  1. MLOC are pleased to announce that Lotus in the Peak 2020 is now available for booking via the MLOC store. This year's event will run very much on similar lines to before. There will once again be a Friday night barbecue at the Charles Cotton Hotel in Hartington for all those wishing to make a weekend of it. Saturday is a leisure day allowing people time to explore all that the Peak District has to offer. Sunday is the main event - There will once again be 3 early morning runs, this time starting from either Ashbourne, Whaley Bridge or from Hassop Station for the 'classic run'. Both Ashbourne and Whaley Bridge will have 3 run paces to choose from whereas the classic run from Hassop Station will be run at a slower more leisurely pace only. All runs will stop for breakfast at Hassop Station Cafe and will then combine to form one large procession to Peak Rail Rowsley where we will have our car of the day competition, kid's competitions and of course our not to be missed raffle. There will be loads of fabulous raffle prizes on offer with proceeds going to our chosen charity for this year - Rainbows Hospice for children and young people, providing care and support to life-limited children and their families. So please dig deep and purchase loads of raffle tickets for this most worthy of causes. https://www.rainbows.co.uk/ A gourmet picnic can be booked for the Sunday and you can of course also bring your own along too. We hope to see you there. Further information and booking details can be found via the following link:- https://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/litpbooking/ Thanks The LitP Team
  2. We are really excited to announce we will be joined this year by some fellow Lotus enthusiasts all the way from Belgium! We'd like to give a very warm welcome to members of the Belgian Elise drivers forum - BEND.BE who will be bringing 6 cars to our event as part of their UK tour, visiting the Caterham 60th Anniversary Festival at Donington and the Lotus factory. Their trip organiser - Xavier Bonhomme also kindly donated 2 of our raffle prize vouchers for Roadster-Covers and ViGi Leather so a special thank you to Xavier for that There's still time to book onto one of the runs, pre-order breakfasts and the catered picnic at Kedleston and reserve raffle tickets but the shop will be closing at 6:30pm on Wednesday 5th July. After this date anyone else will of course be most welcome to arrive in their Lotus direct to Kedleston on the day and pay £10 per car on entry. Raffle tickets can be purchased on the day too.
  3. Only 2 weeks to go until the big day! Anyone wishing to participate in one of the early morning runs should note they can ONLY do this by pre-booking a place via the MLOC store (don't forget to purchase breakfast(s) at the same time too if required). The same also applies for those wishing to order a pre-paid picnic; this is arranged by Kedleston themselves so we need to confirm numbers to them in advance. Thanks Also please note the MLOC store will close on the Wednesday prior to the event - Wednesday 5th July so be sure not to miss out. Anyone else is of course most welcome to arrive in their Lotus direct to Kedleston on the day and pay £10 on entry. Hope to see you there

  9. Hi Mark, Great news to hear you'll be joining us again this year. The Matlock Bath run will be similar to previously but amended to take in the new breakfast stop at Carsington Water plus we have a new run start point in Buxton which will offer a slightly longer run on some previously unused roads. Once again, both runs will converge on Carsington for breakfast after which we will have the procession to Kedleston itself. See you there Phil
  10. Thanks for the welcome chaps and the offer to share our LitP details, I have literally just come back from Kedleston, it will make an excellent setting for this year's event with good level grassland for us to use, not saying there won't be a bit of sheep's poo to avoid though
  11. Hi Andy, Thanks for the welcome and great to hear you enjoyed LitP. Will make it for breakfast one of these days for sure :-)
  12. Tickets are now on sale in the MLOC store for what we hope will be another great event, with new roads to enjoy and a splendid new venue in Kedleston Hall. Once more we will be having 'car of the day' voted for by everyone, competitions for the kids and of course the Lotus themed raffle with some superb prizes, thanks to our many supporters.You will need to join MLOC in order to view the events pages and book the event itself but basic membership is free and should only take a minute or two if you follow this link:-https://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/membership/Once joined, all information can be found via the link below:-https://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/forum/topic/66472-litp-2017-event-information/We hope to see you there The MLOC and LitP team
  13. Thought it was about time I joined, having met Eddie and a few other LDC members at Shardlow. Been a Lotus owner since 2003 when I bought my S1 Type 49, never thought I'd actually sell it but in January I did and am now the proud owner of a carbon grey NA Evora Sports Racer. One of these Sunday mornings I will have to try and get to your breakfast meet, a bit of a trek for me but looks to be worth it. I am part of the team behind the 'Lotus in the Peak' event organised by MLOC so will be posting information about this year's event on here shortly. Hope to meet up with more of you in the future Phil
