  2. Evening Chris. Of course, I didn't realise it was up for sale again... drop me an email at c.jones@lotusdriversclub.org.uk and I can let you know the history of the car as far as I know it, including the servicing πŸ‘Œ
  3. That's a shame but I suppose as it became increasingly popular this was bound to happen πŸ‘Ž Just think how much space they'll benefit from without 90% of the Porsche owners there πŸ˜‚ Hopefully this won't be the case the their Super Scramble in the summer.
  4. Thanks for sorting this Eddie. What a wonderful addition to our summer calendar β˜€οΈ
  5. Sounds great Eddie, just what we need to put something back on the calendar for August. Drop me a message once we're confirmed as being invited and any booking details πŸ‘Œ

  7. Silverstone Lotus offered me a good sale or return rate and Howards Lotus are always on the look out for cars to buy, as a most dealers I believe.
  8. The Club had asked Ian Rymer (Wessex Organiser) to run this event for us this year but when he spoke to Beaulieu, they said that only top of the range Evoras and Exiges would qualify for β€œSupercar” status and all other models would be excluded. We have therefore taken the decision that the Club will not be having an official presence at the show this year due to the high level of exclusion for most of our members. Any member is, of course, entitled to attend the show under his own steam but there will be no LDC stand πŸ‘Ž
  9. Sunday 5 May 2019 Members are invited to meet at 9:00am for a morning coffee at The Friendly Farmer, located at Winthorpe, close to Newark Showground. We will be leaving the Friendly Farmer at 9.45am to arrive at 11.15am at the British Motor Museum where display parking has been arranged for members. There will be an organised tour for members at 11.45am lasting approximately 45 minutes. The Junction 12 Cafe serves a delicious range of hot and cold meals, snacks and drinks. Click here to view a sample menu. After lunch at 1.30pm there will be a Collection Centre tour, again lasting approximately 45 minutes, after which you are free to look around the museum until it closes. Members who wish to visit the museum but not participate on the run are welcome to make their own way to join us at the museum for 11.15am. The cost is Β£13.00 per person and is inclusive of the two Club tours. There are only 20 places available so please confirm your attendance as soon as possible by emailing g.cobley@lotusdriversclub.org.uk. The closing date for entries is 31 March 2019.

  11. Yes, the Club gets a special rate for parking in Saundersfoot Harbour for the weekend. Will post a link to book in the next few weeks hopefully. Watch this space.

  14. Thanks for this Kim. It looks like those of us traveling at the end of April will be needing International Driving Permits from the PO: https://www.postoffice.co.uk/international-driving-permit. Another useful page of the Gov.uk site: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/prepare-to-drive-in-the-eu-after-brexit Will be on this ready for February 1st when applications will open for IDP's.
  15. Hi Tony and welcome to the Lotus Drivers Club πŸ‘‹
  16. No experience of the cost I'm afraid but Lotus Silverstone would be a good place to start.
  17. 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 πŸ‘Œ
  18. Hello and welcome to the Lotus Drivers Club, it's great to hear we've been recommended 😎 Keep an eye on the website/social media pages for news about upcoming events. Details of the Clubs attendance at this years Beaulieu Supercar Weekend in August will be available soon. As Kim mentioned above, Ian Rymer runs a very active Wessex Group for LDC (they also have a Facebook group). Look forward to meeting you during 2019.
  19. Regretted not making it today but I need to get the car MOT'd else I would have slapped some tax on it. A fantastic turn-out for a new year event and also great to see the PR department from Lotus and Howards Lotus attending the day alongside the Club πŸ‘
