On June 23rd 2019, Peak Rail played host to hundreds of Lotus cars at the Northwood showground at Rowsley South and what a marvellous spectacle it turned out to be.
On show were Lotus cars from all eras of it’s production and one was reminded of the famous use of a Lotus 7 in the 1960s TV series, The Prisoner and driven by Patrick McGoohan (Google it!).
The weather was kind for the rally, allowing for the owners lucky enough to have an open top, to open them wide whilst on their rally through the Derbyshire Dales.
After a breakfast at Hassop Station, the procession of over 100 cars eventually arrived up at Peak Rail’s Rowsley South station at around 11:15am, where the cars lined up in their rows, allowing for owners to discuss the latest modifications and for visitors to wander round and take in the plethora of shapes and colours of this iconic motor vehicle.
We look forward to seeing the return of the cars next year, but until then we have another car rally coming up in the shape of the Mazda MX5 owners club rally on the 21st July, and on August 10th and 11th we have our first Steam and Diesel gala.
