Lotus test track

Does anyone know if thereís a video game out there that has the Lotus test track in it? My trip to Hethel is coming up soon and I want to prepare and familiarize myself. I have a PS3 and PS4 and Iíve tried looking in my old gran turismo games but I donít see the track in it. I havenít played video games in years so I canít remember if that track was ever in one of my games.

Did they re-open the track? When I was in Europe 2 years ago for about a month and a half, I wanted to do their Lotus track day, but they had closed the track and were not offering it at that time. I won't say it ruined the trip, as I got to do lots of other stuff I wanted to do there (St. Andrews, Normandy beaches, Guinness brewery tour, etc.), but it was one of the things I really wanted to do while I was there. If they did re-open it for that, please post, as I'm thinking about going back next year for a bit, and would for sure put this on the list of activities.

I ran their track last year and drove an Exige 430 Cup and Evora 410.

I am so jealous of you right now... I was literally going to do that exact same thing for myself for MY 40th birthday, but couldn't...

On the other hand, have a BLAST and enjoy the trip! I'm still going to be jealous of you though...

Richard gave my wife and I a tour while we were over there and I would highly recommend it. He is a very charming chap with a lot of stories to tell.
