Lotus Europa

By Stuart Tetlow

My father Eric Tetlow worked for Lebus from around 1968 to the mid-1980s as the North of England representative. I have many happy memories of all things Lebus that Eric told us about as children, particularly a competition for staff with the first prize being a brand new Lotus Europa sports car, which tied in with the Lebus Europa range, both products being fresh and exciting at the time.

Eric sadly passed away this year (2016). The group photo below was taken in 1973 and features (back from left to right) Walter Brayer, ‘Maz’ Maclean, Ken Bennett, Eric Tetlow, Alan Duffy, Fred Farley, Joe Beckett Ray Barton (sitting from left to right) Reg Holloway, Oliver Lebus and Jack Thomas.
