! Location Opened Length
