    [SWEDEN] Lotus Day(s) Gotland Ring May 31-June 1, 2019

    Some will stay in cottages at and some of us will stay at hotels in Visby. We've got discounts on the ferries so please get in touch with me if you'd like to join. The ferries are filling up, especially on Sunday. This is a popular weekend to visit Gotland since Thursday is a holiday and many people take Friday off.
  4. Time to take the ferry to one of the best (and most remote) tracks in Northern Europe. Gotland Ring is situated in an old limestone quarry at the island of Gotland. Unless you are local it takes some effort to come here. There are ferries departing either from Oskarshamn or Nynäshamn. We will depart on Thursday May 30 and go back home on Sunday June 2. This gives us 2 days of driving on this marvelous strip of tarmac. Do check out the guide at Please contact me at stefan.axelsson [at] if you are interested. Information will also be posted at (in Swedish).
  5. On August 11th 2019 we (as in Lotus Car Club of Sweden) arrange a track day at Kinnekulle Ring just outside Götene in Sweden. This will be the fifth time in a row that we visit this Lotus friendly track. Please contact me via PM or e-mail stefan.axelsson(at) for more information. Or take a look at the Swedish web site in case you master the language For more information about the track, check out this excellent guide:
  6. Dates are now confirmed for our track days in 2019. First out is the now classic one at Ring Knutstorp. On May 1st 2019 we (as in Lotus Car Club of Sweden) arrange a track day at Ring Knutstorp in the south of Sweden. This track is brilliant for Lotus cars and usually the weather is great in the beginning of May. Please contact me via PM or e-mail stefan.axelsson(at) for more information. Or take a look at the Swedish web site in case you master the language, For more information about the track itself, check out this excellent guide:
  7. Anyone here who have fitted a Lite-Blox battery in their Evora? Tempted to add this to my list of winter upgrades. Interested in any experience, such as how long you can leave the car etc.

    Evora Picture & Video Thread

    Nice in the Summer, bloody cold in the Winter since it's always windy by the sea. Great roads on the nearby ridges as well as a great Lotus track 30 minutes away, called Ring Knutstorp.

    Evora Picture & Video Thread

    Up here we have something called winter. Which include snow and ice plus plenty of sand and salt on the roads. So sport cars tend to be kept off the road until spring. Good for you if you can drive all year round. Still a lot better than a Tesla 😂

    My daughter took some photos a couple of weeks back before the car was put away for the winter. She's a bit more artistic then myself...

    Brake discs for S1?

    Haven't done that many miles with them yet. Bedded in and one track day plus some road. Not having them cross drilled gives peace of mind. The old discs showed a lot of cracks, especially on the front discs. I bought them from a retailer in Sweden. Price was very reasonable, ended up paying SEK 11,500 for the full set (EUR 1,114, GBP 979).
