It was great to see everyone last night, thanks again for organising, Paul. I've attached the podium pic, well done Tommy, Paul & Dean.  Having seen Dean's progress since buying a PS4, I'm go

Had a great time racing the old cars - the Cortina was a plucky little thing! 🙂 The 12th Nov is in my diary for next month, fingers cross I have my Lotus back for then!   In the meantim

Unfortunately, I cannot take credit for the pictures, they're "borrowed" from the Wonston Arms social media feed.

Hopefully we managed to tempt Steve out of his Mazda 😁

Hi all,

Long time lotus fan but newbie to this forum. 

Just having a surf and came across this meet on Monday 15th July in Stockbridge.  This is just down the road from me, If it is still on would it be ok to come along and meet some fellow lotus fans?  If so what time do you meet.

Well, that was an interesting trip home, hit a big pothole, completely blew out front tyre, damaged Alloy but luckily Dean was on hand to help out! Thanks mate!

Lotus assistance were first class, and eventually Tommy the car and I were recovered home at 2 am!

AA back in the morning to take car to Snows

I'm glad to hear that you and Tommy are okay.  Hopefully the council will quickly refund the cost of the wheel, tyre and alignment.

Oh no!! Hopefully no other damage to the rest of the car? You'd have been fine if your Lotus was wearing some nice 70 profile rubber...

Tommy was a bit shaken! Did make a Big Bang when it happened but it was really nice that Dean was with us!

Other than tyre and wheel in obvious bodywork damage, but will get Snows to check suspension etc!

Glad you got back safely - albeit pretty darn late.  I have to say it was pretty scary to watch, really thought for a moment that was going to go a lot worse than it did - you did really well to recover / catch it 👍

 

--------------------------------------------------------------

 

And for next months meet, we landed on trying out "The Red Shoe Inn" in Exton / Corhampton on Tuesday 20th August.

The general feeling from the recovery team and at Snows was it was the car that saved us!! Anything other than forged Alloy wheels would have broken up and we would have had no control, as it was, the tyre took the hit and the alloy whilst scuffed, held its shape and allowed me to continue to steer.

In the words of Mr Bond, I'm shaken but no stirred!

Pete

.......or 80 profile tyres!

The Onyx probably just bounced over it, where about's was the pot hole?

Really sorry to hear about this Simon, hope it all gets sorted soon for you!

Hi all,

First let me thank you all for welcoming me to my first meet really enjoyed chatting Lotus.  Seem like a bunch of really nice chaps and hope to see you at the next one.

Secondly, gutted to hear of your misfortune Simon.  Glad to hear you're unscathed and the gorgeous bodywork remains undamaged, hopefully a new wheel & tyre will see you right.

Bad luck Simon, hope its only the damage you can see and it's easily sorted.

Good luck claiming off the Council - round here if they've painted a white line round it that seems to exempt them from any liability whatsoever...

Not worth starting anything now...🍺
