In episode #49 your host, Chris Broome, interviews Matthew Haskins, Managing Director at Lotus Silverstone.

Listen as Matthew explains his journey spanning Arcadia Group, Land Rover, Audi, Ferrari, Maserati, to present day Lotus; and how today he runs one of the leading Lotus dealerships in Europe.

We also talk through Lotus’ growth plans under their new Chinese owner; what life is like working on Silverstone Park and now based out of shinny new premises; with Chris asking the most important of questions – are Lotus’s designed for the taller driver?!
