Description

A frame up rebuild of a previous road car turned this car into a purpose built Historic Production Race Car. The regulations used were the competition rules from VARAC, the Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada.

History

The Lotus Europa S2 or Type 54 is the second interation of the classic mid-engined coupe. The S2 shared the Renault engine and transaxle of the Series I car, with a bodyshell featuring improved headroom and headlight height to meet safety standards. Also abandoned was the Series 1 practice of bonding the body and chassis together, making for a much more serviceable vehicle. While the later Lotus twincam Europas are often favored the all-aluminum Renault 1565 crossflow engines can produce near twincam power levels with an engine weighing 100 lbs less in a car several hundred pounds lighter.

Recent Competition History

The car has been raced for the last 3 years in Regional races, competing in Class 5A of Vintage races. Best time to date at Mosport is 1:46 min., but the driver knows that the car has more.
