Payne moves in to Road­sports in Lotus

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Howard Payne, the 2014 Club­mans Sports 1600 cham­pion, will switch to the 70s Road­sports se­ries with a re­cently ac­quired Lotus Europa Twin Cam.

“I had an op­por­tu­nity to buy the Europa and it seemed an ideal time to make the tran­si­tion to his­toric events af­ter rac­ing in Club­mans for over a quar­ter of a cen­tury,” said Payne.

“The Lotus was built for rac­ing by Dan and Glenn Eagling of Life­time Rac­ing, who re­built my Mal­lock MK20B af­ter it was writ­ten-off.”

The Lotus, like the cham­pi­onship-win­ning Mal­lock, will be run at events by Hunt­ing­don­shire Re­gional Col­lege stu­dents as part of a long-stand­ing part­ner­ship be­tween Payne and the Col­lege.
