    Hi from Lancashire a new Exige Owner

    Welcome to the forum and to the Lotus Drivers Club. Glad to hear you're already enjoying ownership and look forward to meeting you at an event this year. Eddie's suggestion about TRAX Donington on July 1st is a good shout. Let me know if you'd like to book.

    Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Drivetribe?

    Thanks John 😌
  4. We are pleased to be announced as the official insurance partner of the Lotus Drivers Club. Routen Chaplin was established in 1961 and has a long history of providing car club insurance schemes serving both individual members and the commercial insurance needs of the car clubs themselves. This is a bespoke Lotus scheme which incorporates many attractive features including a generous discount for LDC members combined with enhanced policy cover. Our core principal is of customer service and you will speak to a real person to discuss your needs, we are not a call centre! Our Lotus scheme provides cover for everything from a 60s Lotus to a new Evora and our flexible underwriting means we can add other vehicles to the policy, whether this be a trailer, motor- home, other classic cars or your daily transport. You will benefit from a multi vehicle discount which increases up to 25% as more cars are added to the policy. For your classic cars, agreed value policies are catered for by photograph only, no forms required or administration fees to pay. On modern Lotus we can tailor the cover and premium to your needs and allow discounts for, garaging, length of ownership, mileage etc. We can also allow an introductory discount to mirror the bonus on your normal car if the modern Lotus happens to be a new toy! In order to keep premiums as low as possible we do not offer track day cover. However, our generous discounts, flexibility and service may just be what you’re looking for. We are happy to answer queries or questions about insurance whether the policy is with ourselves or not and we will from time to time, provide articles or snippets for the magazine which we hope you will find informative and useful. If you want to know more or have any questions please contact Kim Eaton on 01159737842 or e-mail, kim.eaton@routenchaplin.co.uk

    Williams Open Day – Saturday 14 July 2018

    Hoping to go to this one again this year too although it clashes with another event in the Cotswolds. Maybe a breakfast meet at Williams and then up to the Open Gardens being organised in the Midlands for lunch time 🤨

    Renewing Membership.... I can't!?

    John, is the email address on the renewal email you received the correct one as this is different from the one you have registered on the forum? I have just tested the link which is in the renewal reminder (http://ldclub.uk/ldc-member) and this works ok for me. From here you can reset your password, providing you enter the email address/username which is on your record. Once you confirm your email address/username and choose a new password, you will be sent an email which needs to be actioned before logging in. Let me know if this doesn’t work.

    Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Drivetribe?

    All of the Clubs social media channels have played a large part in the Clubs recent success and increase in membership numbers so I can highly recommend following at least one of the fore mentioned channels, even if you don’t plan to use it personally. The Clubs Facebook Page is undoubtedly the most popular channel (almost 4k follow the page) and is used to publish detailed posts, updates, photos, events and news. This page is updated weekly by the Club and often daily in some cases. Instagram has been used more recently and is growing in popularity especially with those who have a keen interest in seeing Lotus related photos. The photos from the Clubs trip to France were published using Instagram and shared on Facebook. Instagram posts tend to be less informative. The Clubs Twitter account has a large audience and in fact is the largest Lotus club Twitter page in existence in the UK. Again this platform is favoured by some over Facebook and Instagram but personally it sits below these two. Unfortunately DriveTribe hasn’t really taken off since it’s initial launch. I hope this helps. Like I said I recommend following at least one of these Club social media channels and the Club is always after volunteers to help run them.
  12. A reminder for Saturday morning. Any questions before next weekend, please let me know. When arriving Saturday morning please ensure you enter the esplanade using the entrance opposite The Royal Hotel DT4 7AX (see map below). A member of the team will be on hand to direct you safely along the esplanade to our parking area in front of the Queen Victoria Jubilee Clock. We ask that everyone adheres to a 5 mph speed limit and to follow instructions from the Marshalls. There will be holiday makers with children and pets in close proximity so your cooperation is appreciated.
  13. I've had email confirmation from Beaulieu and have booked in at Ormonde House Hotel with Nico 🐶
  14. Hi Mark. Sounds like a good place to eat and from what I remember the food was great last time I stayed. I'd be happy to eat at the Poachers both Friday and Saturday nights so if you're offering please add myself and Tash to your existing booking.

This year there is a talk at 11am by Mr Richard Baron Shepard who raced and won class in a Morgan at Le Mans in 1962. This is set to be a really fun family event and as always in true Williams fashion, there will be refreshments all day. Williams Automobiles will be holding test drives, detailing demos, prizes for best turned out car, parts and service offers. Everyone is welcome so please do bring family and friends but due to catering needs please call Henry on 01454315112 or email henry@williamsautomobiles.com to book your place. There are normally over 100 in attendance so prior notice is great. See you there!
