  3. We're on the final countdown now and have another two more prizes to tell you all about! Paul Golding of Lotus on Track has yet again been most generous in donating TWO track days, one at Donington Park, the other on the Silverstone GP circuit. Thanks Paul! These will feature in our pre-lunch charity auction so dust off those wallets ready ☺️ In our opinion Lotus on Track are the best organised track days so if you're thinking about doing one then Lotus on Track is the way to go.

  7. Hi Everyone, we have a good number of first timers booked on to Lotus in the Peak this year and have had one or two query not having received tickets. To clarify: there are no printed tickets for LitP. Everyone that has booked will receive full instructions digitally by email in the week before the event. For those booked on a run these instructions will include your group number and leader. There will also be a 'run signing on form' - It is important that this form is printed off, signed and handed to your assigned leader on arrival at your start point. This is a legal requirement for our MSUK event approval. No form no run! So please take care to bring it with you to the start point. Please keep an eye on your inbox and be sure to check your spam mail just in case! Additionally - All those booked onto the 'Classic Run' please note there has been a change of run start start point and it will now be Calton Lees Car Park Chatsworth, off the A6012 DE4 2NX. (NOT HASSOP STATION CAFE). Thanks everyone - We're all looking forward to a great day, we hope you are too The LitP Team

  14. I bought some textured vinyl and made my own whilst in lockdown and still have sufficient left to cut out another set should you be interested. They're a good thickness so very durable but on the downside you do need to be careful not to get any wax residue into the textured surface which is more textured than OE. More details on my MLOC post...
  15. Nice looking yellow na sports racer come on the market today for anyone looking...

  23. Whilst we were in the queue to get on the Lotus stand a very knowledgeable chap behind us referred to the Evija as the Evita 😁
  24. You're welcome, maybe touch up the blue first, then a few light coats of lacquer should bring back the brightness in the red. Ideally remove the badges to spray them but you could easily mask and do them in situ too. 👍

    Is anyone else wondering whether the V6 might actually be the sub £60k entry level car?
