Enjoyed the event at Lotus and I was just a chauffeur for the Father of BLUE Esprit Turbo SE (V8 PLC)... Particularly liked the staff as always at Hethel who are friendly and very knowlegeable. And the bacon baps and coffee. Lotus Lisa laughed as Lotus Dave (the tall driver of the Evora at the racetrack who you lucky people followed...) recounted the story of the copper coloured Esprit he drove back to Cortina for the James Bond movie ''For your Eyes Only' and they had to wait days for the snow, so bought a machine to make it! They stayed for a few drinks instead, oh and yes, it replaced the white Esprit shell that was blown up. Original car resides at the Bond Collection at Keswick Museum complete with skiis, so a good idea for one of your jaunts, Bibs. Envied the enthusiasts whose cars made my mouth water-so just joined. Many thanks.
