Time to start thinking about this one...... Who's going? (copy, paste and add your name to the bottom in your reply)

1. Wookie (hopefully my car will be fixed by then)


In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.<br />

In practice, there is!

Wookie,

Thanks for kicking this one off but you missed 2 things. One that I am always top of the list and two that you simply fill in the regular suspects because you know they won't let you down.

1. Trevsked (with the magazine queen)

2. Wookie (hopefully my car will be fixed by then)

3. Sparky (all shiney and red) That's the car not............

4. Internets (mit new gearbox)

5. Felix (OTT wings and wheels)

6. Dave Freeman (show and shine)

7. Bibs (because his meets don't involve going out in Lotus and he gets to drive his car there) Wonder if he will bite on that one?

Should be daylight by the time we all get there so hope for proper pics.

Trevor.


I'll get around to it at some point.

Dave, yup, it's the Marcos....

Come on down to the Ace. Not everyone turns up in a Lotus (I never do as I haven't got a complete one... 0r even half a driver yet!).

It's the meeting and chatting that's important and you may get some clues as to what your problem is from the guys as there are often Elites and Eclats there apart from the Esprits, Elans, Elises etc... sometimes an Evora will pop in too....

If you don't turn up in a Lotus, there's a bunch of parking over the road or round the corner... so no excuses really.....

Trev, sorry about any confusion caused by my temporarily forgetting where you live in the 'food chain'... "Help, roll up and see the oppression of the masses!"

Attending:-

3. Sparky (all shiney and red) That's the car not............

^ Still the biggest meet of the year Trev, in Kent, with 50+ cars. We even had a cup of tea too, just like you Londoners do at the Ace :)

Kent taking credit for that meet ( and there are more Esprit's outside Sparky's house on a Saturday than went to Brands) is akin to SLEG making the Ace one of their meets.:).

You did bite then:).

Trevor.

Hmm, perhaps the go-karting has to be Kent vs London with a financial incentive. Whaddya think, big guy?

Come on guys and gals... we've got to beat the Bibsmeister for greatest number of cars at a meeting this year or he'll be insufferable.

Bragging rights just have to belong to the London section! Get signed up for this one......

Maybe we could swell our numbers by getting EAG to turn up! Well, maybe not...

Anyhoo, my attendance is subject to the usual caveat: No idea whether I'll be in-country.

Yup - should be all fixed in time - they are rebuilding the head, doing the engine mounts, replacing the alternator, doing the cam belt and rebuilding the carbs.... costing me a fortune but I want it to be right!

It would be good if Bibs turned up in a Lotus badged go-kart to show us poor LEG types how it should be done......

Sorry guys, I'm currently in Estonia with work and won't be back for this.

Take lots of pics - I want to see loads of photos of shiny white number plates in the darkness!
