James Whiting was at the first Lotus 7 Club gathering at Beaulieu in 1983 with his ‘Martini’ liveried Caterham Seven sprint car, and he was back at Beaulieu again in June 2013 for the 30th anniversary of the Lotus 7 Club.
The picture above was taken in June 2013 and recreates the picture that appears on the front cover of the book “Lotus Seven, Super Profile” by Graham Arnold, which was taken at the 1983 event. Both cars are still in the same ownership now, as they were back in the 1970‘s.

In 1983 the newly formed Lotus 7 Club of Great Britain held its first national gathering of Lotus and Caterham Sevens at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu. Thirty years later, the event was repeated.
