Lotus are proud to announce the introduction of a new service to customers. A fully-equipped van is to be sent to as many race meetings as possible to provide a comprehensive “on-the-spot” spares service. Spares for all models of Lotus competition cars will be carried and the service is also available to provide assistance to customers who have technical queries.
The van will be manned by factory personnel, Ray Parsons (when his racing commitments permit, Works Driver and Liaison Engineer, and Rod Sawyer, Sales Executive of Lotus Components Ltd.
As many Lotus chassis are fitted with B.R.M., Cosworth or Holbay engines and Hewland gearboxes, Lotus are indeed fortunate in the co-operation given to them by these firms, who have supplied quantities of spare parts for their products to help complete the stock carried on the Lotus Racing Service Van. This means that not only Lotus customers but all competitors will be able to avail themselves of the service which Lotus hope will become a permanent attraction in the paddocks at all the circuits in the country. Lotus are also indebted to the organisers The British Automobile Racing Club, The British Racing Drivers’ Club and the British Racing and Sports Car Club for their assistance in providing access for the van to their paddocks.
