  1. Lotus Evija, my first attempt with Promarker Pens.
  2. Thank you everyone for all the likes and yes I did draw it myself. I just draw for my own pleasure, unfortunately I don't get around do doing that often. The one above was the last one I drew, probably about fifteen years ago, until my nephew requested a picture of Haas F1 car, which I did and got framed for him as part of his Christmas present last year, fortunately he was pleased with it. Now that the long dark nights are here, I'm feeling inspired to start another one, I had always planned to follow it with a drawing of Emerson Fittipaldi in a Type 72, drawn in the same style. @Stuart M
  3. I remember that print advertised in the back of magazines, I think there was a few different ones, a red Lancia Stratos, I can't remember the others, probably a Porsche. One of my drawings below, Jim Clark in a Lotus 49.
  4. I was traveling back from Angelsey in my Evora on Monday morning, heading towards Llandudno on the A55. Spotted a carbon grey series 1 Evora with red/paprika interior, travelling on opposite carriage way. I noticed it late, just the top half in view above the central reservation, but did manage to wave.
  5. Yeah, I got one, I expected them to have gone in an instance. I couldn't find at first, until I created an account and logged in, then the special edition issue, appeared for sale.
  6. Here are some none Lotus photo's from two recent car shows at Gawsworth Hall, in Cheshire. Classic Car Rally (Pre 1975), first Bank holiday in May and the Young Timers Car Show (70's, 80's & 90's), Bank holiday at the end of May. Lotus cars are exempt, both classic and modern are allowed, I have created a separate album in regional galleries for most of the Lotus cars that were present. The Lotus Drivers Club have a meet at Gawsworth Hall on Sunday 11th August, organised by andyelise135, see his topic in Events.

  8. Hi Neil, Thank you for the offer, I will take you up on that. I will be in touch.
  9. Hi, you are obviously well advanced with this project with a lot of contacts made already. The period of 1983-1994 was my era, if you like, my first Grand Prix being the British 1982. Like you I am just a fan, so I hope you find a publisher for your book and I will have to get a copy. If in the meantime, if you find you are missing any race reports, just let me know.
  10. Hi Neil, Sorry I have only just picked up on this topic. Yes, 1991 was the last year these race report cards were produced. Race reports of a similar style were published in the Club Team Lotus monthly newsletter/magazine, called 'Lotus World', which included news from Team Lotus and Lotus Cars. In early 1990, Lotus Cars withdrew funding for the magazine and 'Lotus World' ceased. However Team Lotus continued to publish the race reports in the race card format, for club members, now known as Team Lotus Associates. Obviously 1991 was a financially difficult year for the team and there were
  11. Hi, no this was the Sunday after the race, I was in a black Evora travelling to J15A to join M1. I flashed him, to let him join A43 from slip road. Same shade of blue, as yours and was definitely a V8, badge on the back and the right front end, but I'm sure the rear wing/spoiler, had been removed. I may be doubting that fact now, but I'm pretty certain.
  12. I agree with all of the above, not much more to add. Love the attention to detail, the aero concept, you don't even notice the lack of tail pipes sticking out the back and looking at stats, dare I say the Valkyrie has just been top trumped. I was sceptical about all electric cars, but if they're like this, then bring it on. How long now before all the big boys, launch full electric hyper cars.
  13. Ah what, he must have said the same to everyone. We will have to share it. Any way, hope you enjoyed the weekend.
  14. I keep coming across this car at different events, Lotus 70, Autosport show and now the British GP. Bought a ticket at the Autosport show and the man said I was going to win it, so no one else needs apply. The tailgate has now been signed by the F1 drivers, all it needs now, is to add my signature. Because literally it has my name on it. Although if I did win it, I don't think I could drive it, it's too precious.
