Lotus Eleven

I photographed this car at the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies meeting at Donington Park in May 2001.
It's the 1956 Lotus Eleven driven in the 2¼ hour long Historic Motor Racing News Gentlemen Drivers GT & Sports Car Race by Robert Mills and Ian Montgomery. The Eleven is the only Lotus that has its marque number spelled out - earlier models were given Roman numerals (I to X), and later cars from the 12 onwards were just given simple numbers.
