2019 WCLM Chair, Mike Tatro, “The GGLC-Sacramento is excited to host the 2019 West Coast Lotus Meet to welcome Lotus enthusiasts from across the globe to celebrate everything that is special about Lotus.”
“Our 2019 WCLM Committee has planned a fantastic series of events that include a WCLM Casual Concours, amazing scenic drives in the California Gold Country, the WCLM Banquet, the WCLM Autocross, an optional Lotus track day at the Thunderhill Raceway. In addition, there will be great awards, dinners and more!”
After 3 years in service, the GGLC Truck that carries all our autocross equpment was beginning to look a little worse for wear. It was decided that we would paint it in the classic Lotus colours of British racing green with a yellow stripe. We wanted something big and bold, it needed the GGLC logo and we wanted something that showed the cars. This was our final result:
We went through a bunch of different designs, with horizontal stripes, car cut-aways, big flash photos of cars, Union Jack flags and other elements. The final design is bold – big vertical yellow stripe; messages – GGLC logo and GGLC branding; statement – says what the GGLC is about; cars – shadowed/ghosted car images down the length of the truck.
