  1. You know what, I have both of those magazines as well!
  2. Well, the car's gonna be at the Supercar Fest and the Salon Prive a week later πŸ™‚ And at some point, I need to get over to Caffeine and Machine - a pilgrimage I have yet to make. Extra love my car. Drove it to Ledders today and it was spectacular (had two keep the frozen stuff on the passenger seat, mind).
  3. Paul, I am loving the Gulf paint job. Looking forward to seeing that in the flesh. Can't do Bromyard sadly, as have friends coming over. But, am signed up for Supercar Fest at Shelsley Walsh on 29th August, which I am superly looking forward to. Who else is going? BTW, not sure if it's just me but I thought that C4 docu on Lotus was a tiny bit rubbish.
  4. Not me. I was tucked up in Herefordshire at the time, but good to know there are G Cars out there for no good reason 😁
  5. So, we'll cancel for next Sunday (25th) and look to rearrange in September. Don't forget Channel 4, 1745hrs (straight after the sprint race!). Awesome!
  6. That is quite literally, the one! Yeah. How awesome does Lexi look there? I can't believe (having paid for supercar parking) that they put me next to a BMW! Brilliant. Thanks Bibs, made my day!
  7. So I went to Goodwood yesterday and it was epic. Loved the massive Lotus vibe, seeing the Emira in the flesh, more Evija, lots of Lotusness; I even had a chat with Russell Carr! Just ace. And, the Esprit, got me there and back without issue. 2 fantastic drives in one day! Brilliant. Could not have had a more fun day and the Esprit even solicited attention while it was parked up. A guy posted a pic of it on the internet! Awesome! Barry, Robin - shame you both can't make it. Real shame. I wanted to catch up about the online Emira launch and being on the big screen! If there's anyone out there planning to come, please shout, and we'll keep the date. If no one shouts up, then I think it'll need postponing to a date in Sep, say, when people aren't quite as away-y. So... if you're coming on 25th Jul, shout, and we'll crack on with it.
  8. All car manufactured after 2011 will be fine with E10. The increase in ethanol tends to corrode pipes and the like mostly (happy to be corrected). Older cars therefore don't take to it well, because of older rubber hoses. And especially not great to be left standing for long periods with it in the system. I suspect it burns hotter as well. Super unleaded will stay E5, so you're fine but you have to stick with Super, which I'm assuming you're using anyway. Govt has committed to another 5 years for Super being E5 and I suspect that they will do the same again in 5 years. But, longer term, engine modification might be required. That's my take, but I'm not an expert.
  9. πŸ˜ƒ My glasses broke so I was doing an emergency run to Specsavers. Ah, I get so much positive attention on the road I kinda get blasΓ© with it. If only I'd known it was you! Highnam car show on Sun. Bicester Heritage for LDC veterans day on Mon. The car's been awesome!
  10. So, just to say, what with the delay to freedom and all, that the plan is to still have the meet on 25th July (week after Silverstone GP). For those of us going to Goodwood, we're still waiting for clarification and that may become a thing, but I doubt it will affect us. Awesome. Looking forward to it.
  11. So that's you and me, Barry, at least 😁
  12. So, let's go firm on Sunday 25th Jul, for 1000hrs. Recommend that we meet again at Coco's Cafe (which will be open this time), and maybe over a brew, chat through options for a run out. Pass the word. Be nice to chat in not terrible rain (hopefully) and with a buttie and a brew.
