About Us

Welcome to the home of Mk1, Mk11 and Crayford Lotus Cortinas

The Lotus Cortina Register was founded in 1979 by Phil Baskerville, and operated initially within Club Lotus. The LCR established itself as an independent club in 1980, and formed into a Company Limited by Guarantee in 1987.

The aim of the Register is to maintain records of Lotus Cortinas, provide help and assistance to owners and most importantly provide the motivation and means through which owners and enthusiasts can fully appreciate the cars.
