  1. Hi, From 7th to 13th September a Stelvio 2020 Lotus tour will take place from The Netherlands. From 9th to 12th September this tour will be a joined event of Bends and Curves road tripping and Delightful Driving. DD is the road tripping project of Elisa Artioli and Joerg Uhr. Since the Elise was first shown to public on 12th September 1995 in Frankfurt, the theme of this tour is Elise 25th anniversary. For more information and for registration visit https://www.bendsandcurves.com/2020/07/03/stelvio-2020/. Registration means you will be updated about the program and cost
  2. Hello all, time flies! In two days time our NC500 adventure will start. If you'd like you can follow this adventure on my website www.bendsandcurves.com. We'll be in Bo'ness for the Lotus meeting on 12 June evening. I'm in contact with Andrew Laing for this, maybe a meeting and drive up with Scottish Lotus owners in the afternoon of 12 June is possible; we'll be coming in from the Cairngorms, maybe our lunchstop at the Dalmunzie Castle Hotel is a good meeting place. We'll be there approximately at 1.30 pm. I think Andrew is checking this out with Scottish Lotus drivers. Cheers, Jan
  3. Hi Al, thank you very much for replying and the information. In the meantime I have been in contact with Brian and Jim Love who pointed out some other points of interest in the neighbourhood like the train museum and his help to get in touch with Colin of the Motor Museum. It all sounds really good and we definitely would like to meet you all in Bo'ness! Since I'm a member of Club Lotus as well as Lotus Drivers Club that shouldn't be a problem then ;-). In 1 or 2 weeks time I will be planning the itinerary for that day and then I will check on the hotels/B&B's; I've heard from others
  4. Hello Brian and others :-), The preparation for the road trip has lead to a plan ;-). It wil take place from 5th June 2019 when we will cross the sea with DFDS to Newcastle until 13th June when we will sail back. The itinerary is ready also, except for 1 day: Wednesday 12th June when we will cover Inverness back to the Edinburgh area. The finish of that day is not planned yet. I think I've read somewhere that in Bo'ness areameetings of LEGS take place, is that correct? It would be the perfect stop for us on 12th June. If a meeting with some guys and girls of LEGS and other ent
  5. Hi Kieran, thanks for your reply. We're arriving in Newcastle early morning. Since we only have 1 day to cover the distance to Inverness I'm afraid Kininmonth and Fettercairns are a bit to far east for us . We do pass Pitlochry though, it seems. Maybe we can avoid the dual carriageways in the second part of that day, if we are on schedule to arrive in Inverness somewhere late afternoon. But thanks for thinking with me!
  6. Hi Gerry, thank you so much for the info!! For now I'm planning the route for satnav (with MyRouteApp) so I can share the route with the other participants, but I will keep your offer in mind! The photo's are great and the info so useful! Thanks again and when I have some questions about what you wrote I will sent you a PM. Have a great day, Regards Jan Hi Duggie, also a big thank you to you! This all makes me wish it was June already. I will sent you a PM if I would like to know some more :-). Best regards, Jan
  7. Thanks Brian! In a few weeks time the dates should be set; I will update this topic as soon as possible.
  8. Hi all, With the fantastic memories of the Jim Clark Memorial Tour 2018 of April in mind, I'm planning a new road trip for a group of Dutch Lotus owners and enthousiasts. All participants of the JCMT2018 want to taste more of wonderful Scotland. And the challenge of the North Coast 500 is so appealing that it didn't need much encouragement and persuation to make this our goal. June 2019 will be the month to do it. We will probably be with 8-10 cars and 12-15 people. Since we can't make it a trip of two weeks, we are limited to 5 full days for the 500 miles. This means we will prob

  10. Nice, just paid for a party of 3 from the Netherlands (Jan, Joost) and Italy (Elisa). Hope we will be there in time, all horror stories about traffic on Friday from Dover to Norwich make that I hope you all keep some meat on the grill until late at night
  11. Biarritz, Radisson Blu hotel, Septembre 2nd.
  12. Hi, From The Netherlands a convoy organised by Van der Kooi Sportscars will be using the HoH-Harwich connection friday evening. Me and my co-pilot-with-a-rather-big-Elise-heart instead prefer to drive so we plan to arrive in Dover via Antwerp and Calais somewhere around 2-3 pm and from there we'll take the various Mxx's to arrive in Norwich Central Hotel somewhere end of the afternoon of maybe early evening. Sunday morning we'll leave from the hotel direction Stanstead. Suggestions to join a convoy are welcome!!
  13. Found a perfectly good one at Frederic Koninckx Motors near Antwerp
  14. Hi, yeah I have emailed them, no reply yet. Thanks for the offer, I wait for a used one for now.
  15. Hi, a moment of stupidness means my Elise S1 has no fuel filler cap anymore. Someone at a petrol station in Sterzing Italy is probably the new owner. Hence I'm looking for an original replacement. Anyone?
