The Lotus Driving Academy is pleased to announce the addition of the new, critically acclaimed Evora 400 to its fleet. What’s more, the entire fleet is renewed, with five Elise 220 Cup, two Exige S and one Exige S Club Racer model joining the new Evora 400 and now available to drive on the famed Hethel test track at Lotus’ Norfolk HQ.
Jean-Marc Gales, Chief Executive Officer of Group Lotus plc, commented: “We are pleased to offer potential customers and track driving enthusiasts the opportunity to drive the new Lotus Evora 400 and our other high-performance models at our Hethel test track. Lotus prides itself on offering benchmark handling and pure driving experience and the Evora 400, developed at Hethel, is the latest proof of this concept. To drive the Evora 400 at the very track used throughout the model development process is a truly unique and privileged opportunity and we are delighted to be able to offer this experience to the public.”
The Lotus Driving Academy rewards passionate car enthusiasts – including the Lotus driver of today and tomorrow – with an unforgettable driving experience. Those attending one of the Elise, Exige and now Evora Experience can explore the performance of Lotus’ very latest sports cars on a purpose-built test track facility, under the guidance of world-class instructors who are skilled at teaching drivers how to get the best out of the car and themselves.
To coincide with the launch of the new fleet, the Lotus Driving Academy also launches two brand new driving experiences, the Exige Experience and Evora Experience. These will run alongside the hugely successful Elise Experience that has been part of the Lotus Driving Academy’s programme for several years.

The Evora Experience costs £349 and includes a vehicle dynamics briefing, two 20 minute track driving sessions, a Lotus factory tour and a tour of the motorsport facility.
