The popular Lotus Festival returns to Brands Hatch this year to celebrate the past and present of one of Britain's most iconic sports car manufacturers.

In addition there will be demonstrations from Formula 1 cars, and rally demonstrations and rides on the Lotusbits rally stage. There will also be a full support package of racing.
