    exige v6 4th annual service

    No experience of the cost I'm afraid but Lotus Silverstone would be a good place to start.

    Just saying Hi

    Hi Jells, and welcome to the Lotus Drivers Club. The Series 2 Exige is a stunning piece of kit and a good investment, especially a 240 👌

    2019 MSVR Elise Trophy

    Good news to start the new year – the long-standing Elise Trophy championship continues in 2019. The Elise Trophy was the first series to be launched in conjunction with MotorSport Vision Racing, and its inaugural race took place at Brands Hatch on Saturday 24th March 2007. The Elise Trophy was awarded championship status at the end of the 2013 season. During its early years the Elise Trophy was arguably the highest profile club race series in the UK with it supporting numerous top class events including DTM, World Touring Cars and A1GP, while the championship’s own annual event ‘The Lotus Festival’ was even supported by the Formula 1 team of the day with Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli both driving classic Lotus F1 cars. Other guest drivers have included the world’s fastest man – Wing Commander Andy Green OBE, BBC1 F1 Presenter Jack Humphreys and ex-F1 Lotus racer Martin Donnelly who returned to a Lotus race car in the Elise Trophy back in 2007 and has competed in numerous races since. Even MSVR’s very own Motorsport Events Manager David Willey has featured on the podium! The Elise Trophy grew from Lotus on Track, the UK’s largest track day club. The Lotus on Track Racing Drivers Club (LoTRDC) was formed to create a race series for Lotus Elise owners, and aims to carry the track day principles to the starting grid. LoTRDC now runs the FIA International Series – Lotus Cup Europe (www.lotuscupeurope.com). From the 2019 season MotorSport Vision Racing will run the MSVR Elise Trophy promising to provide a safe, friendly, fair and financially viable series for those wishing to progress from track days into racing. Championship regulations will be available from this page very soon. In the meantime it has been confirmed that Road Race Rally Engineering will be the official power testers for 2019, as they are with Lotus Cup Europe. 2019 Provisional calendar: 7 April– Donington National 18 May – Cadwell Park 30 June – Silverstone National 28 July – Snetterton 300 7 September – Brands Hatch GP 21/22 September – Donington Park GP Find out more at www.msvracing.com

The Motor Show will include some new features this year and is accompanied by up to 600 vintage and classic cars, American, kit & custom, motorcycles and commercial vehicles plus club stands, trade and autojumble stands. Our team of judges will be in attendance to select our concours winners with an award ceremony taking place in the arena at 4pm. Live arena with parades during the day, ‘Pride of Ownership’ award. Daily Driver competition open to all plus the now famous ‘Decibel Duel’ where we find the loudest motor on display each day!

    New member, first Lotus

    Welcome and congratulations on the collection of your stunningly spec’d Exige. I caught the post on Facebook by Newtown Lotus. It reminds me a lot of the spec Seb Delanney chose on his 380, I love the unique fine details on both cars. Look forward to meeting you in Pembrokeshire if not before, especially as you’re just down the road from me.

    Lotus Christmas Presents

    Yes, they seem narrow very similar to my old Piloti’s and still have the curved heel design which I like. Tried them on at the NEC and found the 9 1/2 to be a good fit, also the same as my previous ones. I’ve not tried them out in the car yet but I’m liking the tanned leather.
