04 Elise 111R - hello!!

Recommended Posts

Hi team. My name is Josh and I’m based on Brisbane, QLD. My dad Paul has brought me up around lotus (a series 1 Elise, series 2 Elise and now an evora). Has been a goal to one day pick one up and that time is here! I’ve just picked up (in feb) a 04 111R in black and it’s been a dream come true! These cars are seriously epic, the power is plenty! Needed some love, still does a little but getting there. Keen for a little bit of track/sprint stuff but mainly weekend twisties. You’ll definitely find me on Nebo/glorious most weekends. Looking forward to meeting more Elise nuts :)

Welcome to TLF Josh. :welcome:

Since you are in Brisbane, you need to take yourself up to Cairns (yes, I know it is a bit of a way) and do the road up to Yungaburra in the Tablelands. The Gillies Range Road. Take your father in his Evora as well. One of the twistiest pieces of road I can remember. Mind you, I was 11.

Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help. :) 

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

I just looked it up.

263 corners and 800m elevation in just 19km of road.

I hope the link works.

Welcome Josh and congratulations on making the transition to ownership.  I'm assuming you and your dad are aware it's the Lotus National meet near Brisbane from next Thursday to Sunday?  https://www.lotus2019.com.au/about/

I work for an Aussie company and lived in Brisbane for 6 months about 2 years ago.  Some amazing scenery and roads, both along the coast and inland.  I'm due to be over in a few weeks but booked the trip before hearing about the National, so will miss it by a couple of weeks.
