Ex Lotus F1 star Donnelly to race 2-Eleven

Dr Feelgood confirmed for Lotus Celebration
All News
10 Mar 2008
Ex Lotus F1 driver Martin Donnelly will once again be racing a Lotus in the Elise Trophy in 2008. After successful outings in a class A Elise at Donington Park & Spa Francorchamps in 2007, this year he will be racing a class B 2-Eleven, and will be in action at the Lotus Celebration on 23-24 March.
Ulsterman Donnelly competed in British F3 and F3000 from 1986-89, alongside the likes of Jean Alesi, Johnny Herbert & Mark Blundell. He made his F1 debut with Arrows at the French GP in 1989, continuing with Lotus in 1990. A promising F1 career was cut short after a horrific crash at Jerez.
The Lotus 2-Eleven, powered by a supercharged Toyota engine, is Lotus' latest model and is designed purely for the track. Expect some fireworks towards the front of the grid with Donnelly at the wheel!
He also offers instruction, I think we should get him over here to give us a few pointers:clap::shift:

Er... hate to say this my liege....
But I really don't think that was MD.
Looks more like someone who came fifth in a Jarno Trulli lookalike contest....
That is not MD it is my mate Gavin that is racing in the same series:wave:
