The open day takes place on Saturday 17th August, and his year, Malcolm Ricketts has very kindly agreed to reserve a small parking space for any Elites and Eclats in order to mark the 45th anniversary of these cars. In addition, it looks as though Oliver Winterbottom, Richard Morley and Peter Lucas will be there, so we will have a great opportunity to talk with these former Lotus executives, all of whom were involved in different aspects of the development and launch of the cars.

Malcolm Ricketts has a wonderful collection of Lotus cars from the 50s and 60s, mainly linked with his classic Lotus racing activities. In addition there will be a display of machinery brought by visitors. I haven't visited before but have heard very positive feedback from people who have, and it is well worth a visit just to look at Lotus history in the metal.

Here is the Club Lotus link to the event showing limited information at the moment:

I understand that it is not necessary to book with Malcolm Ricketts, but if you would like to bring your Elite or Eclat along, please contact me so that I can ensure you have a space in the 45th anniversary parking. It will be necessary to arrive before the event opens (at 12.00) in order to access the parking. Any spare space can be allocated to Excels of course!

Finally, it is an outdoor event so is weather dependent, and may not go ahead if conditions aren't suitable.

Hope to see you there, Richard
