  1. The Evora came 5th and 2nd in today’s two races at Anderstorp Raceway. Soaking wet conditions in both races. The second got red flagged due to a serious crash (one driver taken to hispital). Lookedmore like speed boats on the long strait. Today prince Carl Philip was accompanied by Thed Björk in the Evora. Great to see a lot more car in both classes. Although only one Lotus this weekend.
  2. My discs needs to be replaced since they've now reached the minimum thickness. I've settled for the discs that are sold by Elise-shop. and Just curious about what others has settled for? I ordered mine in April and the latest update I got they should be shipped during second half of May. Apparently the rear discs are on back order. I've been searching for groved but not cross drilled discs. But so far I haven't found any for the Evora. I've seen some kits with upgraded front discs. Anyone with experience of such?
  3. The Exige had issues with the noice limits (95 dB) on Friday. This is what they ended up with on Saturday... DSC_9963 by Stefan Axelsson, on Flickr The Michelin man seems to prove with the Evora DSC_9990 by Stefan Axelsson, on Flickr

    Motorsport black, looks just black when cloudy but in direct sunlight it's almost brown due to "gold" flakes.

    Mileage anxiety

    I’ve done 39,146 miles in my Evora since March 2014. I might replace it during 2018, but whatever comes next will be used as much.
  11. We, as in Lotus Car Club of Sweden, start the 2018 season by going south. The weekend April 21-22 is a busy one at Hockenheim. Both Hockenheim Historic / Jim Clark Revival and the premiere of Lotus Cup Europe. We will drive to Hockenheim on Friday 20 and stay at Hotel Speyer am Technik Museum. Two full days at Hockenheim and then back home on Monday 23. There are special discount for Lotus cars and clubs. Read more at As of today there are already 8 cars confirmed from our club. If anyone would like to join us please send pm or e-mail me at sekreterare[at]
  12. Not sure how this was done one the factory wheels. But the satin finish seems to be a bit tricky. I had my wheels sprayed in gold with satin finish by a wheel refurbishing company. But the satin clear coat started to flake. Had them re-sprayed once, but when they started to flake again I gave up. Now they are powder coated in gold with gloss finish. No issues with flaking clear coat.

    Evora 18" Wheels

    What’s the weight of these and from where did you source them? Alternatives to the Rimstock/Team Dynamics are always welcome.
