  1. I believe you can book as many tickets/runs as you like yes but the runs are limited to 50mph I'm afraid as it's 'non competitive'.
  2. Sunday 12 July 2020 Prescott Speed Hill Climb, Cheltenham GL52 9RD, UK We are pleased to share that members of the Lotus Drivers Club are invited to the historical hill at Prescott for a Drive Thru Day on Sunday 12 July. Tickets are on sale with 4 time slots available to experience a run up the hill in your Lotus. We look forward to seeing you there and urge everyone attending to follow the latest advice to ‘Remain Alert and Safe’. We must remain mindful of our own safety and be vigilant on the impact of our actions on others. Find out more and book tickets at www.prescotthillclimb.co.uk About the Event In order to comply with social distancing requirements the format has changed, with the whole event being based on a drive thru format and hopefully, a socially distant picnic area on the Ettores banking area. There will be four time slots when you can arrive and drive up the hill. These slots are: 08:30 Event Opens 09:00-11:00 This is the Early Morning slot. Tickets for runs up the hill are marked ‘Early Morning’ 11:00-13:00 This is the Late Morning slot. Tickets for runs up the hill are marked ‘Late Morning’ Lunch break 14:00-15:30 This is the Early Afternoon slot. Tickets for runs up the hill are marked ‘Early Afternoon’ 15:30-17:00 This is the Late Afternoon slot. Tickets for runs up the hill are marked ‘Late Afternoon’. 17:00 Event Closes Food and Drink These will need to be booked at the time that you book your tickets and paid for in advance. You will be issued tickets for your food which will need to be produced between 11am and 4pm at the fish and chip unit within the paddock. Luxury picnic hampers and afternoon tea for two from the Paddock Cafe are also available. Again this will need to be pre-booked and paid when you book your hill runs in advance. Tea and Coffee will also be available from the Paddock Cafe, but for purchase on the day.
  3. I'll keep you updated. I reckon we should be able to get something booked for August/September
  4. As a consequence of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, will now be postponed to 26-28 March 2021. Everyone involved in putting the show together is extremely disappointed that the ultimate restoration experience will not be brought to the community this year. However, the health and well-being of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is of the upmost importance. With the government’s roadmap suggesting that restrictions on movement will still be in place for some time, it is therefore the right decision for us to cease planning for an event of this size and importance in August. We will now be putting all our efforts into delivering an extra special restoration show in 2021 and a fantastic meeting of the community for our flagship event, the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, in November. Clarion Events is working with other event organisers, venues and government to develop guidelines on how to deliver the best versions of our events while ensuring the health and safety of all involved. We will update you further on the measures we are putting in place in due course. Visitor ticket options: For those of you that have bought tickets to the 2020 edition of Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, you have a number of options to transfer your tickets. You have the choice of transferring your tickets to one of the following events in our motor show portfolio: • 2021 edition of the Classic Car & Restoration Show, 26-28 March 2021 • Classic Motor Show, 13-15 November 2020 – visit the website for more information • Race Retro, 19-21 February 2021 – visit the website for more information What to do next: If you wish to transfer your tickets to Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show 2021 you don’t need to do anything! Your booking will be carried over automatically to the equivalent ticket on the corresponding date next year. As a thank you for continuing to support the show we will also credit your booking with an extra adult day ticket* so you can introduce a friend or loved one to the joys of the event! If you wish to change the day of your new Restoration Show 2021 ticket/s please contact practicalclassicsshow@seetickets.com. This can be done at any time up until tickets are dispatched next year. If you wish to transfer your ticket to the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery or Reis Race Retro please email practicalclassicsshow@seetickets.com with your request. Please ensure you have contacted the team before 1 September if you wish to take up either of these two options. All new tickets will be sent out in the month prior to the show you are transferring to, either as print at home or hard copy tickets, as you have specified in your current booking.
  5. We promised you an update before the end of May… and it is with a heavy heart that we bring you news that the 2020 Silverstone Classic will not be going ahead. Following the latest Government advice, we have reached the inevitable conclusion that we will need to cancel this year’s event. Given the current circumstances and the outlook on timescales, a postponed event – which was our original back-up plan – in a way that enables us to run the Classic in the manner that you know and love isn’t a feasible option. Our priority at all times is the safety and wellbeing of those attending our events as well as our own team and we know that you’ll understand why this step has been necessary. Our heartfelt thanks must go to all of you for your patience throughout this period of uncertainty. As an independent events company passionate about what we do, we are proud to have developed the Silverstone Classic into an internationally renowned historic motorsport festival enjoyed across generations of car enthusiasts, families, racing drivers, and petrolheads. In times of difficulty, communities tend to come together and we’re incredibly grateful for your continued support. It means a lot. All of you are what makes the event the success that it is and we hope to celebrate our 30th anniversary with you next year instead. 2020 tickets Anyone who has a ticket will have the option to roll their tickets over to the 2021 event or request a full refund. There are a number of measures we need to put in place first, but we will be back in touch with all ticket buyers in June with details of the next steps. In light of the current situation, we have a reduced team who are dealing with a high number of enquiries, so please do bear with us. We’ll be in touch soon. In the meantime, and above all else, stay safe and healthy. With our best wishes, The Silverstone Classic Team Our FAQs have been updated here.
  6. Thanks Alan. It's good to see track events are beginning to reopen with the necessary precautions in place. I'm looking forward to helpfully being able to book something for the end of the summer. Maybe Hethel or Anglesey with LoT?
