The Lotus Forums 'Factory Frolic' 2009

Recommended Posts

This year our forums are coming together for a supermeet; Esprit, 2Eleven and Evora with 250 people attending a weekend extravaganza in Norfolk.

The plan is:

Saturday 17th October - Visit our hotel which is about 4 miles from the factory, check in and freshen up ready for a huge fund raising visit to Cromer on the north Norfolk coast where we'll rattle tins and be met by local radio/papers etc. After this we'll return to the hotel for evening grub in our exclusive 250 person marquee for the charity auction, raffle, fun and games. Bar's open 'til late.

Sunday 18th October - En masse 50+ Lotus convoy to the Lotus Factory where we'll enjoy a great day. Events will include; Track 'parade' laps in your car, road drive in an Evora (every person can have a go!), Factory Tours, shop visit, ASO auto jumble, styling talks from Russell Carr/Steve Crijns, technical talks from Rob Savin/Roger Becker, Evora track demonstration laps, Classic Team Lotus cars, Evora development story, Lotus product displays, Lotus Sport and more. Lunch will be included and there will be beauticians on site to offer treatments to those not quite so interested in the cars, a family event! Goodie bags for all attendees and more!

The 4* luxury hotel is offering a huge discount on rooms, it's a beautiful venue and I'll post details for the reservations number and codes shortly, we've even negotiated 10% off the bar prices!!!

Tickets will be offered firstly to those who wish to attend the whole weekend and are limited in numbers. If we don't have enough weekend attendees then we'll offer Sunday only tickets but this is unlikely.

We did this before in '06, raised £5k and had 100-ish Esprits on site, this time it's bigger and better :)

More details and ticket links to follow shortly :)

* Please note that Lotus have specified that this event is open to over 18's only.

Nice one Bibs. Thats the post I've been waiting for!

Bigger and better than 06? - If its just 50% as good as 2006 It'll be worth going to.


Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Well done Bibs and Laura.

I love to join the event and I'm looking forward to see you all again.

Our problem is that looks like we don't have time to drive. Must go by Ryanair. But I try to discuss with my boss about extra holiday.

Tickets will be sold for then events and this includes a discount code for the hotel, but it's up to the individual if or where they want to stay and hotels can be booked separately :)

Wow bloody hell sounds fab!

Im not sure how it will work out for me as I live local and have no working Lotus? I will be able to lend a hand though if any help is required. Or if anybody needs any local info.

Maybe I could do a charity taxi from the Train/Bus Station/airport to the hotel for those ariving that way? Just an idea.

It's quite a way off (weeks not even days) so you just need to GET YOUR FINGER OUT and get the TE working.

That's how I got mine on the road in the end, in 2006 I decided |I wanted to take it on the factory day so i had to re-build the engine and fit it back into the car with no manual that covered that odd combo of engine & car. It was rather a tight deadline but it passed its MOT and went for the little trip to Gt Yarmouth.

I plan to have the S3 sorted, so I guess somebody could drive that.
