  1. Thanks for that Michael - really interesting. The photo was taken on a charity track day in 2014. As was this
  2. look at 225/60 15s. This is the active thread for tyres for our cars
  3. It'll be interesting to see how much faster posting on the area monthly PM is with 98 active recipients (I have removed 30 members from the list). I normally go and make a cup of coffee while it is sending
  4. Problem is that they are talking about modern cars, all of my moderns have had a towing eye. Classics don't, and I don't think you can retro fit one - or would even want to. Try Bell & Colvill - they have a track day in September at Castle Combe - I've been with them before - never had this requirement with them. But being open to non-Lotus cars is a bit of a negative for me - however, if you go, I'll go as well.
  5. Been on plenty of trackdays in my Esprit, never had that as a requirement. I guess it will be down to whoever the organisers are. Have you tried Lotus-On-Track? I think that this one would be good one to go on: Hethel - Lotus Test Track | Saturday 18 September 2021 - Lotus on Track (
  6. Hi jacob - welcome to Lotus ownership. You do need to be aware that once you have one, a second one beckons Whereabouts are you? It would be great to have two black N/A HCs together at one of our monthly meetings (Paul's phot is from last Sunday's breakfast meet). Chris PS - more photos please.
  7. Oh bum.... I completely forgot about this, and I worked late today, just got in.
  8. Loose carpet? It's a known potential problem in Excels with the throttle pedal being caught by the carpet. I find the HC engine in my Excel is way better at hot starting that the LC one in my Esprit, so I never worry about it, whereas in the Esprit it can be a bit of a turning over the engine for while.
  9. I've got a YUASA 075 SILVER in my 82 Esprit. From Halfords £110, Amazon < £70. Mine came from Halfords, but as a replacement for a YUASA BLACK with a lifetime guarantee that didn't last a lifetime I had to buy one of these for the "modern" post connector
  10. To reiterate to people signing up who haven't been to one of these events before, we will send out the address by PM to all those who have registered a couple of days before the BBQ, so it important that you sign up. In addition Dave and Megan need to know numbers to as to be able to plan accordingly. Can I ask all those who have already registered to indicate if they are going to stay overnight. To this end I am working on my family to come and camp - not 100% sure yet, but it is a distinct possibility
  11. Great photos Glad that yours started - It's normally the turbos that give problems hot starting. It's good to see that M100s are regularly coming to the meetings. I think that this is the 3rd one running where we've had at least 3 turn up.
