Anniversary logo designed by Julian Thomson
On request of Bends&Curves Julian Thomson has designed a bespoke logo for the Elise 25th Anniversary celebration at Silverstone Classic. As designer of the Lotus Elise S1, Julian needs no further introduction. The logo is at the top of this post, and we love it! Participants of the Bends&Curves tour will receive a polo shirt with the logo and more regalia will be on sale soon.

Due to limited availability and price fluctuation in Silverstone Classic tickets (prices are raised nearer the event) and in the costs of the ferry crossings, we can’t provide a fixed quotation. After registration, we will send a personal quotation.
Indicative, the participation fee will start at € 800 per person if you travel with 1 person in a car and € 600 per person if you travel with 2 persons in a car (price difference is due to the ferry fee and Silverstone Classic tickets which are valid for 2 persons in 1 car). In case two participants, who are both taking part without co-driver, are willing to share a car at Silverstone Classic, they can enter on 1 ticket which will save them € 60 or more per head.
The participation fee includes:
- Calais – Dover – Calais DFDS ferry crossing return tickets (Flexi rate instead of the cheaper Economy rate, because of cancellation option).
- Weekend tickets for Silverstone Classic (Friday-Saturday-Sunday) with infield parking at Club Lotus stand (valid for 1 car + 2 people).
- 4 nights in the Campanile Hotel Northampton and 1 night in Best Western Abbots Barton Hotel in Canterbury, based on a twin/double room and bed & breakfast.
- Commemorative polo shirt.
- GPX files for two English landscape drives.
The final quotation and payment instructions will be sent after registration.
- Registration is confirmed after the final quotation is sent to the participant and approved and payed by the participant.
- Tickets for Silverstone Classic carry a COVID booking guarantee, which means that if Silverstone is prevented from allowing spectators at 2021 events due to Government guidelines, all ticket-buyers will have the option to either transfer their ticket to the following year or receive a full refund. These tickets are not refundable for any other reason.
- Free cancellation of the hotels is possible up to 10. July 2021.
- Free cancellation of the ferry crossing is possible until 48 hours in advance.
