  1. Hi all I have booked to go to the Ragley Hall Classic show (15th May). They are running a decibel challenge and I think my Esprit is a decent contender... I knew there would be a use for the noise somewhere! I'll make efforts to (quietly) attend a breakfast meet soon.
  2. Hi JT Welcome to the group. I am in Chesham. Better at breaking than fixing but willing to lend a hand ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy to go out for drives or meet ups ๐Ÿ‘
  3. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘ awesome thanks for sending an update. If you are happy to stay in contact then it would be great to follow your progress and see it finished/on track. Catch you in 2022!!
  4. Hi Paul,
    I have an Esprit S2.
    The clutch need to be replace.
    Can you recommend a mechanic who can take on this job.
    Thanking you in advance

  5. Thanks for a great welcome to my first LotusForums meet ๐Ÿ™‚ an excellent sunday morning meet up. I enjoyed sharing the drive in with you, and especially the drive back with thebartman ๐Ÿ‘ I hope I didnโ€™t embarrass the club with the over enthusiastic exit.. slightly overdid the accelerator (handbrake was still on a little ๐Ÿคฏ)
  6. ๐Ÿ™‚ It would be stupid of me to miss a convoy for the sake of neighbourly love! See you at Tesco 07:45 thebartman - Iโ€™ll look out for you enroute ๐Ÿ‘
  7. If I am honest with myself and fair to you there is little chance that I am going to have the Lotus off the drive early enough to meet you at 07:45! Plus the neighbours have a hernia every time I start/idle the car so a 07:00 start up will result in an ASBO! Thanks for the offer of driving up with me, but I am likely to hold you up, so please head off and Iโ€™ll see you thereโ€ฆ sometime between 9 & 10 (of I donโ€™t have to stop ๐Ÿ™‚)
  8. Thanks Chris, What time will you be setting off from there? Are you taking the A414 and avoiding the motorway? If you are planning to take the M25 to the M11 then I can stop at South Mimms services... I think I'd rather do A and B roads (its more scenic should I have to stop and repair something)
  9. Hi all Will any of you be driving through or near to South Buckinghamshire (Chesham, Amersham) on the way to Essex on Sunday? Just wondering if there was a group or individual I could drive with (I wonโ€™t expect you to stop when my car breaks down!). Looking forward to meeting you all either way ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘
  10. Resurrection! Hi plumdeplakmuis I hope that all is well with you. Just wondering if you had finished the build and whether you are using it? I recently met another S2 race car owner who races and lives in Denmark (He bought his red S2 racing car from Scotland in 2019/20). Always interested to hear how a fellow Esprit race car owner is getting on..
  11. I plan to join you.. itโ€™s up to the car whether I make it or not ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Update.... I removed the (newly supplied) servo n Saturday and discovered that not only was it rusty with perished seals it was also full of broken plastic/bakelight(?) from the smashed internals. In short I was supplied a scrap servo (not detected by Lotus Bits nor my Engineer!!) A new servo has been ordered along with some other bits and hopefully it should be fixed soon ๐Ÿ™‚
