  1. After a respectable turn out last month in the decidedly iffy May weather, shall we attempt another meeting at BiH next Thursday, 24th?
  2. Hope weather holds for Thursday’s planned evening meet at BIH, looking forward to it. This is what we are capable of chaps and chappesses or whatever. Appropriated from @Buddsy 2017!!!
  3. Thanks to swift intervention of Bibbs looks like venue is on for 20th. See you there for 7pm (weather permitting) I’ll be the one eating fish and chips 😋 I’m looking for freedom!
  4. Resurrect the 3rd Thursday evening? May 20th? Subject to Alex / BiH approval Is normal life returning? BR, Nick

  6. Great to hear from you guys and that there Interest in emerging from our lockdown bunkers! Post May 17th I suppose for meet, current proposal for easing of restrictions is 30 people outdoors (hope it blinking warms up a bit!) or 6 indoors, two tables if needed (or is not in spirit of restrictions 🤔) Assume Bird in Hand is still the place to meet? And we can always take a snoop down the road at Lotustropolis? Probably need numbers and pre-booking Resurrect thursday evenings?
  7. Any interest in reconvening pub meet after 17th May pending confirmation of relaxation of regulations?
  8. I have one too and the steering works on mine as wel!! 😉
  9. Nice to see some chilli growing enthusiasts on here! My last years haul. Will post pictures of this years progress. Don't currently pinch out - does this increase yield significantly?
  10. Thanks for flagging this up Phil and getting us motivated to come! Hopefully see you all next month.
  11. Hi all, anyone committed to going tomorrow evening. Will come along if ther will be anyone else there.🙂 BR, Nick
  12. Agreed. Most Elise drivers blank me in the Esprit and Europa. Happened to me this evening. Grey Elise on A143 Haddiscoe Dam - blanked. Evora drivers wave / flash, as do I to them.
  13. Booked my ticket and emailed for display permit. Will get NickS Evora SR IPS (Trevor) to book tomorrow.

    You should get the app Untappd or Beerbook as I call it. The app logs your beers and pubs and you share with your drinking buddies you link with. You get a chance to rate the beers, put in your tasting notes and take a photo then toast those buddies. Good if you have mates all over the world. You also collect awarded badges and who doesn't like collecting stuff!.
  15. @martynv I have a mate who wants to go in his Evora and is in process of joining the forum. Cheers.

  17. Great night. Great cars and great people. highlights for me were @MJK nice comments on my Esprit and him wanting to sit in and start her up. Thanks for the comments also @Guy Munday Best was the short blast home on the A140 / A47 with @Buddsy and other chap with Evora launch edition (sorry didn't catch name - next time) The business! Cheers all.
  18. Saw that Sir John Whitmore, Lotus Cortina wheel waver, has also sadly passed. Respect.
  19. Takes a good photo Dave!
  20. Congratulations gentlemen. The few of Alex's events I attended at Hethel were some very relaxed and enjoyable days and really felt like being in a special club. Part if that was the Lotus breifing room and the location of the building to the track but also the friendliness and professionalism of Alex and his team. Best of luck to both.
  21. Quite agree, the magazine article could have should have been a celebration of the Esprit and the owner / specialist dedication that goes into the restor-preservation of these 'rare' yet undervalued icons. Better to see an early Esprit than another over restored Jag with a multitude of re-pressed body panels made from Chinese steel fighting for a front cover with another 500 or so similar bars of soap. Back to the dressing room for half an orange and a ticking off!
  22. Personally I think Championship gold looks fantastic on G Esprits. ( but I might be biased! )
