Rinse. Snow Foam. Wash. Rinse. Claybar. Wax. 

Time taken 4.5 hours.

Feeling left in right arm, zero.

Estimated time to a pigeon shitting on all my hard work, 3 minutes.

I couldn't decide which colour i like the most between black and red, i think that's just made my mind up.  

Central Lotus have a beautiful low mileage metallic black 400 just about to come in for a good price if anyone wants a black one!

That's decided it for me.

I was debating between Win Ace's GTE replica bumper and this McLaren-inspired offering - definitely going the Macca route now.

Just got to get my car back on the road first of course, which hopefully won't be too long now that the replacement clutch master cylinder is winging it's way here from the good ole US of A.

Hi Dave

I spotted you on Saturday lunchtime on  Douglas promenade.

It' shame I didn't see you at the Supercar morning on Sunday.  How long are you over for?

Steven

Hi Steven, came over on Thursday , had the privilege of joining the supercars for first run over mountain when it reopened  one way.  You would have seen me just before leaving the island on the Saturday.IMG_1613.thumb.JPG.32bdb9812c4b99ab2386da38d930cc8d.JPG

   What a great place the IOM is ...very jealous.

Thanks Dave

I think it's a great place to live (particularly when it's sunny!), but I'm a native so probably bias.

Hope you can stay for longer next time. Colin P and few of the others on here are coming over in late July for a long weekend.

@SteveIOM I'm coming over in July with Colin and the crew and can't wait, my first visit to the IoM. My surname comes from the IoM and traced the lineage back to their. However, my view of the IoM was always that it was either raining or misty, or raining and misty!  Is that the truth? Now please remember I've lived in Scotland for the past 22 years, so I'm not throwing stones from a glass house!

Desperately hoping for good weather for the trip.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

We're probably related then...

I expect the general climate here is no different to Scotland. I have plenty of Scottish friends who have moved to the Island and never complained about the weather!

The difficulty we have is unpredictability. We had nearly 3 weeks of sun and barely a rain shower in May, but we can just as easily have a week of rain in July or August. We also seem to have a microclimate where the weather can differ significantly in different parts of the Island or during a single day. You can go out for a drive or bike ride and encounter sun, rain, hail, mist, strong winds and sun again in the space of an hour. Anybody competing in motorsport here has to be a meteorologist in order to choose the correct tyres and set up.

You've got a chance of great weather in July, but even mixed weather shouldn't spoil your fun in an Evora (particularly the lighter 2+0 NA model... )

Lol thanks @SteveIOM. Sounds like where I am in Scotland. On the east coast so drier than the west, but yes, 4 seasons in one day as the 80's song goes....!

@SteveIOM it's always sunny in Ramsey. :P

Nice to see the cars at the Ramsey Park Hotel - our usual haunt, although this year we are at the Mannin in Douglas as we left it too late to book.

@C8RKH Don't worry, as a Lotus Group we have had sunny weather for the last 3 years. I went back just after last years trip (like 4 days later) with the family and we got drowned - so I've taken the allocation of rain on the groups behalf.

@DJW bugger, I'd hoped I'd be the first to introduce the Island to a 400 Auto :wallbash:. I have in my head the concept of how good the paddles will be going up the gooseneck :scared:. Soon there will be one living on the Island.

ps - could you tell yet what they are building next door to the Hotel - they had only just started it last year and we were not sure if it was going to be an extension?

pps - Did you have someone from Evo with you - that looks like their MINI JCW Challenge?

Re Mini, it could have been one of the S9S guys as quite a few of them bought them for track days
