It's been so long since I've seen an S4 up close and plastic that I'd forgotten just how much presence they have. Following Robin's car away; it's quite an imposing sight.

Awesome fun way to spend a few hours, despite the weather.

Next time, with sunshine and sarnies 🌞

Am sure there are a few more Hereford and Worcester Lotuses that in theory could come out to play in time. There's an Azure blue Esprit S4s in Ross, then there's @PAUL GURNEY's GT3, @Rob Warren's X180. @Barrykearley, you mentioned an S1 that was going to come out but was rain adverse? Anyone know of any others?

A cross county visit to Caffeine and Machine in Warwickshire for a future meet was touted and does sound fun :)

I know of a few others @RobinB5 - sadly the S1 started and was returned to the barn when it started raining. 
 

I’m sure we can get the numbers up a bit in future. There’s a white S4 in the Bonhams sale - otherwise i could have tempted him out. There’s an Elise owner and an Elan owner local to me as well.

Yes, MAC members here.  We usually get up there 2 or 3 times a year. We're planning to go up to the next Breakfast Club on Sunday 30th May.

We did the Westfield race series in 1992 (!) - we built 2 off  SE's with live axles , raced and drove home from the circuits , then did hillclimbs . Red top Vauxhall - good engines but more power these days .

Very similar to ours - started with a 1700 xflow  , built them in 1990 SE narrow body . Then changed to the C20 engine , 200bhp , 526kg .

So I wasn't gonna go to Goodwood FOS. Bit far and all just to see the Emira whizz past, but then Lotus announced that they are this year's central theme/advertiser/interactive thingy wotsit, and I decided that I can't not do this year if Lotus are doing many things. I can always not go next year!

So, I'm ticketed for the 8th and I've booked myself into the West supercar park 😁.

Am excited.

Took the car to Silverstone and back today, which turned into a great fun drive. Every kind of road (and road user) and just sublime. Man, I love my car!

This coming Wednesday morning (2nd Jun), I'm going to head over to Caffeine and Machine and check it out. I think the cross-country journey could be pretty awesome.

Which brings me to - next meet, and I'm thinking something like w/e of 24/25 Jul ??? Local, like Coco's, or a drive to something like C&M (or similar). It's the weekend after the GB GP.

What do we think?

So, let's go firm on Sunday 25th Jul, for 1000hrs. Recommend that we meet again at Coco's Cafe (which will be open this time), and maybe over a brew, chat through options for a run out.

Pass the word. Be nice to chat in not terrible rain (hopefully) and with a buttie and a brew.
