  1. Christopher Neil/Oakmere have Lotus, Caterham and Morgan (and possibly TVR in the future?).
  2. New recruit for the Geely Design Centre at Coventry. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/industry/jaguar-designer-joins-geely-head-uk-design-centre
  3. My PC sim of choice is still the great "Grand Prix Legends". Where else can I get to drive Lotus 33, 41B, 48, 43, 49, 49B and 63 and many, many other classic race cars on a massive selection of historic (and dangerous race tracks). There is a new update to the Hethel track. This is based on the pre-Bahar era layout. Details can be found here. http://srmz.net/index.php?showtopic=12742&st=0&gopid=138159&#entry138159 Leads me to ask has anybody got maps and/or information on the usage of the track before the changes circa 1999. Did it just use the perimeter road and the main runway? I can only find the snippet on the factory web site stating the original track was 2.5 miles long. Any info/history please?
  4. And nice to see that the Lotus 72 that I ordered from Santa is on the production line, just in time for Xmas....... if only.
  5. Not Lotus Motorsport, but promising signs of Geely seeing value in going racing.... https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/lynk-co-reveals-493bhp-concept-car-based-tcr race car
  6. Seeing this on twitter...... Check out @grouplotusplc’s Tweet: ...made me wonder if the Lotus marketing department might point out that Lotus started with performance "off roaders". How many other suv manufacturers can say that. (LR and lamborghini were more utility than sports )
  7. Group Lotus plc is delighted to announce the appointment of Phil Popham as Senior Vice-President – Commercial Operations for Group Lotus and CEO – Lotus Sports Cars, effective from 01 October 2018. Phil will report to Group Lotus plc CEO, Mr Feng Qingfeng http://www.lotuscars.com/news/corporate/lotus-appoints-phil-popham-senior-vice-president-commercial-operations-group-lotus
  8. Reminds me of my visit to the Reno air races a few years back. There the plane ran into the "car".
  9. https://www.autocar.co.uk/slideshow/man-who-owns-400-cars#2 Including an M250.....
  10. Some interesting suv and non-suv Lotus design info from Horbury. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-beijing-motor-show/lotus-suv-will-put-brand-more-luxury-market
  11. Just seen the sad news that John Miles passed away yesterday (8th April). An important man in Lotus car DNA. I remember reading an article speculating how far his influence on good handling had spread via engineers who had worked for/with him. Including Ford Focus ang Golf mk5 IIRC. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Miles_(racing_driver)?wprov=sfla1 https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/archive/article/october-2014/88/lunch-john-miles
  12. Sorry NedaSay. I was browsing on my phone and didn't spot your motorsport post. Yes the Frankel piece is just speculation. It is like a "phoney war" at the moment. Lots going on behind the scenes, whilst we all wait impatiently for some big announcement. Always good to read your insightful posts.
  13. A couple of items of interest. https://www.pistonheads.com/news/general-news/geely-group-motorsport-created/37740 https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/opinion/road-cars/should-lotus-relocate
