New Winners & Championship Runners Up in 2015

Following multiple championship titles it was always going to be difficult to maintain the momentum but 2015 saw track-club drivers take the runner up slot in the Overall Lotus Cup UK Supersport Championship (Ken Savage), the Lotus Cup UK Exige Cup (Alex Reed) and the Lotus Cup UK Production Championship (Stuart Ratcliff & Anthony Dunn).

The final round at Snetterton wasn’t without success however as it brought one of the most popular victories in the history of the series when Seth Walpole took not only his first podium but a first overall victory holding up multiple race winner Craig Denman to take a stunning win in the second Elise Trophy race.

Seth’s win was long overdue and his results have steadily improved since switching to a later spec Lotus Elise 111R. ┬áThere was literally a queue of drivers and crew waiting to congratulate one of the most popular drivers in the paddock as he brought the car back into the parc ferme.
