Lotus Cup Europe set to visit continent’s best venues in 2021
Tuesday 1 December 2020
Grand Prix venues past and present feature on the 2021 Lotus Cup Europe calendar, which will visit four countries over seven meetings, including several prestigious events.
The FIA International Series is open to the world-famous British manufacturer’s products from the Elise onwards, including the Exige, Evora and 2-Eleven.
The calendar includes visits to many of the continent’s classic circuits, and will open at the Hockenheim Historic event in Germany. The long-established meeting will celebrate the life of Lotus F1 champion Jim Clark in the 50th anniversary of his passing, with a mixture of historic and contemporary cars in action.
From there the series will visit the majestic Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium in June before a long awaited return to Monza, the home of Italian motorsport. Monza see’s the championship link up once again with DTM for the first of three support races with the German championship.
Zolder, in the Flemish region of Belgium hosts the next event in August, again with DTM. Two weeks after Zolder the third event with DTM of 2021 see’s another visit to Nurburgring in DTM’s home country.
It’s then off to France for the final two rounds of the season with Le Mans up next with three races supporting the famous 24 Heures Camions event.
In a change to the normal calendar which usually see’s the final round at Le Mans, this year the championship finale will take place in October at Paul Ricard in the south of France, once again supporting the Coupe de France Camions truck racing championship.
