    Stelvio trip

    I'm hoping to pick up a late model Lamborghini Gallardo LP (or maybe an early Huracan) towards the middle of this year once my parents house gets sold, then a factory visit will definitely be on the cards (It's been a miserable couple of years with losing both my parents, so a supercar should make life a little bit more enjoyable from this point on). Still keeping the Esprit though

    Stelvio trip

    I didn't realise so I've just Youtubed it! It's a shame, but I think the other 20 or so bikers I'm meeting there would be a bit perplexed if I turned up in a car!

    Stelvio trip

    Not much help, but I'll be doing it in June on a motorcycle, multiple times! (Staying in Cortina d'ampezzo for a week, about 100 miles from it).

    I'll be at Bicester on Sunday with my Esprit... but parked up with PH
  5. Sorry to hear that, I did wave back when I saw you parked there, but it was a bit last minute! (Relieved to hear it wasn't an accident)
  6. On Saturday morning I'm planning to leave Flitwick, Bedfordshire at 6:00am and head up to the factory to arrive around 8:30am via the following route: Baldock A505 Royston A505 Duxford A505 (should be passing here about 7:00am) Thetford A11 I'm sure I'll meet plenty of other Lotus cars along the way so may join into someone elses convoy
  7. I'll be going up Saturday morning from Flitwick (nr Millbrook) direction, happy to convoy up or meet people along the route (A507, A11)
  8. Order complete too! Thanks Bibs (I only remembered 2 of the 4 digits correctly, and they were in the wrong order.... must buy a pen)
  9. Me too, didn't write my order number down either, I remember the 4 digits... but not the order they were in!
  10. Count me in as a definite for this, potentially interested in the hotel deal too
  11. Mugello MotoGP sounds interesting, I've not long got back from seeing Rossi get on the podium at Catalunya. I'll watch this thread and pipe up next year in the unlikely event that becomes a favourite
  12. Just an S4 I'm afraid (even if it is a very clean one) so too common for the magazine I would guess
