  1. Hi Nick. I think I recall reading somewhere that the "Do not remove the roof" message is really to do with the possibility of less aerodynamic stability with the roof off at speeds in excess of circa 140/150 mph. I'm sure you are not likely to be driving at such speeds 😉, at least not on roads in the UK anyway!
  2. Hi Andy Thanks very much for joining the group! I'm afraid @KeithK and I met for a great afternoon at Bishopscourt on Tuesday afternoon this week. We definitely hope to do it again but likely next year before we organise it again. I had never been to Bishopscourt before Supercar Sunday but must say I really like the track. From my own point of view, I have been lucky to take my car on track 3 times in the last month and want to give the tyres and brakes a rest after that 😬! I do hope to organise another run out for the group sometime in the early autumn. @Cooper on here also has an Emira on order and is also looking forward to getting it in the autumn. Hope you can join us at the autumn run out. Ryan
  3. Hi Nick Go for it - the 420 is absolutely fantastic and you won't regret it for a second. There is some good information on 3 way settings at I haven't had tried any of these myself yet, but starting to think about doing so. Ryan
  4. Great day out at the NI Supercar Sunday event at Bishopscourt today - 4 confirmed TLF members @RP420, @KeithK, @AR13 MEO and @Cooper and we all got a few laps in, as well as fielding a lot of interest in Lotus and getting a chance to see some awesome machinery both in the paddock and in action. There were also another couple of Lotus in attendance and hopefully they, and a few other very interested enquiries, will join this group. Many thanks to @Bibs for funding the purchase of the TLF and Lotus banners that we displayed - the banners. got home safely so will live on to advertise our NI group on future days! @KeithK is keen to have another session at Bishopscourt and I'm certainly up for that, now that I know which way the track goes! The first lap was fairly nerve-wracking as I had no idea where the track went, having never driven it before! If we could organise a track session there sometime, please drop a note on this thread if you would be interested in attending. Some Lotus photos from the paddock:
  5. Hi Johnny. Sorry for the delay in responding. The velcro does stick well to the overmats in my car so my footrest simply sits on top of the overmats. Pic below
  6. Great news Keith - thanks for letting me know. @1973 JPS Richard - apologies - just realised I didn't respond to you previously. Thanks for the update and hope you might be able to make it. Bibs has very kindly paid for a couple of logo banners (TLF logo and Lotus logo) which we can use to mark out our Lotus section in the display area. Gareth and I are meeting/departing from The Temple garage at 8.15 on Sunday morning to head down. Keith - you are welcome to join us there too if that suits, or alternatively we can meet you at Bishopscourt. Same of course applies to Michael, Richard and Andy if any of you are able to make it along. Fingers crossed for decent weather - current forecast is at least dry! Looking forward to a good day. Ryan
  7. Hi Michael Thanks for your note. Enjoy the jetski! (and still hoping we might see you on Sunday 🙂) Cheers Ryan
  8. Gareth - Sounds like a good plan - how about meeting at The Temple garage at 8.15 and heading down from there? Displaying cars are to arrive between 8.30 and 10.00, so if we meet at 8.15 we should be in Bishopscourt for about 9am. Andy - congratulations on the new arrival! Hope all going well? Hope we do see you, but totally understand if not. R
  9. @Mike150 @AR13 MEO @Cooper @KeithK @1973 JPS Hi All Hope you are all still able to make it to Bishopscourt on Sunday?! I have to let Aaron Cunningham, the organiser, know numbers. Could I please ask you all to drop a note on this thread confirming if you are still planning to attend? Many thanks in advance. Ryan
  10. Hi Johnny I fitted the footrest recently by just putting it down on the carpet. The parts I purchased included heavy duty sticky-back velcro and foam to prevent the footrest from chafing against the aluminium divider between passenger and driver footwells. I purchased parts 3,4 and 5 from the following page on B&C's DeRoure parts website Good luck Ryan
  11. Hi Richard Hope you had a great holiday and thanks for your note. Thanks too for the pointer to the Vintage Vehicle group - request to join submitted! Hope you can make it to Supercar Sunday! Cheers Ryan
  12. Hi All For those who plan to attend Supercar Sunday, if you haven't already done so please go ahead and buy your tickets via the following link Once you have purchased your ticket, please register your car at this link Registered Lotus will have a reserved parking spot in the display area and I believe you may have the opportunity to take your car on track too. I have asked Bibs about getting hold of some TLF/Lotus flags or banners to highlight our group display area and he has confirmed this should be possible. Fingers crossed for good weather and look forward to seeing you there! Ryan
  13. Great news Keith! Look forward to seeing you on the Sunday! R
  14. Great news Andy! Your GR Yaris will fit in well with the other Toyota engined cars 😉. Sorry I can't make the RMS Cars and Coffee this weekend as I'm away on hols, but have the 7th August in my diary! 4 so far! R
