Lotus has always been penalize in competition at least in the US. When the Esprits originally ran in SCCA world challenge, because they were so competitive SCCA kept making them add ballast to make it less so until the car was running with a couple hundred pounds (or more). This caused them to move over to IMSA where the same thing happened. (in IMSA they were quite competitive against Joest Porsches)

I love it that this tiny company can be a giant killer!

PS>Have no doubt the other competitors on auto x will be reading the rule books thoroughly to go against the elise.
