  1. Thanks, again! Tomorrow is collection day. Leaving home at 5:30am with a trailer to pick her up. More pics to come. Ha! That's a coincidence. I think yellow works really well on the S1y You have a slightly different bumper setup - federal I guess, also judging by the number plate. Mine had a four-tip exhaust at some point in the past and a previous owner made a nasty second cutout. Glad it ended up being symetric enough.
  2. Thanks for the nice words, Bibs and Justin! I can't wait.... my plan is to pick it up by trailer next week. It could theoretically drive, but it wasn't used much in the last year and its a 500km drive. My plan is to get it checked first before I'll take her on such a long trip. A few months ago I was planning another NC500 trip this year but due to all these crazy events I might skip it and wait for 2021 instead. Not sure which one to take then, some of the roads up there make me prefer the comfort ride of the Esprit over the pretty hard ride in the GT430. We'll see ...
  3. Thanks Lotusman! Yes, I personally like the look of the Speedlines. But having a set of Wolfrace rims would also be nice (anyone selling a set? I know how rare they are. Another teaser before I'll share more images: The owner has fitted the Panasonic RM-610 that came with the Essex Turbos into it! Again - does historically not "belong" into the S1, but really cool!
  4. Hello all, some may have met me with my Evora GT430 Sport at 70 years Hethel (I have fond memories of the time when it was okay to travel...especially for joy!). While I have not been very active on TLF, I did not stop thinking about the cars. Today I signed a deal to buy a restored 1977 S1 Esprit (sorry - LHD, I am still in Germany ). My goal is to make it a drivers car and not garage / showroom / collectors queen. As you will notice, the wheels are not "correct" (as well as a couple of other parts) but the overall condition is excellent (from what I know so far). Frame has been fu
  5. Hi guys! I can also confirm, got PS VR and it is worth the money. I am not playing that much, but Firewall Zero Hour is really good (besides the waiting times between the rounds). If we find two more, we could form a team!
  6. @PaulCP Thx, good hint! Will definitely do next time! Ferry companies have a „lowered car“ category and I was surprised that the tunnel operates don‘t have that.
  7. We‘ve just arrived in Maidstone for the night break before we head super early tomorrow morning towards Hethel. 1,5hrs traffic jam in Belgium... Friday afternoon driving fun! Any meet ups or convoys towards the festival site that we can join? We plan to arrive at around 8am in Hethel (so we can get to the club stand before the festival opens) which means we will leave Maidstone at around 6am Looking forward to finally meet you guys in person! (Photo attached - GT430 Sport on the tunnel. I was slightly worried about getting my first scratch in t
  8. What, does actually no one else around have a _Sport_?
  9. Okay, I‘ve checked the calendar and more than happy to attend with the GT430 Sport. i would need two tickets, happy to pay for them as well. Will also appreciate recommendations for hotels / appartments nearby for Fri - Sun. Thanks!!
  10. Does anyone from Germany plan to go? I‘m thinking of leaving on the 28th and am happy to join a group of people towards the ferries / the tunnel.
  11. I absolutely love the idea and was considering attending, have to check my calendar! Thanks a lot for organising it, @Bibs
  12. Thanks Scotty! Say hi if you‘re around as well Yes, it was quite a trip and only the second time a looong drive for the car. I‘ve spend most miles on the way to the Eifel area and around the Ring (only a few miles actually on the Ring...) on weekends so far. Getting some coffee and then queuing up for the gates to open soon.
  13. We successfully made it to Campsite H after leaving this morning at 6:30am from Germany. Nice drive in beautiful weather, looking forward to the festival opening tomorrow!
