Hi all,

While visiting the Lotus factory and Classic Team Lotus workshops this summer, I stumbled into an amazing invitation (from Clive Chapman!) to join CTL as a helper during the F1 Grand Prix support race at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX. As you may know, it was a soggy affair -- but I still had an amazing time. I thought I would share the pictures that I took, since many of you will probably appreciate them.

Teaser:

The first photos are from the CTL workshop tour, and then it transitions to the F1 GP pictures.

I put only the better photos in the album, but if you want to see everything then please feel free to browse my Photostream.

Enjoy!

Those cars look so fantastic in that livery. Thanks for sharing!

The Classic guys really got hosed at Austin this year thanks to the weather. They never got a green lap, which was a real shame.

In reply to Keith Tanner:

The second practice session on Friday was good. The drivers were told beforehand that it might count as qualifying if Saturday was rained out. As it turns out, it counted as both qualifying and the race itself
