Looking to compete in Lotus Cup UK or Elise Trophy? We'd love to welcome you to our championships and friendly club atmosphere where you'll find some of the fastest and most competitive circuit racing at club level in the UK.

Need a Race License?

Before you can go racing, you'll need to ensure you hold the relevant UK race license by completing your ARDS. You can find out more about booking your ARDS tests and available dates on the MSV Trackday website here. It's nothing too scary but you'll need to be competent at driving around a circuit and ensure you are fully aware of the safety aspects and the flags for racing.

Choosing A Car

Next, you'll need to decide what car you'd like to race in. We've written this handy guide on the pros and cons of each model of Lotus Elise cars that race in our championship and you should check this out to see what suits your style and budget.

Purchasing, Building or Arrive and Drive?

There are a number of ways you can take up the challenge in our championship. First, you could enter as a privateer and buy a race ready car either from one of our teams or from the classifieds section here. You could also build your own to our technical regulations or if that doesn't suit how about an arrive and drive option for you where you are supported every step of the way by one of our fantastic teams. The choice is yours and you can either contact the teams directly or contact us and we'll put you in touch with teams with availability.

Ready for your First Race?

If you are interested in going racing with us then give us a call and we'll guide you through the simple process to get on the grid. We are here to help and happy to answer all of your questions.

In short, you'll need to create an account and driver profile here and then submit an entry form from your account on this link. Once submitted you can then pay for your round entry from our shop here.

Make sure you are familiar with the series regulations page as you'll need to ensure you conform to these when in competition.
