Looks like a universal fender flare kit. Those flares do not fit the curve/shape of the fenders very well. This application is obviously on a race car, so they probably didn't care too much about aesthetics here. FWIW Reverie makes proper flares for our cars, but it will co$t ya.

Considering the car has a "blackwatchracing" logo on it, consider contacting Fred at blackwatchracing.com (in Arizona) and ask him. I suspect he either knows what flares were used, or knows the owner.
Another (more likely) source for information is:
The car is also featured on Ankenyracing's website. He might know as well.

The minimal flare on the green car actually looks pretty good

That spoiler is MASSIVE! Great looking Elise!
Now, back to these flares, anyone else have something like this done? I'd like to see some more pics, and what vehicle were they ment for before fitted to the Elise?

Those fender flares on the green Lotus were for a Miata but they were modified somewhat. That's Jason Uyeda's car. Apparently those particular flares were FRP and they broke when hitting cones. I suspect something made for a Miata but in a softer material would be ideal if you're not going custom.
