  2. Lotus Evora Lotus Sport Exhaust LOTAC05504. This is a non valved performance stage 1 exhaust upgrade from Lotus (manufactured by janspeed) Pre-owned exhaust which I took off my car when I purchased a Evora S exhaust its in good condition with blue flame titanium tips £450
  3. Ferry deposit now paid so we are definitely going to Ireland. Something to really look forward to😀
  4. Last week
  5. Ah good old electrickery. Always worth checking earth straps have good connection to the chassis with no corrosion present and fixings are tight. Also worth checking battery connections are good too. HTH
  6. Sold to that man in the Exige S Club Racer! Broadway Tower (WR12 7LB) - 6 April 2019 - midday(ish) for informal pre-AGM meet up 👍
  7. Mark I really like the idea of Broadway Tower as you say intriguing and somewhere we’ve never been. So shall we be decisive and declare this the appointed meeting place for around mid day on April 6th. Cheers Dave
  8. Hi Del / Colin we have also now booked the Premiere Travel Inn in Bangor. Next job is to sort out the ferry. cheers Dave & Sian
  9. Low battery and loose alternator belt (or bad electrical path somewhere resulting in massive current drop) Angus tells me you should look at .
  10. Thanks Del We have also booked the Premier Inn Bangor for the Friday night Cheers Colin&Tracy
  11. Have a 89 carb Esprit Turbo. Is in storage over winter months but is started regularly & taken for a spin. Anyhow, jumped in this afternoon, let engine idle for while. All seems fine until I switch on rear screen heater. Immediately all gauges stop working and red engine light comes on! Yikes! I switch engine off straight away, check engine oil level and it's fine. No oil leaks evident underneath. Hadn't time to look into today, but it's an odd one isn't it?
  12. David - I don't think Bicester Heritage is generally open to the public. You either need to have made an appointment (to see one of the on site classic car specialists) or for there to be an event on. Which there isn't that Saturday. The Motor Museum at Gaydon is definitely worth a visit but with admission costing £14.50 pp we'd need to give ourselves a good couple of hours to make it worthwhile including tea & cake. An earlier suggestion made to me is Broadway Tower (thx Andy) - https://broadwaytower.co.uk/ - which might also tick all the boxes in terms of being (reasonably) equidistant, not too far from Leamington, on site cafe and...intriguing!

  14. Hi Colin/David, I've booked the Premier inn Bangor. They had a good deal for an early booking👍
  15. Yes Del going to stay in the premier travel inn in Bangor it’s right alongside the bridge to Anglesey
  16. Hi Del We were thinking of staying somewhere nearby, maybe Colwyn Bay or North Wales somewhere? Colin
  17. Anyone staying up on the Friday night and any ideas on good places to stay?

  19. Earlier
  20. Much as Chedworth is intriguing I fully understand it is a fair way west to then have to drive up to Leamington. I’m presuming that travelling from London way you’d ideally use the M40 so after consulting my very big AA road atlas I’ve had two further thoughts to meet up around mid day, both just off the M40. The two are the Bicester Heritage Centre or Gaydon Motor Museum. Both would be roughly a 3 1/2 hour drive for us and I’m sure could provide tea and cakes (chocolate cake preferably)
  21. Tickets booked for this one. Have only ever been to Shelley once to spectate and never competed there so really looking forward to meeting everyone there.
  22. Good to hear on both counts, David! Chedworth sounds intriguing but for us further to travel westwards so we'd need to be sensible on timings. I presume as it's a National Trust property you pay the admission fee even if you just want a cup of tea and a slice of cake?
  23. Liking the Elans is that Colin’s up for sale .
  24. Mark we’ve booked the Holiday Inn and confirmed with Andy our evening out. Believe it or not even going to be bringing the Lotus. A thought for Saturday meet up how about a bit of history and meeting up at Chedworth Roman Villa near Northleach.
  25. Hi Gee welcome to LDC I’m afraid I’m one of the S2 mob but I just love the S1 Elise it’s just pure Lotus. Talking of driving adventures we still have places left on the Pembrokeshire gathering, not too far from Oxfordshire😀. Would be great to see you were you to be able to join us. cheers Dave
