With over 40 specialist motoring businesses situated in a jaw-dropping location, this is an open day event unlike any other. See inside the workshops and showrooms at the freshly restored historic buildings of the former RAF Bicester, explore the unique site and take in its evocative atmosphere. Taking place on a Sunday morning, this event encourages historic motoring enthusiasts to get involved and bring their pre-1990 vehicle to join the eclectic display. From commercials to motorcycles, pre-War, veterans and modern classics, the mix is astonishing and ever changing. Nestled in-between the 1920s RAF buildings and tree-lined avenues, this location has a filmset quality and a buzz that is truly unique. Family friendly and laid back, the Scramble is a wonderful way to while away the hours on a Sunday morning in the company of some spectacular machines at the best-preserved WW2 RAF Bomber Station in the country.

  2. Welcome @Jordan90 and congratulations on your recent purchase. I remember that exact same feeling when I got my 06 Exige S (Chrome Orange) several years ago. It's a car you're going to enjoy and they are such great value at the moment and likely to hold their value well too. Look forward to meeting you Jordan. Have you considered joining us in Cumbria (clicky) in April?
  3. That's ok, I like being organised as well. To answer your question, yes, I believe @A7ESK has registered the club so as soon as we receive the booking details I'll get them posted up. Reckon it'll be a popular meeting this one.

  6. Yorkshire Lotus Drivers Club / Lotus Seven Club This is my inaugural welcome message to members of the LDC in N E Yorkshire region since agreeing with Colin Smith to take on the role of AR for the region. This, of course, is part of the collaboration of two car clubs, the LDC and the Lotus 7 Club, and, as joint AR for the N E Yorks area of the Lotus 7 Club, taking on the LDC role seemed a sensible thing to do. I've just sent out my regular monthly reminder to the 7 Club members of our monthly meeting and I hope that you will join us. The next one (always the 3rd Wednesday each month) is Wednesday 15th January 2020. It's held at the Gold Cup Inn, Low Catton, YO41 1EA. This is central to the members in our area at present, better for some than others of course. We tend to gather at 7'ish onwards, most eat, but it's not obligatory. There's usually upwards of 20 of us, plenty of couples, we're not a group of "beards" standing at the bar and are quite a sociable lot. I'm afraid this time of year our 7s are tucked in the garage and we resort to the tintop, although MX5s make an appearance. Just take it steady over the speed bumps on the pub drive if you come in something sporty. Just a couple of words of introduction. As a retired "old boy" I came late to the 7 party, but now have 2. A 270R ex-academy car used for track and sprints and a CSR200 for touring. We also have a 2006 Lotus Europa S, and I've been a member of LDC for a few years now, as well as Club Lotus. In my youth I've had an Elan+2, Europa TwinCam and (he says with tears in his eyes) an early Lotus Cortina. My car enthusiasm is mirrored by my wife who is current, but soon due to relinquish, chair of the 7 Club. I've been joint AR for this region with Adrian for the last couple of years. I've a few friends with Lotus running through their core and have been to various meetings in and around our area over the years, so we might have already met. This may not be the best time of year to meet up, but let's see how it goes. It will be good to get to know you. Roger Abbott Lotus 7 Club - Yorkshire
  7. Newlands Corner Breakfast Meeting - Third Sunday of each month from 9:00am Facebook Event Join us at the popular Newlands Corner Breakfast Meeting for some of the finest bacon rolls around. In collaboration with SELOC, this regular third Sunday of the month event has been running for 10 years and is a chance to gather with like-minded enthusiasts and a cross section of Lotus models. This is an informal gathering with no organised runs, just a chance to chat, look at the cars, take in the views and meet new friends. Join us from 9.00am at Newlands Corner when the cafe opens for bacon rolls. There is a charge for parking. The first 20 mins are free (although you still need to get a ticket) then £1.30 an hour. Payment by credit/debit card or mobile phone (extra fees apply) but not cash. To get the free 20 minutes press the green button on the ticket machine before entering payment.

  8. Kent and East Sussex - Lotus Drivers Club / Lotus Seven Club Following some recent announcements of the collaboration between LDC and the Lotus Seven Club (L7C), I’d like to introduce myself, and issue a couple of open invitations. I’m Ian Bruce and I’m the East Sussex Area Representative (AR) for the L7C. I’m also the L7C link contact with the LDC for Kent and East Sussex. There are several L7C Areas that include parts of Kent and East Sussex, details of which can be found on the L7C website. Several of us attend more than one area meet, and they vary according to how the AR wishes to run them. All are generally very welcoming and sociable, are held in pubs on a weekday evening, and at most the majority most people have a meal from the pub menu whilst nattering about cars, and plenty of other topics! It’s fair to say most L7C members have Caterhams, and not many (if any sometimes) turn up in Sevens during the winter, as the meets are more of an excuse for a natter and social gathering. The East Sussex meeting I organise is held on the second Tuesday of the month at the Yew Tree Inn, Chalvington, BN27 3TB. People arrive from about 7pm and some are still there at closing time! So the first invitation is to come along and say 'Hi' at the next L7C ES meeting on Tuesday 14th January at the Yew Tree Inn. It would be good to meet up with some other Lotus Drivers, and also discuss how we can help each other with events, trips and meets for the coming year. The North Kent area meet is held at The Woodman, Ide Hill, TN14 6BU, and the AR Richard Brunero would be pleased to welcome any LDC members there from their Tuesday 4th February meet onwards. You may also see me there as well from time to time! I’m also involved in 'Kent 7s', which is not part of the Lotus 7 Club, but organises various 'blats', trips to car shows, events at Brands Hatch (often with hospitality), and trips further afield such as Le Mans Classic. It could well be that K7s can work with LDC members on these, and hopefully there will be LDC events that we can also participate in, so bring your diaries and ideas along on the 14th! As this is the first 'joint' meeting, if you’d like to come along please can you let me know so I can give the pub an idea of numbers for food. Finally, on the 14th we’ll be having an informal “Seven Swap” where you can bring along car related presents or raffle prizes that you don’t need, and can swap, sell or give them away to others at the meeting. Feel free to bring anything along, ideally marked with a price if you’d like to sell it, and we’ll see what turns up! Hopefully this has whetted your appetite for 2020 and Happy New Year to you all. Ian Bruce Lotus 7 Club - East Sussex

  10. Me too. Hopefully we won't have a repeat of the stormy weather from last year. I think we're planning on doing this on the way up to Cumbria for the weekend

    Evening Robin. We are still in discussions with the organisers for CarFest South in regards to the clubs attendance this year. As soon as we have the club booking information available it will be published on the website, here and in Chicane. I'd like to hope this will be within the next month or two.

They provide a driving experience where like-minded enthusiasts can drive their cars through beautiful scenery on some of the best driving roads enjoying great company along the way.
