236 Caterhams Create Giant Seven Logo

Last weekend, the members of the Lotus & Club in the UK held a special meeting, the Graham Nearn Memorial Blat.
In order to go on with the story, we must remind you that Graham Nearn is the man who brought back the design of the Lotus 7, released in 1957 by creating Caterham cars (the Caterham Seven debuted in 1973). Caterham Cars bought the rights to build the Seven after Colin Chapman, the chief designer for Lotus, decided to put the car out of production. Nearn passed away last year and the enthusiasts gathered to celebrate his work.
A total of 236 Caterham Sevens were arranged in a field at Stow Maries Aerodrome in Essex to create the famous Seven logo. The feat was captured in an aerial photograph.
