  3. Hi all, on 10/4/2011 I am organising for the nineth time a Lotus run in the Brugge region (Belgium) for Club Team Lotus Belgium. We start with a breakfast between 09:00 and 10:00, followed by a run of about 100 km with a roadbook. Lunch at noon followed by a second run of about 120 km. Reception and diner at 18:00. Prices are not fixed yet but will be around 55-60 euro per person all in. More details will be posted as we get closer to the date. Mark the date on your new 2011 agenda and plan a long weekend in our nice region. Brugge, Gent, Ypres are all at less than a one our drive away. Visit those historical cities or go shopping for easter. If you need a hotel I can give you some good adresses. Interested ? contact me at [email protected] or [email protected] kind regards Bert Lotus 2-eleven / Elan sprint
  4. for what it's worth : in my former Elise s2, when i pushed the pedal to the ground the butterfly in the throtllebody wasn't 100% open. By correcting the cable i gained at least 5 bhp ! Bert
  5. So, this will mean the end of the 2-eleven ? Would be interesting to know how many cars are build in total ? Will the 2-eleven start to grow to a classic ? If you want one, hurry up as prices want go down from now on !
  6. Well people, I had the same problem last weekend with these mirrors, so I tried to tighten them. suddenly had my mirror in my hand...this mirrorbody is fixed to the stalk with a balljoint, but the tightening nut + spring is located in the mirrorbody behind the mirrorglass... so I tried to get the glass out of the body by putting the plastic body in very hot water to soften the plastic, as it is a snap assembly. In the end, altough I was very carefull, the glass did end of story. A quick search on the net and with the info that the mirror is from a Yamaha Fazer( thanks to this forum !) I came out by the manufacturer (VICMA) of these mirros wich is Spanisch( does that say/mean something ??) You can download the complete catalogue here but this should be the one (see picture) so of to the yamaha dealer or an order over here, only 49 euro for a pair ! http://www.onlinemot... mirror 211.bmp
  7. I can only recommend them, have them on my car with Pagids and this works excellent Bert
  8. Happy birthday to my 2-eleven ! Last year on good friday i did my first drive on the road with my 2-eleven. Since then it has been a nice compagnon to me. About 12000 km, some 5 trackdays, yesterday at Croix-en-Ternois with Lotus on Track to 'celebrate' the occasion. I do a lot of km's on normal roads an untill now it was always a pleasure. Only downside of the low ride height is that you tough the street now and then. I had to repleace the alu-sheet on the front because there were cuts growing through the sheet and the whole nose became to much play up and down. No other problems to report !! Its a mighty headturner but I always had nice reactions. I enjoy it every time I come out. the only thing we need now is a little bit more dry and sunny days ! Bert
  9. Well I closed 2009 last sunday with a little drive in the elan sprint and opened 2010 this afternoon with a short blast in the 2-eleven. It was around zere C but well packed in a good lotus fleece and jacket it was not cold at all. People turned their heads even more than usual! It was a bit tricky on the road but i needed the rush of blood ! good new year !! Bert
  10. If you want to drive it without helmet i strongly advise you a touratech windscreen you can clips on te windscreen. Especially if you are a bit taller. Keeps the flies and grit out of your face! I tend to drive it with helmet. My dealer has a brian james but don't know the type. Its a perect fit !
  11. some incredible pictures ! some 20 old europes in the same shot Keep up posting !
  12. Congrats and have fun, ...altough the good weather seems to be over Bert
  13. thanks for the input ! I think i'll contact jim at 2bular
  14. Last weekend there were the VAB-days at Zolder (Belgium), something like the RAC organising a cars-day at Donnington. With Lotus we were well presented (35 cars)to give people their first track drive as a passenger. It was a lot of fun untill i got flagged for the first time at 95,8dB and 2 runs later black flagged at 95,2. 95 dB was allowed Do you guys have experience with systems like supertrapp add-on mufflers or other brands ? I don't want to change my stage 1 silencer (i love the sound) but neither do i like to ruin a track day because of 1dB ! All advise is appreciated ! Bert
  15. Thanks, here's another one to keep on drooling artisic photo made by a friend Bert and a side view
  16. Scotty, you have to make the straps in front a bit shorter so the shower cape comes more over the window! And ofcoarse use the rearmirror as well. Oh and luckaly the shower cap is waterproof !! I was in June at Croix when at noon there was an rainstorm like on your picture. Trackday was over and had to return home (250 km) in this 'pissing' weather. Had to drive trough a junction-lake of about 10 cm of water... Even after those 250 very wet km I was still reasonably dry inside (waterproof jacket) Bert
  17. Tam, i just picked up my Elan Sprint at i know why you mentioned the trees! Bad luck btw... Bert
  18. Hello TAM, it is with Lotus on track. Sure the trees are a bit near the track, so is the wall at the top of the Radillion in Spa...It's not for racing, just to have fun in a more safe manner then on open roads, where you have trees, houses, oncomming cars and more fools then you will find on a trackday with LoT... if you are pushing your luck any road or trackday is dangerous Bert
  19. Got my first drive in a 2-eleven at Folombray last year in oktober. Now that i own one myself i could not stay at home. Who is joining me ?? Scotty hope to see you back !! Bert
  20. better this way then the other way around ...
  21. Is that including your racing scotty ? Or do you use other wheels on the racing events ? I have now 5000 (km) since april 10... Bert
  22. Mydealer has installed a combo of the front wheel arche protections of a elise an exige! looks great works perfect ! It also protects the oil coolers from stones Bert
