    Really interesting to see what others do for a day job. At the risk of boring you all, I am a financial accountant for a group of research institutes, my specialism is vat.

    S1 Elise prices

    Shocked by how much the club lotus insurance value on our S1 Elise has gone up 5.5k in just 2 years. The car is now valued at nearly double what it cost us in 2006 despite the 95k miles on the clock. So what is driving the prices up? Is demand that high? Are prices going to continue to rise at this rate? I would urge any S1 owner without a recent valuation and agreed value insurance to go out and get both.

    Dear Bibs

    Sometimes i really wonder about the posters on this forum. Plus if you keep mentioning chickens Barry will chip in too and then there really will be trouble!

    Interior parts / are you breaking?

    Talking of hens with teeth, and thread crashing slightly.... sorry. I am after a pair of these speaker grills for an 84 turbo.
  7. Our 84 has factory cut 10cm holes in the front dash properly trimmed so i think original. On car stalking at the 70th it seems the speakers should look like this. Anybody know which other cars used them as I am trying to locate a set.
  8. A fabulous event and we were lucky enough to live locally. Had this not been so local i could see that the short notice, and uncertainty about tickets would have made booking travel and accommodation a headache. I am sure that the next event will be planned and announced well in advance. Considering the upheaval at the factory the organisation of such a well run event at short notice must have taken a monumental effort. Hats off to the individuals concerned. The best bits of the day were the f1 demos, lots and lots of loti and enthusiastic owners, loti hooning on track (Gavin and team), the on screen interviews, also merchandise and food were reasonable prices. I felt access could have been better arranged with 2 lanes of cars running right into the parking areas from the site entrance. Maybe more vehicles could be accommodated if this area was given thought. Things to add could be more experts talking about the history, driving, or restoration of the cars. Maybe some practical demos of work in the factory or restorations. The factory areas were interesting but felt very static. Happy to pay to get in too. Please, please can we do it all again next year.
  9. @Bibs any chance of a higher res copy of this? Ours is the ruby s1.
  10. More interested spectators during the f1 demos.
  11. Another shot of Clive and Hazel going out to the pit lane.
  12. I think there was a 70th pin badge about, but I didn't see it on the merchandise stand. I would like to be able to buy one of those.
  13. Fabulous day thanks to all who put in the hard work to organise, and make sure everything ran smoothly. 😊
  14. Barcode ok just didnt want to publish it.
