I am looking for information...written articles or photos on the Lotus Esprit that won the Australian Super Car Series in 1994. The car was driven by Brad Jones that year. The other drivers were 1995-Jim Zerefos and 1996-Paul Freestone. The cars was also driven by Larry Perkins in a 12 hour race at Bathurst in 1993. It may have a lap record at that track.

If you have information or photos contact me at: jimpen35633@yahoo.com

Thank you, Jim Pennington

Hey Jim how's the book going?  Have seen you on various other sites before chasing info - must have a good chunk of Esprit knowledge sussed out by now! :cool:

edit: according to AussieElises.com...

I recall that this car was campaigned by Jim Zerefos and Paul Freestone at various times. Paul should be pretty easy to track down, I think he has a transport business in Victoria and probably still runs a Healey 3000 in Targa Tasmania.

A white Esprit was campaigned during the 90's by Paul Stokel. The car was engineered by John Reece.

Call Andrew Smith at Lambo Aus:

He ran the car with Paul Stokell driving when he and his dad James held the Lotus agency for Australia.

I suppose I could be a nice chap and put you in touch with Jim Zerefos if you're not already...

What do you think guys? Am I a nice chap?  Hopefully you've already been in touch with him so I don't have to decide.  ;)

I have a 3 photos of Brad Jones #2 when the car was white and sponsored by Atlantis. I have two photos of the Jim Zerefos #5 car when it was painted blue over yellow over white and sponsored by Pioneer and Lipton. I have one photo of the Paul Freestone #14A sponsored by Freestone's used trucks and it has the same paint colors as the Jim Zerefos car. More photos would be great! Send them to my email:

I need copies of the race reports written by Chevron Publishing "Australian Motor Racing Year" 1993,1995 and 1996, I have the 1994 year.

I am really interested in any track stories or team stories that can be added to the book......

Technical information is needed on the early car.

By the way, I have been in touch with the engine builder in England.

Track records....Anything of interest.....

Flamestone, please put me in touch with Jim Zerefos......email would be great, phone number ok.

Thank you, Jim Pennington

He will probably be in touch with you shortly.

So what's it all about?  What exactly are you putting together?

The book will cover the 1990-1996 Championship seasons for the Lotus Esprit. It will include the Championships world wide.

Thanks, Jim
