In the early 1980’s, pre-eminent Lotus Elan racer Tony Thompson (Tony Thompson Racing) made contact with Kelvin Smith (KS Composites) looking for a minor repair to be effected to his Lotus.
Soon Tony was back looking for restoration of his newly purchased Elan 26R. As Tony’s racing progressed, he soon realised there was a dearth of spares available and so, began manufacturing parts for his own requirements. His fastidious approach to quality soon saw other competitors in the paddock approaching him for parts for themselves.
Kelvin had now created a complete set of mould tools to enable them to not only remanufacture complete Lotus Elan bodies, but also the specific competition variants and myriad options amongst these.
Many decades passed and Tony and Tony Thompson Racing are the go-to experts, purveyors of all things Elan whilst KS Composites values them as their longest standing and first client. Long may this winning partnership continue.
