Prepared Lotus Elan race car

It’s a John Li autocross and/or vintage race car! It’s a 1969 Lotus Elan, and there’s a picture of the car competing at Nationals. I’ve never seen this car in action before, so perhaps this was before my time. More interesting is the fact that this car is local to me, yet I’ve never seen it out and about. Any fellow Michiganders able to fill in some details on the history of this car? https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1965-lotus-elan-2/
