Welcome to the next Grand Tour with Lotus Car Club of Sweden. Since a couple of years, we’ve arranged a number of road trips in Europe. In 2016 we drove to England when our club celebrated its 40th anniversary. In 2018 we drove to Hockenheim to attend the Hockenheim Classic. In 2019 we went back to England and Wales via Holland and Lotus Cup Europe at Assen. In 2020 we plan to go to the Alps and chase passes and hairpins. We are confident that this will be another memorable journey.

All participants will have to arrange their own hotel and ferry bookings. Some of us will drive together from Stockholm. Other will meet up along the way. In the road book we’ve prepared, there are proposed hotels. Each and everyone can decide to book another hotel. But we aim to stay nearby and meet up for dinner in the evenings. We will start at the proposed hotels in the morning. Just to have a common starting point.

Below you can find the most recent map that we’ve created in Google Maps. Further down on this page, you can find a contact form. You can get in touch with us by filling in this form. By doing so, you will also get a copy of the latest road book. We will also include you in any further communication about the tour. If you have input regarding the planned tour. You are more than welcome to contact us.
Welcome!

2020-06-30
Because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its consequences, Stefan Axelsson and Göran Forslund have announced that they unfortunately cannot participate on this journey. Stefan because he has to take a summer vacation this year and Göran who is a pensioner should not go on long trips under the circumstances that we are now. I will wait until mid-August to decide if I can make the tour.
Remember to book cancellable tickets and hotel rooms as far as possible and follow the developments in the countries we will be visiting. Here on the website of Sweden’s embassies and consulates you can find information about what applies in different countries: Swedenabroad.se
Best Regards
Per Mohlin
