Lotus celebrates 60 years


Bibs

Recommended Posts

Following on from the success of last years event Lotus are looking forward to a bigger and better celebration to mark 60 years of Lotus.

Who's coming?

I'm organising a day out on the Saturday which will be fund raising and a nice drive around Norfolk ending up at the factory for a BBQ and some time with the 'Eagle' which everyone is welcome to aswell, more details to follow on that once I have them. The Sunday will be an amazing day if last year is anything to go by and if we get enough interest I'll either have a joint LEF/2EF stand or we'll have a separate stand for 2Elevens there too, ace :D

Anyone pointed out their spelling error? :D

Doh!!

You mean it should have read "Best in Snow" competition? Donnington entries only count if the car was driven by the owner :)

Sounds interesting - I will keep an eye out for further details (like how to "register")

I spoke to them about the typo, hence the new poster above!

We'll need 2 x 2Elevens for the stand, any volunteers? :D

Add mine if needed.

Be there all weekend.

Lasy year was a monumental effort, handing over a "new" S1 Esprit to an American mate of mine - missed much of it but what an amazing weekend.

I hope we'll all be blessed with the same weather as last year.............

Cheers,

Scott.

I think an original one ( as I said I volunteer mine) Mark's orange one and maybe one in one of the other colours. Jo's would be nice but don't know if she is going?

Perhaps the Black "special" will have been completed and liveried by then.....

No worries - I take PX's!!!!

Don't say that - I don't want to know how much mine has depreceiated after only 2 months and 1600 miles :D

I cam imagine the converstation

Scott: So has it been used on track at all?

me: erm, a little bit

Scott: and has it stayed on the tarmac or has it been off?

me: has been off once or twice

Scott: Do you always change up early or does the change light come on frequently?

me: Change light - what change light? Oh do you mean that red light in the rev counter that comes on just before the rev limiter cuts in?

Scott: How much fuel is in the tank - if it is full, that may double the amount I can offer in PX

The way oil prices are going a full tank of petrol will be worth more than the car in a years time. And don't worry about the red light it also flashes when the traction control kicks in or do you dial that out complely?

Feel the start of a new topic thread, best setting for the traction control.

The "Special" will not be a wrap. The colour is Phantom Black........a factory offering that differs to Motorsport Black, or indeed Starlight Black; it's pure Jet.

The graphics will be made up hopefully in association with a chap that Clive at Classic Team Lotus knows; accuracy is everything, from the font, to the colour of the vinyl. It was also suggested that I could fit a JPS nose badge a la Type 72, which I did not think was available.

I need to work on the graphic design a little more, run it past CTL - as I'd like their blessing. It's not a dealer special edition, or a factory edition; I've ordered the car in my name and intend to make something that I really want. With this in mind No.21 will be sold as a used example, and as an original Motorsport Works built car.

Dell - don't worry too much about depreciation; I will have a car available for immediate delivery, but that'll go quickly and I'm now October if a customer wants to order a new one. Remember too, the launch edition SVA spec is now

Sounds like it will be a fantastic looking car. Surprised you are going to trade in one of the original Motorsport built cars though. Wouldn't it have been easier/cheaper to get your repainted or are you planning to do much more than that.

PGN....

Funny - this has been going through my mind as well; original "works Motorsport car".....

Off for a fortnight in Spain in it and I fear that we will bond. If I can't bear to see it go, then it'll stay. The "special" will find a home I'm sure.....

Dell - I take PX!

Cheers!

Scott.
