    Bond in Suffolk

    I must admit that the Highwing is not a Bond car, but that didnt seem to matter to much to the organisers, as long as they had a white Esprit. Also one of the main attractions of the car, was that most people there had never seen an Esprit Highwing before, its novelty value alone caused a great deal of conversation which the organisers were delighted with. So there it is, the main thing is, a Lotus Esprit was present............... here is a link to You tube showing the BBC conducting an interview in front of it, only snatches of it I'm afraid.....
  9. While I was at the James bond premier, I got talking to a guy who is closely involved at Lotus, and we got talking about the new Lotus which is due out soon, he also hinted that Lotus was also working on another project, I asked if that might be on the lines of the Elise, he smilled and wouldnt answer......................... watch this space............................

    yep it was a nice evening, bloody freezing, and my heating in the Esprit decided that it was the evening it wasnt going to work, flippin cold drive back that night. But the Esprit stole the show had crowds around it all night leading up to the film, with any luck it might be featured in the local press, there was plenty of pictures taken.

  12. Sorry that I couldnt make it yesterday guys, went to start the car up and the battery was completely knackered, wouldnt even take a charge from the jump leads, so that was the final nail in the coffin. Hope everyone had a good time, judging by the pictures posted it was a good turn out, lets hope i can make the next meet. ............Series................
  13. ok guys, this trip for me might be in doubt, I have the wife's family coming over sunday, so if I am able it will be just for the first part, considering the cost of fuel, that it is also creating problems with the dark haired curly one. As rough estimates put it at
  14. can someone give me the postcode please for the longwater carpark so that i can find it on sunday guys, unless someone is travelling up from my end of the county...........

    Le Mans '09

    Apologies for starting this thread a bit early for next year, but being that Le-Mans is such a massive event in the car callender, I thought it might be prudent to see who is interested in going to next years race. firstly i started this damn thread last year, and ended up not going to this years event, so to put myself fimly in the frame I am definitely going....... bibs i know is also another le-Mans regular, so i am hoping that we can get a sizable group together to convoy down, intial thoughts would be welcome. my dates are normally Thursday am through Calais and coming back Sunday pm. ATM early numbers suggest about 7/10 cars going from S.E. Essex, Southend and surrounding areas. These are not all Esprits, so it will be pretty varied.
