Lotus and the genius of Colin Chapman have been at the forefront of racing technology and automotive design since 1948.  Colin Chapman’s philosophy of light weight and efficiency of design resulted in  7 Formula 1 World Championships as well as wins at Le Mans, and Indianapolis , saloon car racing and the World Rally Championship.  Chapman’s mantras of simplification, light weight and the least amount of parts effectively deployed that went into his racing car design were directly translated into Lotus’ road cars and produced iconic machines such as the Seven, Elan, Esprit, and Elise. The rest of the automotive world are finally realizing that horsepower makes you fast in the straights, but light weight makes you faster everywhere – and more fuel efficient to boot!

For over 60 years Lotus has continued to produce class-leading  sports cars and are a globally respected automotive engineering consultancy, working with many of the world’s most prestigious car manufacturers.

This exhibit will feature a variety of Lotus models throughout that 60 year history.

JPM Racing/ Pa. Rallies and “After the Rain”
After the Rain is an organization of non-profit   established in March of 2014, after Arianne had lost her husband to suicide in February 2014. Striking out to heal herself and her Daughter on their own she realized there’s not many outlets for assistance in healing or support groups to have a shoulder to cry on after such a loss especially for a child. She set her sights to correct that injustice and created the group, After the Rain, to assist children and families whom must endure the pain and burden through such a time. The crusade is never ending and daunting but with a big heart and a drive to establish a network for assistance the organization is making huge strides even in such a short time to lend a hand. From attendance at many regional events providing face painting and games has been the bread and butter to light the fires for the organization.
JPM Racing and Pa Rallies is a group of individuals many look at as a team. Established in Sept. 2010 with its focus to attend various types of events, promote various styles of events all the while reuniting the “Family” back into the motorsports. Take a child to a Car Show, Drag Race, Road Race or Rally and lighting the fires of interest is always a healthy drug to provide the child with and seeing the teamwork that goes on at various events, similar to the unit of Family, the children will absorb that and share it in the future with their kids but also with their peers breeding good clean wholesome fun and now, joining forces, After the Rain alongside with JPM Racing & Pa Rallies together we will tie together the hobby that is grass root based in Family oriented events and unity, to take it to the next level and provide those outlets for consolation, assistance, healing and future all in a pretty package!  For Information, to join or contribute, please contact the group of interest below.. Thank you and God Bless!
