  1. What's new in this club
  2. Ace enjoy it when you can their made to be driven. Lets sort something when we can. Hardly took either of mine out last year but started on the +2 restoration.
  3. Yea its my first lotus. Been fortunate to own many different cars but wanted something more interesting. Not driven it yet but hoping for some decent weather and an end to lockdown soon. Would be great to meet some fellow owners in and around the area 👍
  4. Hi dr-jayhart - I'm in Carmarthenshire, approx 15 miles west of Swansea.
  5. Ace I'm in Monmouth where are you Hallmark7?
  6. Hi everyone - count me in please - it would be great to have some sort of meet up 🙂
  7. Evening Welshwiseguy. Congratulations on getting an Evora. Is it your first lotus? Happy to roll with you when things settle. Just might not be able to keep up.
  8. Hello fellow Welsh owners. I’m about to take delivery of my Evora over the next few days. From the Cowbridge area. When the world returns to some relative normality be great to meet some owners in South Wales.
  9. Good morning Jay, thank you! Yes, you're not far away, I look forward to crossing paths. I think WhatsApp groups are invitation-only, I've not found a way to search for them? I'll keep an eye out for any mention though. I've a fairly high-miler X180 Carb Turbo in the garage that's been with me nearly ten years now. It does have some S4 parts on it but no doubt Ken will spot plenty that aren't! Haven't joined LDC yet but I met Rob (Sport 350, Cardiff maybe?) a few years back at Castle Combe and someone else from the club let me join their stand so I know they're a friendly bunch. I've a lot of new roads to explore here too... have you any stand-out recommendations?
  10. Morning JayTwo welcome to the right side of the boarder. Happy to meet up when things relax. I know a few owners around here and there is a good WhatsApp group of lotus types who have run outs. Lotus 🇬🇧🚗 I think if you look for that you can find them? Have you joined LDC? What you driving? Ken in the WhatsApp group has a red s4 too. Stay safe. Jay
  11. This week I've moved to the Ebbw Vale area, so consider me an addition to this group if you'll tolerate my wrong-side-of-the-border accent! I know there are others in the area, I was admiring a beautiful little white Elan at the Llangynidr show only last summer but didn't find the owner. Hopefully there'll be time left this summer for motoring meets and adventures, looking forward to meeting some new faces and cherished wheels.
  12. Looks like this thread has been quiet for a while. Didn’t know it was here. Based me monmouth 68 +2 elan under restoration. My 2nd car bought 23 years ago. 82 dry sump esprit. 2004 Elise 111r sc. jay
  13. Hello. I just bought an Esprit Turbo HC ( pic on introductions) but can't collect it for a fortnight. I'm located in Cardigan but interested in meeting up when the weather improves. I hear there's a group who meet near Cardiff cheers
  14. Never got around to looking down the index page until today! I'm here in North Wales near to Mold.
  15. id say yes maybe it would draw more attention to the welsh section of the forum to get a better head count of how many of us are here
  16. Should this topic be renamed 'lotus owners in wales' perhaps?
  17. I didn't know there was a welsh section im in Blaengarw at the top of the Garw valley north of Bridgend,
  18. if anymore of us welshies crawl out of the woodwork we'll be getting enough numbers for a clan.
  19. I didn't know there was a Welsh section on here as I normally frequent the other lotus forum!
  20. Quick nudge that this is tomorrow for those thinking about heading along
  21. I'm in. (flying the welsh flag) Its only up the road from me.

  23. Lotus has appointed Newtown Motors of Cwmbran as an official dealer for the whole of South Wales. Newtown Motors, an independent family business, has a long association with motorsport stretching back to the 1969 when the company was appointed as agents for MG. It has since represented niche brands such as Noble and TVR in the principality, and is currently Wales’ only Morgan dealer. Full sales and service facilities for Lotus have now been added at Cwmbran. Lotus was founded in 1952, two years after Newtown Motors founder Glyn Davies opened his first garage at the small village of Garndiffaith near Pontypool. Expansion brought a move to the then new town of Cwmbran in 1966 - hence the name, which has remained ever since. The business is still family owned and managed, with Glyn Davies junior as company chairman. In addition to its prestigious sports car ranges, Newtown Motors also represent Vauxhall and Nissan in South East Wales. “We’re delighted to welcome a pedigree such as Lotus to our stable,” said Glyn junior. “We’ll be offering both new and used models at our newly refurbished showrooms, alongside another great British thoroughbred, Morgan. We’ll also have Lotus-trained technicians dedicated to maintaining cars to optimum level, so customers get the most out of their investment.” Newtown Motors are strong supporters of many local activities including rugby, golf, tennis, squash, drama and, as you would expect, avid Welsh rugby followers. The company looks forward to presenting the Lotus products at many events next year. For full range details and specifications call in to Newtown Motors Lotus at Somerset Road, Cwmbran NP44 1QX or call 01633 485251. Further details can also be found at Click for full article
