  1. Hi everyone, I've been asked to see if I can get some Lotus cars together on 03rd December 2020 for Ollie’s funeral. We will follow the funeral car around Wymondham, Norfolk as a rolling tribute. All Lotus cars are welcome but cars penned by Ollie will lead the precession. It will take about an hour (11am - 12pm) and sadly the funeral is restricted numbers, as I’m sure lots of you would like to pay your respects, well let’s do that by showing up with our cars and give a Lotus Legend a fantastic send off. please let me know if you can attend. I’ll post up specifics a little later.
  2. I'm in, do you want to pop round to mine en-route buddsy. I will see if we can drag andydclements out for a pint too
  3. Hi, I'm lucky enough to own a Lotus Sport 110 bike as risen by Chris Boardman. Even luckier is that mine is a British built frame rather than a South African built bike so it is 1 of 50. there is a Sport 110 register on Facebook called Lotus 110 club and we are trying to organise an event at Hethel in 2017. I'm sure it will be a great spectacle to see these iconic machines lapping their spiritual home and if anyone would like to participate I will post up more details later. i could really do with a little leverage with Lotus as my requests to borrow the track is just bouncing round

  5. My Hitachi S114 945 starter motor has died, I suspect it is the contact bushes. The S114 945 is a Lotus Evora only starter motor but I've heard that S114 943 bushes fit. Does anyone have experience/knowledge on this matter? many thanks
  6. Running and charging so just some bug squashing to do and I'm good to go ?
  7. I will do my best for the Bird In Hand on the 20th but Monday's are difficult for me. let me know if you're going out on the 1st or 3rd, I'd love to meet up
  8. The weather is improving and the nights are pulling out so anyone up for an evening drive? I fancy taking in some of the North Norfolk Coastal Road, but I'm pretty flexible depending on who come and where they are from. Simonf
  9. I am lucky enough to own a Lotus type 110 bike. I plan on riding it. They aren't that light if I am honest, but their 5-1 foil shape (banned now by the UCI) is super clean through the air, which makes them very fast. i went and had a chat with Mike Burrows the other day, he lives on the next road over from me and it was fascinating to learn that it was already a 10 year old design before Chris Boardman had got his hands on one. Mike had tried to sell the design to people like Raleigh who had laughed at his design. i also like that Mike was doing his own time trial in Bungay,
  11. There are quite a few evening track days available for June for Snetterton 300. Is anyone interested?
  12. Thanks for organising Buddsy, I had a great time and it was nice to see you all again and meet those I hadn't met before. I'm very much looking forward to the next
  13. Yesterday, whilst going through some of my late dad's stuff I found his plans for the Lotus Factory on Potash Lane, Hethel. I should explain that he was Colin Chapman's Architect during the 70's and very early 80's and some may have heard my funny anecdotes about the Jeer Jet hanger and electric garage doors. I found it fascinating going through them, there were plans for Ketteringham Hall and a yacht station at Brundall which I can only assume was Moonraker boats (Colin's luxury speed boas company) I can never get any photos up on here for some reason so maybe Bibs could get them off my F
