I would like to confirm that Gert (Exploded) and I will be there with the SE High Wing and we also booked the Hotel.

Bibs, Stick me back on with the Sport 350. I've booked a holiday from 2nd to 14th August to accommodate. Only going to be able to make it one of the days though I'm afraid as I have a life outside L

Change of plans for me. I've spoken to the organisers and the Essex will now be staying both days on our stand.

I've just uploaded a photo of Brian's presentation on that thread

 

Here are a couple of the timeline from the Sunday, better weather and no RR  Disco to ruin the photos

Looks like a great lineup!

 

Well done Bibs for not letting up on it.

 

Kudos to all those that either got their cars there or offered their car for the display anyway. Must have been an awesome display.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

It was a wonderful sight and thanks to two very generous owners I got to sit in two of the stars of the show, Barrie's magnificent Essex Turbo and Ken's Sport 300. Both are the stuff of Lotus legend. If you're reading this Barrie, thanks again.

 

It was a huge thrill to follow Scott in the Sport 300 back around the M25. I have some video to show for it but in terms of road presence Lotus have yet to match the Sport 300. A glorious and incredibly rare sight on the roads. A 50mph limit section of the dreary M25 has never been so exciting!

 

Well done to all involved in the timeline it was one of the highlights of the festival.

Just to echo the above comments. .it was a great privilege to have been a part of the timeline and great to meet the owners. Good effort for weekend by all. And im so glad Brian Angus' favorite esprit colour is yellow ;)

I wish I'd read the sheet of paper I was handed at the gate! Would've loved to have taken the Purple Nasty around the track :( They looked magnificent guys. Every single one. Am I right in thinking that 2 out of 3 show and shine awards for the mid-era category were won by an Esprit?

Yes, Chris Cole's 1986 very shiny red Turbo was 1st and my Essex came 3rd. 

 

Great weekend, shame about the weather on Saturday but Sunday turned out really well. 

 

Thanks Bibs for pulling it all together. For me the Brian Angus Esprit time line was the highlight of the Festival although it was great to catch up and put faces to so many names.

Yep, my car won but  I was a little supprised (but only a little!) as it was up against Bazz's Essex and the car that came 2nd, think it was an eclat or Excel?? Had a really interesting history, being used as a run around for the likes of James Hunt and others at Grand Prix events, but did look a bit odd with it's Essex livery. 

Do I still owe you the £3.00 Bibs?

Congratulations on the awards guys, great to see 2 esprits in the top 3!

 

I wish to thank Bibs for organising the timeline. It was pretty special to get all these cars in one place and lined up (excluding any Interloping Land Rovers!) Shame it was so hard to get any decent photos! ... if you have them please post them!

A brief video of Ken's Sport 300 brightening up a dreary trudge back down the M25 after Brands last Sunday.

 

I'm quite sure that a few of these would improve attention levels on motorways, hopefully the government will agree and look into it right away  :thumbup:

The video had an extra 3,000 views overnight, this explains why!
