  1. Looking forward to this one. We're going to be doing the Curborough sprint day on the way up for the weekend
  2. 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

    Carfest South 2020

    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.
  4. Ian, Jennie is working on the information for this trip so once it's available it'll be published. The dates (28 May - 7 June) on the calendar and event flyers are correct and haven't changed though so in the meantime if you'd like to register your interest you can email Jennie at j.wilson@lotusdriversclub.org.uk

For more information please email j.wilson@lotusdriversclub.org.uk Our Driving Adventures are not a race, time trial or guided tour. They are a navigational road trip where you will be given a start and finish point for each day, along with a suggested route. You will be expected to find your own way there with your own map, sat nav or with a little help from one of the Clubs friendly volunteers.

    Insurance contact

    Hi Ian/Nige. Routen Chaplin are no longer the LDC’s preferred insurer. They have promised that will contact all policyholders in plenty of time before their renewal date to explain the situation. I will look to remove any historical forum posts regarding this to save confusion.
  12. Saturday 23 May 2020 Club Lotus have invited Lotus Drivers Club members to participate in their annual track day event at the Castle Combe circuit in Wiltshire on Saturday 23 May. This is a great value track driving day which includes a minimum of 2 x 15 minute sessions. In practise, the track goes open pitlane around 2pm and 4-5 sessions are normally achievable for no extra cost. Please note the track sessions are run exclusively for Lotus cars only. If you don’t fancy track sessions, the paddock will be full of Lotus cars of all ages, 200 cars typically, and it is a great day out to meet up with friends, look at the cars and watch the track action. Full catering available. Paddock entry is free to all Lotus cars. Each member may book a maximum of two double-session track packages. Each track package consists of a guaranteed minimum of two sessions of track time of approximately 15 minutes each. One of these will be in the morning and the other in the afternoon, although if the day runs smoothly we will invite those who have completed their morning session to take their second session before the lunch break. Packages may be shared between two drivers in the same car and a second package may be booked for a different driver in the same car. This is not a competitive event although there are no speed restrictions on track. There must be no timing, racing or pace-making. A full track briefing will be given to all drivers and free instruction is available from approved Castle Combe ARDS qualified instructors – although you may be asked to make a donation to the charity of choice. More information and the booking form will be available soon. For any enquiries please contact jane@clublotus.co.uk

  14. The Lotus Drivers Club and the Lotus Seven Club are pleased to announce a pilot cooperation in several areas of the country with the objective of pooling our resources to increase the number and variety of events and meetings available to members of both clubs. We also hope that the increased variety of Lotus and Caterham cars at all events will only add to the experience for everyone. The heritage of Lotus & Caterham Sevens is very valued and respected by LDC and acknowledged as the core DNA of all modern Lotus cars. The current Caterham range remains true to Colin Chapman’s ultra-lightweight concept of the Lotus Seven. As the newer models move ever upwards in specification and refinement, albeit with all their 1.8 and 3.5 litre Toyota engines now being supercharged, this inevitably leads to increased weight. However, Lotus still regard this lightweight philosophy as a core value and all Lotus cars remain true sports cars with class-leading legendary Lotus performance and handling for their size and specification. There is a great mutual interest in the range of cars owned by members of our two clubs and we have already seen a great camaraderie at joint meetings. We hope that this initiative will improve the clubs offerings to all our members in the areas being trialled and lead to a greater level of cooperation in the future. The areas initially being trialled are Yorkshire, Kent, Devon & Cornwall and Norfolk & Suffolk
