Karl - According to LEW, there are approximately 1500 Esprits road-registered in the UK :lol:

Karl,

Going by your drinks preference list , you move in circles that boast some real tough cookies amongst their number.

Way too butch for me. I'm too limp wristed to drink anything as exotic as you and the Del Boys !!

If enough notice with dates - Yes please with esprit and B/B.

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

Count me and my missus in (and overnight stay/beer too). We won't be in an Esprit.....however we will be in a Range Rover and could drive past Heathrow/Gatwick to collect anyone with with a funny accent....

Can't believe I only just picked up on this one... it's been that kind of week!

Have to say, this sounds like a "not to be missed" event!

All depends on date, but am considering driving the V8 over from Switzerland for this. If I can't drive, I'll fly instead. Either way, would need accomodation.

As soon as a date is fixed, I'll check my chances for time out of the office, and confirm attendance with / without Esprit.

Kimbers - Fantastic idea, very excited! I'll make every effort to get there with the Esprit once I know a date, probably plus one passenger but no accommodation required.

Looking at the LEW calendar for 'important' weekdays, I see that 17th July is the 40th anniversary for Lotus at Hethel (I guess they might have other things planned for that day :lol: ), and 3rd August is the day 'The Spy Who Loved Me' was released in '77 (how many of us bought an Esprit because of that!). Can't make the first week in July unfortunately due to a prior booking.

I may also be able to offer an Esprit seat for airport collections on the way up as my likely plus one is a mate who lives in Wymondham... some passenger juggling required close to Hethel but nothing beyond the wit of man... :)

Cheers,

Dan.

Hi all just got back and seen more of our bretheren with funny accents have said they will come. I fully believe that this will be the one Lotus do not to miss!

Please take into account that no date has yet been set. I have been intouch with the factory and they really want to make it a special day, but there are some confidential things going on in the factory that mean it may take a bit longer than early July. Obviously, the more notice the better for some so this may be better for some.

I was also thinking of some kind of mass display/convoy to Yarmouth promenade (Obviously will have to notify the old bill for an escort).

Oh and I forgot....I'll need to ride shotgun aswell. ANy offers?

Computers on the Fritz so trying to repair it this afternoon, please reply to Bibs's post regarding numbers Hotel etc so that I can give Lotus an accurate figure next week. This may determine a date for doing it.

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.

Ok all,

Am here with MJK and we have discussed the possibility of a LEW only special factory visit incorporating track test drives. I need to know GENUINELY who is going to be up for it.

I also need to know who can bring their own cars for a photo opportunity and also how many of our overseas members would be interested. I'm thinking there would be no cost other than getting here, maybe staying overnight and coming out on a piss up with me and the old man!

Dad thinks it's a great idea but needs to go back to his people with a firm number in mind.
