    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).

    So........2019

    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
  13. Martyn - Esprit SE Bibs - Evora ChrisJ - Turbo Esprit or Excel SE top-plumber - unmentionable nigeninja -Europa S Bazza - S3 Esprit markw996 - S4 Esprit
  14. Hoping to attend, Esprit may not be out of hibernation yet so could be in the daily.
  15. I have a Nissan LEAF and I have never been beaten off the lights by anything! 0-30 they are incredible.
  16. until

    There should be a button that says "Download guest list". I've just removed myself as I can't make it now Hopefully see you all next month.
  17. Thanks Chris, I replaced all the vacuum lines & elbows when I first got the car in 2013. See above for the erm.... fix
  18. Thanks, I'd checked the inertia switch but not the wiring, and I also checked for a blocked CAT as that only went back on last week. The AA guy checked for a spark (I must put a little spark tester in the car) and he checked for an injector pulse, both were present. We then knew it had to be fuel.... or rather no fuel A gallon of fuel later and I was on my way! (faulty low fuel warning light & fuel gauge, reading 1/3 tank when empty and 3/4 when I brimmed it with 70 more litres) Looks like I'll make it to the Lotus Festival after all
  19. So I've just changed by front suspension and sticky brake caliper, decided to go for a test drive and I'm now waiting for the AA about 3 miles from home. I haven't disturbed anything I shouldn't have, but it has been up and down ramps a few times so maybe it's sucked up some muck from the tank. It will start but won't tick over for more than a second or two. I can keep it running by pressing the throttle furiously but it won't rev past 1500 and cuts out as soon as I stop. I'm booked in for an MOT retest on Tuesday and really want to get to the festival at Brands this weekend. Any ideas?
  20. I'm a bit late to the party this year due to a few car issues, but if there's still space I'd be happy to display on the club stand I was holding off, but as I haven't snapped any bolts (yet!) on my suspension replacement (and they are all undone) I'll be there 100%
