Thoroughbred Sunday saw an amazing mix of vintage beauties of all shapes and sizes descend on the Motor Circuit earlier this year. A spectacular way to get psyched up for the then-looming 2016 Goodwood Revival!

Video: Owning a Lotus 11
Does it get more thoroughbred than this? A purpose-built, aluminium-shod, aerospace-designed track weapon from Colin Chapman' Lotus heyday. This is a 1956 Lotus 11. The embodiment of the Lotus engineering ethos that has by and large gone unchanged to this day: Simplify, then add lightness. Its 1,500cc engine isn’t exactly a powerhouse, but the precision and slim hips of the 11 let the trashy four-pot do its best work. Watch, in the video above, as the owner proudly takes us around this stunning British Racing Green machine.
Does this remind anyone else of the awesome Lotus 23s from Revival?
