    Thank you Guy Munday

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to @Guy Munday. Guy just gave 15 Norfolk Bumpkins a fantastic and informative tour of Classic Team Lotus. Guy is a wealth of information of all thing Lotus. I can’t belive how he can remember dates, points scored, drivers, races etc etc. You can’t just remember the information he tried to impart on us , you must live and breath it. Thanks Guy we all had a great time
  4. Morning all I have been speaking to Guy Munday and Classic Team Lotus about about a tour around the new CTL building. For those who have not been to CTL before it is an amazing place with an array of Lotus race cars which are being worked on and on display. The history in incredible and it is located opposite the Lotus factory. The date is Tuesday 20th November approx 7 p.m time tbc. I thought this could replace our monthly meet in November and perhaps a quick pint at the Bird in hand down the road after (if they are still serving). For those who do not know Guy, he is the authority on all things Lotus and did a superb job of the commentary at the Lotus 70th celebration. Guy has agreed to do this for free for us ( thank you Guy) and will impart some of his vast knowledge about the cars and history to Team Lotus, CTL will charge £24 for the tour. Space will be limited to 15-20 will try and push it to 20. Please put your name down if you want to come. Please put your name down on this list and then pay Steph directly at Classic Team Lotus on 01953 601621. NUMBERS ARE RESTRICTED TO 20. DO NOT CALL TO PAY CTL UNLESS YOUR NAME IS ON THIS LIST.

    Which Europa Would You Choose?

    I would definitely say the first thing to do is sit in one. A lot of people do not fit, to the point they cant even get their legs underneath the steering wheel. Otherwise as people have already said its then down to personal choice. The Twin Cam special is known as the pick of the crop. Five speed and the big valve engine makes it a fun car. Lots of cars with replacement Spyder chassis which was meant to be a improvement. I prefer the standard chassis (mine is on a spyder). Either go for originality or go something very modified in my opinion. No time for middle ground here. I think the series ones are a stunning looking card (bread van). Probably not so useable but a rare beast indeed. The windows don’t even go down. Buy what you like is the answer, what anybody else thinks is only a opinion. That being said if it is something you are likely to want to sell on after you have scratched an itch then a original car will be a easier car to sell in a already niche and small market place.