  7. JUNE SCRAMBLE MOVED TO 4TH OCTOBER We hope that you are keeping well and staying safe at home. Due to the current circumstances, we have decided to move our June Scramble to October and to hold another virtual event on 21st June. We feel that this is the right thing to do as we enter the next phase of the ‘new normal’ and all continue to pull together to bring an end to these abnormal times. Our April Stay Home Scramble was a huge success with in excess of 1000 vehicles from vintage Bugattis to WW2 tanks shared by enthusiasts through our Facebook and Instagram channels. We hope to inspire the same classic motoring activity from home once more. In the meantime, the videos on our Instagram IGTV page are a must-see for enthusiasts keen to learn more about Bicester Heritage and its past and they can be found here http://ow.ly/Sr4B50zzRjK If you have any questions or requests do send them through to us and we look forward to sharing our next virtual event with you soon. We are also planning some socially distanced events and will be in touch as soon as we can with further details. Bicester Heritage wishes to reassure all Scramble Pass holders (purchased for the 26th April and now the 21st June) that their current Passes will allow entry to the next Scramble on the new date of 4th October. If you are unable to attend the new Scramble date then you are entitled to a full refund. Refunds can be requested up until seven days before the event is held. Should you wish your Pass to be refunded, please follow the steps set out by Eventbrite. On behalf of all at Bicester Heritage, do take care, and please ensure that care and compassion for one another remain at the forefront of all our minds.
  8. Wye Valley / Cumbrian / Pembrokeshire Driving Adventures The Wye Valley, Cumbrian and Pembrokeshire Driving Adventures, which were due to take place during the months of April and May, have unfortunately been postponed. Members who have booked for these weekends will be contacted individually.
  9. Practical Classics Restoration Show With the rapid development of the Covid-19 pandemic and after extensive discussions with all the show’s partners, Clarion Events Ltd has taken the difficult decision to postpone the forthcoming Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show, with Discovery. Clarion Events Ltd is working with the NEC to find suitable options to reschedule the event. Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date. Further updates will be issued once the organisers have more information to share. Ticket holders are advised to check the website and social media channels as well as monitor their inbox for newsletters. Lee Masters, Show Director, said: “The wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is paramount. Therefore, we have taken the decision to postpone the event. This is an unprecedented situation and we ask for patience as we transition to the new date.” Sunday Scramble – Bicester Heritage Bicester Heritage has the made decision to postpone the next Scramble, due to be held on the 26 April, to a new date on the 21 June 2020. It was our intention to hold the second edition of our Super Scramble at Bicester Heritage on the 21 June, however this event will now be postponed until 20th June 2021, allowing us to hold the rescheduled April Scramble in its place. The nature of our Scramble and Super Scramble events, attracting more than 6,500 enthusiasts of all ages from across the UK and abroad, means that the postponement of these ever-popular events is the most appropriate decision to take at this time. Bicester Heritage is disappointed not to be able to go ahead with the original dates as planned, and we know that the rescheduling of both events will be sad news for the many event supporters who had made plans to attend, both enthusiasts and exhibitors alike. However, we feel that this is the best course of action at this juncture and we look forward to welcoming you to Bicester Heritage on the new event dates. At this time, our offices in The Station Armoury remain open and for the foreseeable future we will endeavour to continue with ‘business as usual’. We wish it to be known that the safety of our event attendees, specialists, exhibitors and traders is of paramount importance to Bicester Heritage and we will continue to closely monitor this unprecedented situation closely. Bicester Heritage wishes to reassure all Scramble Pass holders (purchased for the 26 April) that their current Passes will allow entry to the Scramble on the new date of 21 June 2020. If you would like to login to your Eventbrite account to check your Passes, please click here. If you are unable to attend the new Scramble date then you are entitled to a full refund. Refunds can be requested up until Saturday 13 June 2020. Should you wish your Pass to be refunded, please follow the steps set out by Eventbrite by clicking here.
  10. Updated 16 March 2020 - https://ldclub.uk/covid-19 Like many responsible organisations that organise and attend events, we are in the process of reviewing our event calendar for 2020 and making contingency plans around the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The Lotus Drivers Club remains committed to following the latest UK Government advice on events and public gatherings. Current government and public health advice states that all, non-essential social contact with other people should be avoided for the foreseeable future. We are also being advised to avoid pubs, which of course is a popular venue for many of our local club group meetings. Those at risk or with underlying health issues are being advised to self-isolate for a period of 12 weeks. Therefore, we are advising all local area groups and organisers to cancel or postpone their monthly meetings and local club events for the foreseeable future, in line with government advice. We urge you to watch the Lotus Drivers Club website and the advice links below for up to date information. We have a number of elderly members amongst us. If you know of any in your local LDC area, why not drop them an email or give them a call to chat Lotus for a while and make sure they have all they need. For those with underlying health issues, the next 12 weeks is likely to be a long and potentially lonely time. Also, don’t forget that members can keep in touch via our club forum and social media pages. For more information on COVID-19 visit www.who.int To view UK Government advice visit: www.gov.uk For NHS information visit: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ As our volunteer organisers announce their move to postpone or cancel certain events, we please ask that members support them in the decision. We will continue to monitor and follow the latest public health and government advice and encourage all members to maintain good levels of hygiene. We all have a part to play in minimising the spread of any kind of illness and we hope that none of this stops you driving your Lotus in 2020.
  11. It is with great sadness that Clarion Events has decided to postpone the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show with Discovery. The event team have been continually monitoring the latest public health and government guidelines regarding the evolving COVID-19 situation and acting in accordance with their advice. The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is the most important factor and therefore the only action for all involved is to postpone. http://bit.ly/2xCuEdb Postponed With the rapid development of the Covid-19 pandemic and after extensive discussions with all the show’s partners, Clarion Events Ltd has taken the difficult decision to postpone the forthcoming Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show, with Discovery.
