As a member of the Lotus Drivers Club you will get to see some fabulous places and drive some great cars but most importantly you’ll get to meet like-minded people that have a real passion for driving and all things Lotus.
The Lotus Drivers Club is proud to be a member of the MSA. The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is recognised as the sole motor sport governing body for the United Kingdom by the world governing body, the FIA.
Just a little more than a week to go, hope you’re all looking forward to it and got your Santa and Elf suits cleaned and ready? :o)
Otherwise I suggest dress, smart casual.
We can park on the front, not on the grass, (they’re worried about sinking in!) but on the old entrance drive, that continues past the carpark. I suggest diagonal parking?
Or use the normal carpark of course.
I know at least two couples are staying overnight, not wishing to break any data protection laws :o), but if you want to let us know who’s staying over for Saturday or Sunday (or both) we can try and arrange a get-together, with the ‘locals’. Maybe also post it on the forum if you are staying?
Arrive for 12.00 for aperitifs, meal is at 12.30.
The hotel have requested that we provide place name cards with your choices on for the waiters. please collect yours from me, if I haven't given you them.
See you next weekend.
Date change for the Silverstone Classic 2017
Yesterday (30 November 2016), the FIA ratified and released the FIA Formula 1 calendar for 2017 which included a surprise change to the British Grand Prix date, now confirmed as being the weekend of the 16th July - a week later than the provisional dates. Due to massive operational complexities it is impossible to hold the two largest annual events at Silverstone on consecutive weekends and so the confirmed date for the Silverstone Classic in 2017 is the weekend of the 28/29/30 July (a week later than our provisional dates).
For anyone that has bought their tickets already, these will obviously be valid for the revised dates and we look forward to seeing everyone a week later than originally planned. Anyone who bought tickets between the 5th November and 1st December 2016 and is now unable to attend the 2017 event due to the date change has until the 28th February to request a full refund on their tickets. Details have been sent to all ticket purchasers to let them know how to do this.
That's quite a list of booked events Rob and superb venues, I'll have to let you know the Prescott dates as it's fairly local to you also let you have the Welsh sprint and Hillclimb venues and dates. Spa with team Qmech would be a brilliant trip and Suzanne will have a great time driving there. I'm hoping she might like to share the Lotus Puma at a local Hillclimb or sprint if she can fit it into her schedule. And yes we must get together before Pembrokeshire Lotus is not SORN'd but I will avoid salt on roads and Puma is having a passenger seat so will be used on the road as well.
Sounds good Dave, be nice to catch up before Pembroke if we can. Hard to believe its been over a year! Well I'm not gonna have any spare time next year for those as I've already booked BTCC, Silverstone Classic, Revival, usual Lotus monthly runs, Oulton Gold Cup and a few track days in pipeline and possibly helping out Team Qmech again in the CSCC next year including Spa!
