  1. Happy to turn up in my Esprit S2 so that's another pre-1990 car for the entry list.
  2. The TLF code does not get recognised on the ticket page ☹
  3. Nice Lotus turnout on Sunday with summer weather holding out for a change.. Thanks to whoever brought along the Lotus flag but just amazing how many other "Car Clubs" bring along their corporate hospitality units... Nice display in front of Beaulieu House and maybe an Evija will be there next year?
  4. Thanks for the link. I will be there with my Esprit S2 on Sunday but think I will give any "burn outs" a miss!
  5. What time do cars have to be on the stand please Bibs? It says 8am start so is that the ETA?
  6. Fantastic day with so many memories to take away including the world record attempt with cars on track - hope that gets in the books. Reminded me of the M25 on a Friday afternoon - but with all the cars you want around you! Well done to Bibs who worked like a trojan all day and all the days before that too. Thanks to Lotus and Geely for getting it on at last and I hope the enthusiasm of all Lotus owners and fans at the event left a lasting impression on them all for next time - next year maybe as the banner said! Great to bump into my Absolute Lotus photoshoot friends and Mrs L again. Also to meet Scott Walker by my car on the Club Lotus stand.
  7. I am now on the Club Lotus stand so have one spare set of yellow Lotus car park tickets. First to DM/PM me on here gets them!
  8. Any ideas about how the 20 places get allocated to each of the Lotus car clubs? I can't possibly subscribe to all of them!
  9. Have ordered my ticket but wondering how Lotus will cope with the other 6,999!
  10. I have sent entry form on their website subject to "judges approval" for my S2 Esprit.
  11. Great news that Lotus will celebrate their 70th at HQ after watching Porsche go overboard for their 70th at Good FoS last weekend. Better late than never and looking forward to sign up page/tickets and details asap. 😊
  12. That looks good Will. Interested to see a gold Elite in the photos. Maybe find a gold Eclat and take photo with the full set!
  13. Will be there Sunday in Club Lotus area.
  14. Thanks for your reply Jon. My fault for asking so close to the event. I will look out for next year.
  15. Hello Jon. I know this is ridiculously late but is there any possibility of a space available for my S2 Esprit? Thanks Nigel
  16. Well done for getting the show back on the road for another TLF Event Bibs. Great to see you at Hofmans and hear the good news first hand. Let's hope 2018 event is less stessful than this one. Will be coming along and added details as instructed! ?

  18. Should be able to give the S2 a run out there for its first 2017 event ?
  19. Fantastic weekend and many thanks to Bibs and team for all their hard work behind the scenes. Saturday weather forecast was completely wrong with wall to wall sunshine and enjoyed the opportunity to be on the TLF stand. Sunday was more like "Shower and Shine " with some inconvenient rain but tremendous turnout and some excellent cars on display. The fact that three of the winning cars were next to me didn't make me feel sore at all ? Maybe a prize next year for spectator's most liked car? ? The only downside was MSVR deciding to charge £5 for Paddock Stand both days. How mercenary can they get!
  20. That's my Gold S2 Esprit you are following on the parade lap video ?

      Ha, hello Nigel! Excellent, love the car :)

      Do you know the guy in KIW 4464 who overtook you? Just wondering if it was a grudge thing :P

      Will you be at Brands next weekend? If so, will say hello, it would be good to meet you.

      Best regards

      Thanks for getting in touch Alan. The guy in the red S3 was very friendly while we were queuing and just said he was getting frustrated at "tooling around" too slowly on the lap and just wanted to press the loud pedal so nothing serious!  Am at Brands both days.  Saturday on the TLF stand and Sunday show and shine.  Won't win anything but it's nice to get the attention. See you there. ?

      Look forward to it. We're there both days VIP :thumbup:

  21. Great day out and terrific fun doing the parade lap. Not much fun having the engine running for 10 minutes waiting for the marshals to let us on the track after telling us to get ready though. Temperature gauge was getting very high!
  22. Sounds like a terrific event and would like to be there Sunday. It's a 3 hour drive (both ways) but should be ok! 1. Owen - Esprit GT3 - Sat and Sun 2. Chipp - M100 S2 - Sun 3. Rob - turbo Esprit - Sat 4.Nigelsd - Esprit S2 Gold - Sun
  23. Put me down No 8 for Saturday - I already have a ticket!
