  1. Yesterday
  2. Hello LDC, I hope that you are all well, and stay well. I am after some ideas/advice.... I have a Lucas 43D distributor with Lumenition optical inners on the Esprit S1 907 engine. Oil escapes from the distributor shaft and onto the engine. I dont recall ever seeing a seal in the shaft, so assume that a decent seal was made previously by the distributor clamp. I purchased a distributor shaft oil seal from SJSportsCars but have since been informed that these seals will only fit with an original Lotus spec distributor. I also purchased a new robust distributor clamp. Any ideas of whether I can get this "original" spec seal to fit, or any seal, or is there is a tried and tested way to prevent oil leakage? I look forward to hearing from someone.

  5. I see they have now extended the early bird offer until the end of April.... https://www.silverstoneclassic.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIh73qxLi66AIVg7HtCh3D0QsfEAAYASAAEgISPfD_BwE
  6. & i know we'll meet again some sunny day
  7. We have had to cancel Angelsey, the accommodation got cancelled and Jules is on the "at risk" list so she's in for 12 weeks now. MSV have closed their circuits and I guess others might follow soon. LOT refunded entry fee very quickly, top class. We'll meet again, don't know where don't know when. (One for the oldies) Kim
  8. Apparently those people that booked on to this event should receive an email in due course. I'm sure Dave will update us shortly.
  9. Earlier
  10. Update from SC yesterday evening: https://us12.campaign-archive.com/?u=a066739e707c33b06deacd912&id=0c3fc64470 No change to the EB end date then (31 March) and no mention refunds in the event of full cancellation. As you imply, Fangio246, the organisers have or may have already paid some/all of the circuit hire cost to Silverstone....
  11. Hi I have a black long tail hood in immaculate condition from a 18k miles 2001 S2. I estimate it was on the car for no more than 1000 miles. £550.
  12. Car now sold. Big thank you to all those who contacted me.
  13. Gutted that this has been postponed but totally understand. What plans are there to re-schedule? I need to change the dates of my hotel booking or cancel it altogether.
  14. I spoke to LOT yesterday as I saw on their website that Hethel track day has been cancelled, they say UK track days should be ok. I suppose we are all just waiting to see what happens from here on. Kim
  15. I see they are currently sticking to the Le Mans Classic dates. Hope that goes ahead as I'm going in a Porsche convoy.... At least I'm hoping to See Tickets, who are responsible for Silverstone Classic (NOT Silverstone themselves) are a bit vague on refunds.
  16. Wasn't planning on going this year (so feel free to ignore me!) but if I were I'd leave booking early bird until the last minute. Admissions tickets never run out. They've announced today Le Mans 24 moved to mid-September. And the Classic nowadays relies on the F1 circuit infrastructure being in place. So that still needs to happen as per schedule.
  17. Go for it....nothing to lose....you’ll get a full refund if it doesn’t go ahead anyway.
  18. Hi All Are club members still thinking they are going to take advantage of the early bird discount available to 31st March, or hang on and see what happens? Interested in your thoughts on this?
  19. Just spotted this statement on the Curborough website - https://www.curborough.co.uk/corona-virus/ Shame the event won’t happen as planned but obviously it’s for a very good reason. If there are any plans to rearrange the event for later in the year please let me know.
  20. Wye Valley / Cumbrian / Pembrokeshire Driving Adventures The Wye Valley, Cumbrian and Pembrokeshire Driving Adventures, which were due to take place during the months of April and May, have unfortunately been postponed. Members who have booked for these weekends will be contacted individually.
  21. Practical Classics Restoration Show With the rapid development of the Covid-19 pandemic and after extensive discussions with all the show’s partners, Clarion Events Ltd has taken the difficult decision to postpone the forthcoming Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show, with Discovery. Clarion Events Ltd is working with the NEC to find suitable options to reschedule the event. Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date. Further updates will be issued once the organisers have more information to share. Ticket holders are advised to check the website and social media channels as well as monitor their inbox for newsletters. Lee Masters, Show Director, said: “The wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is paramount. Therefore, we have taken the decision to postpone the event. This is an unprecedented situation and we ask for patience as we transition to the new date.” Sunday Scramble – Bicester Heritage Bicester Heritage has the made decision to postpone the next Scramble, due to be held on the 26 April, to a new date on the 21 June 2020. It was our intention to hold the second edition of our Super Scramble at Bicester Heritage on the 21 June, however this event will now be postponed until 20th June 2021, allowing us to hold the rescheduled April Scramble in its place. The nature of our Scramble and Super Scramble events, attracting more than 6,500 enthusiasts of all ages from across the UK and abroad, means that the postponement of these ever-popular events is the most appropriate decision to take at this time. Bicester Heritage is disappointed not to be able to go ahead with the original dates as planned, and we know that the rescheduling of both events will be sad news for the many event supporters who had made plans to attend, both enthusiasts and exhibitors alike. However, we feel that this is the best course of action at this juncture and we look forward to welcoming you to Bicester Heritage on the new event dates. At this time, our offices in The Station Armoury remain open and for the foreseeable future we will endeavour to continue with ‘business as usual’. We wish it to be known that the safety of our event attendees, specialists, exhibitors and traders is of paramount importance to Bicester Heritage and we will continue to closely monitor this unprecedented situation closely. Bicester Heritage wishes to reassure all Scramble Pass holders (purchased for the 26 April) that their current Passes will allow entry to the Scramble on the new date of 21 June 2020. If you would like to login to your Eventbrite account to check your Passes, please click here. If you are unable to attend the new Scramble date then you are entitled to a full refund. Refunds can be requested up until Saturday 13 June 2020. Should you wish your Pass to be refunded, please follow the steps set out by Eventbrite by clicking here.
  22. Updated 16 March 2020 - https://ldclub.uk/covid-19 Like many responsible organisations that organise and attend events, we are in the process of reviewing our event calendar for 2020 and making contingency plans around the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The Lotus Drivers Club remains committed to following the latest UK Government advice on events and public gatherings. Current government and public health advice states that all, non-essential social contact with other people should be avoided for the foreseeable future. We are also being advised to avoid pubs, which of course is a popular venue for many of our local club group meetings. Those at risk or with underlying health issues are being advised to self-isolate for a period of 12 weeks. Therefore, we are advising all local area groups and organisers to cancel or postpone their monthly meetings and local club events for the foreseeable future, in line with government advice. We urge you to watch the Lotus Drivers Club website and the advice links below for up to date information. We have a number of elderly members amongst us. If you know of any in your local LDC area, why not drop them an email or give them a call to chat Lotus for a while and make sure they have all they need. For those with underlying health issues, the next 12 weeks is likely to be a long and potentially lonely time. Also, don’t forget that members can keep in touch via our club forum and social media pages. For more information on COVID-19 visit www.who.int To view UK Government advice visit: www.gov.uk For NHS information visit: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ As our volunteer organisers announce their move to postpone or cancel certain events, we please ask that members support them in the decision. We will continue to monitor and follow the latest public health and government advice and encourage all members to maintain good levels of hygiene. We all have a part to play in minimising the spread of any kind of illness and we hope that none of this stops you driving your Lotus in 2020.
  23. With all that’s happening right now sad to say breakfast meets at Hilltop farm postponed . regards Edward King .
  24. SCRAMBLE AND SUPER SCRAMBLE EVENTS POSTPONED TO NEW DATES To our valued supporters, motoring enthusiasts and community, Bicester Heritage has been actively monitoring governmental and WHO advice regarding the development of Coronavirus COVID-19 over the past weeks.
