2006 Lotus Elise Race Car

This 2006 Elise race car has a long history in Lotus Cup. It was first raced by Brent Bowman (as “Saffron”) in 2012-13 Lotus Cup, and later raced by Gare Bone as “Snow White” in 2014-15. SP Motorsports bought the car in late 2016, and rebuilt the car inside and out to improve performance, reliability and appearance. It is now available for both Lotus Cup racing and track days in 2017.
