    Maybe they could create a single-make racing series with the Circuit Car.

    Yes, like the one they did with the Elise Motorsport S1. For promotional purposes only.
    Minimising losses can maximise net gains

    Yes, my idea was to promote not only the car but the brand too. They could even make it outside the UK to have a greater impact, or maybe a European series.

    I don't no whether Lotus would be keen on moving away from using the Elise and Exige for the Lotus racing series' around the world. I think it might be a tad to established to take a change, and it's a good series, with the use of the Elise/Exige allowing them to have 3(?) different classes within a series

    Well the Circuit Car is based in the Elise so it's not that different. Plus in my opinion it would be better to replace the Elise/Exige for something more purposely developed for the track. Because if not, what was the point of the Circuit Car?

    Probably to cash in on the massive boom on trackday cars
