The Manor House Hotel in Castle Combe. The four of us, plus better halves, have been going to Castle Combe each year for 20 years but this was the first time we'd stayed at the Manor.

One of my fondest memories is the grin on your face as we tore down the A14 together at huge speeds after the factory day back in 2006!

Ah the glory days Bibs!.... That was fun indeed, just a shame the car wasn't running right, never really did! I had it mapped by someone in Scotland who I think now didn't really know what they were doing, in hindsight I should have sent the car down to Steve Greenald in Kent for mapping.. If I had I think I'd still own it :) Only sold as I couldn't afford to fix her after she burnt the top of a cylinder liner ( Ran Lean ) and I got divorced... I'll be back behind the wheel of a Lotus again soon ;)

Well Mark,

 

actually the car (only the chassis and engine ) are going to Steve Greenald this year to be mapped.

He already made a start up mapping for me so i can test some things before going there.

Seeing these pics.....

Reality is that it is a lot of work to get the car to its former glory.

I found some photos of my first Esprit and scanned them.

Roz,

that Esprit Turbo looks nice! Shame you sold.

 

Thanks Mark, I thought she was lovely as well. After a year or so I traded her in for a red turbo and for some reason I didn't take any pictures of that one. Even though the red one was a better car technically I didn't form the attachment I did with my white one.

Short video of my S3 on her first time out of the garage after her rebuild, still a bit of tuning required on the carbs but man does it sound good to hear her going again for the first time in almost two years.

So wish I had taken it to Steve, I think i'd still have it if I had... It was just the distance and the promise (false promise) of someone more local to complete the car when I lost my garage space and was pretty shy of time to complete that made me choose the silly local option :(  I'm glad you're doing it all right now! :)
