Leave early, not turn up?


Recommended Posts

Shame on you unless you had an excellent reason (which I know is the case for many, don't panic!)

Well you missed out on one of these; a souvenir pamphlet and personalised certificate. The pamphlet has details on damper/spring prices and literally thousands of parts with 10-80% off the RRP!!!

I've got loads here and will bring them to Stoneleigh or pop them in the post. Let me know. It was very nice of Lotus to go to the time, effort and expense for you all, I'd not want to see them all go to waste :(

On a more serious note, people who put their name down and didn't turn up without letting someone know, that's bad form. People couldn't come as the list was full and I'll be making a decision over the next few days on how to react to this.

Hi Bibs,

Yeah I was one of them :( - had to leave early for an evening appointment. Absolutely great day though, all those Esprits are breath taking and the factory very interesting. My thanks to you all and Lotus.

It would be great if you could post one on to me, it looks interesting.

Thanks

Gav

Hi Bibs,

No we both stayed till the end it was such an experience dident want to leave the factory in case we missed something. :(:(

The certificates just for the member or guest as well? I picked mine up (and did not look to see if there was one for Maria) sh1t i might not be getting a Europa after all.

When I left the factory quite late on there appeared to be quite a few certificates left over. Im sure that with all the effort Bibs has put in it would be a big help for those that missed their certificates and want them before stoneleigh, if they sent Bibs a stamped A4 self addressed envelope so he can just return your certificate directly wih the minimum of effort on his part.

Wimped out after the last parade lap, sorry. Missus was feeling poorly, she has just been diagnosed with multiple food intolerances, too late to alert the hotel to any dietary requirements, so she basically starved for 2 days! Please let us know an address to send SAE.

In the garage no-one can hear you scream

AHHH!! I know that feeling!

As a 20+ year lactose intolerant (very mild) and a 15 odd year Vegan, if I can offer any help, advice or solace ( :) ) just give me a shout :)

<Now... how many people will notice the really obvious joke I've left open there?!

"When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked him to forgive me."

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

If you could let me know where to send a SAE I would be most grateful. My nephew and I had to depart at 4.45 since I had promised to his Mum to get my him home by 8pm since he hadn't done his RE homework (no..honestly) !

Thanks Bibs, I know youl understand!

Excuse #6

I had put my name forward for the charity run on Sunday but decided against trying to make it down for 2.00pm on the Sunday as my car was getting an exhaust fitted on the Saturday and I still had bits and pieces to do late on Saturday night.

As it turns out I had problems with the car on my journey down with oil loss so I wouldn't have taken part in any case.

Hi Bibs - Yes sorry but I was one that left immediately after finishing the circuit laps. Bloody rude I know but I had a plane to catch. I'll look into the Stoneleigh meet or send a SAE.

Thanks fella!

:o

btw - I did pm about a week earlier to inform you the Mrs was going to miss it but didn't get a reply. Hope I don't qualify for an ass whipping or anything equally unpleasant.
