Hi all, Is there an active Lotus Club in Japan?

I am trying to trace a Lotus Elan, UK registration: 7599 VC.
I know it was sold to someone in Japan in 1993 or 1994.

It was rebuilt by the late Bob Brain for Paul Howcroft and myself, through our then company AutostoricA, we used it to win our second European Historic Championship in 1988.

After Paul was unfortunately killed in a motorbike accident in 1993, the car was sold to Japan in late 1993 or more likely 1994. Unfortunately I don't know any more details about its sale. When it was sold, it had a full set of FIA Historic papers and was an extremely well engineered, competition Elan.

I am just trying to find out a bit more about what happened to it and what it is doing nowadays, manly for Bob Brain’s family.
I am not asking for any confidential information, only that if anyone dose have some ideas or knows its current owner, you will pass my inquiry and contact details on to them.

I do have some Japanese friends here in the UK, so if it would be easer to replay in Japanese I can get it translated and also reply in Japanese.

Thanking you in anticipation of any help you can give me.
