A lucky Canaries fan could find themselves handed the keys to a limited edition Lotus.

Lotus Cars and Bridge Classic Cars have teamed up with Norwich City to offer the first Lotus Elite off the production line to a new home. 

The final edition Lotus Elise Sport 240 is one of a select few cars commemorating the end of the Lotus Elite after 25 years. 

And one lucky fan is being offered the chance to own the car after they take it for a spin on the Lotus test track at Hethel. 

All proceeds from the competition, which costs £9 to enter, will go to the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation (NCCSF) to support people with disabilities. 

City stars such as Todd Cantwell and Max Aarons took the cars around the test track during pre-season ahead of their Premier League campaign.

Lotus approached the foundation with the idea of the competition to help fundraising as a result of the company's connection with the Canaries, being the club's shirt sponsor for the 2021/22 season.

Television presenter and City fan Jake Humphrey presented the promotional video for the NCCSF competition, and could be heard roaring with excitement as he tested the sportscar himself.

Mr Wynne added: "Money raised from the car will help us to drive inclusion for people with disabilities, helping towards the cost of some of our programmes that allow people with disabilities to enjoy the benefits of sport.
