Lotus Cars 23rd September 2007

Recommended Posts

except parking is at the Norfolk Showground rather than Hethel and then Buses will be laid on to get you to and from (Don't understand this with such a huge parking area).

Ian I understand what you say, but I sincerely hope this doesn't stop anyone coming to my birthday party as it will be great to see you all there. Also, MJK will be there and relaxing so you can have a "real" chat with him out of work mode.......not that I thought you wouldn't be coming for anything other than me of course!

Love the parking, allowing for starting the car, reversing out of the drive (having moved the Peugeot out of the way), I guess driving there will save me 5 mins over walking.

Needless to say, I'll be driving.

I'm on holiday from 21st!!!!! Can't believe I'm gonna miss this one! Will be advertising it on LEW to catch anyone who's not on here too often.

Spoken to Caroline and she says you just need to mention LEF/LEW when you ring up and book your tickets. Hopefully we can get strong numbers, which will show lotus that we are a big group and worth listening too!

I'm sure it'll be a great day with the LEF/LEW stand and 3 cars as a meeting point!

Really sorry to be missing this one!

I'll be there :wallbash:

Just spotted more info on the Club Lotus website (apologies if I've missed it in the thread)

Classic Team Lotus will have several of their fabulous F1 cars on track and Lotus Sport will also be demonstrating the GT3 and the Exige 265E. The 2-Eleven will also be along with, we're told, some 'surprises'.

Let's hope they get dry weather and Classic Team Lotus can put on an even better show of the cars than at their own rather damp 40th celebrations <_<

Mike Sekinger has offered his GT1 project to us for the stand too which is ace and also Gordon and Fraser have agreed to have 100G on the stand. That's BigSi, Mike S and Gordon Masson, nice :)

Been trying to get Caroline at Hethel to book, apparantly she's away on hols for another 10 days or so and the young lady who answered her phone had just started and didn't know of anyone else who could take bookings.

Great selection of cars there. Particularly looking forward to seeing Mike's.


Regards

Mat

It will be a privilege to have my car on display. I am also very much looking forward to meeting so many Esprit enthusiasts and there should be so much to see and do on the day.

Yeah, maybe a bit premature in e-mailing all the clubs as Caroline seems to be away.

I have been in contact with Wensum Valley and they have a "temporary" large booking over that weekend. I have spoken to Basil (the owner) and he has told them they have to book with deposits by next Monday or he opens up 50 rooms for us. So watch this space. As soon as he tells me I'll let you all know and then, assuming they don't pay, we need to get our bookings in quick to show commitment.

Will be great to sit and chat into the wee hours with you all again....twice in a month!!

The message on Caroline's answer machine said to ring Lesley on 01953 608461 for tickets in her absence. Mind you I didn't have much luck geting through to her either !.

Apart from ordering a ticket, could someone lay out the plans in a little more detail

eg: Hotel venue details if we are all meeting up on the Saturday, Meeting point location for the day etc,. I didnt do the last hethel so dont assume everyone is in the know.

cheers

Bibs,

In the meantime do we hold off ordering tickets etc?

I'm sure no one on here wants to miss out.

Order away, there are 6,000 tickets available so we should be fine, just say you are from LEF when you call.

Just phoned Lotus chasing tickets again to be told Caroline is now on holiday till the end of July and Lesley is dealing with ticket allocation. Lesley as usual is on answerphone but I've left a message asking for a return call.

Any news Kimbers on where we may be laying our drunken heads the night before?(subject to obtaining a ticket for the big event)

Cheers,

Graham.

Hi Gordon,

I booked the family room last year, what ever you do dont book this room. It's the smelliest and noisiest room in the hotel. it will keep you up all night! It's right underneather the kitchens and tee shop.

Well thats our flights booked :)

Fraser is chuffed that he is getting another trip down to Hethel... all we need now is a family room at the Wensum.

Lesley is in meetings today and tomorrow about the event so I'd try her on Friday. In total, with us and others, there will be 10,000 people there!

Kimbers is awaiting a reply from the Wensum Valley re availability and we'll know as soon as he knows :)

Really looking forward to it anyway :)
