It was a lovely little distraction from doing real work. Today Lotus gave us reason to head back to the configurator! Historic F1 Liveries.
There are six main options:
They have names like Challenger and Innovator. These relate to real Lotus races cars or liveries that they raced in the past. Lotus have some of the most iconic race liveries to ever grace the race tracks of the world. To help the uninitiated, we’ve put a list together of the cars/liveries that each spec relates to:
|EVIJA LIVERY||REAL RACE LIVERY||YEARS RACED|
