The Best place in hampshire to set up an Esprit S1

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I would love your opinions please.  I am still a little unhappy with our Lotus Esprit S1 as when it is hot it tends to cut out at idle and not want to re-start.  It could be carbs, timing or something else.  I don't think my expertise or equipment is going to resolve it without a lot of chasing my tail.

I am thinking of taking it somewhere to get it checked out and set up properly, possibly on a rolling road, but hopefully quite close to Andover so I don't breakdown on the way.  I have come across Ray West at Thruxton who says no problem they can sort it and I wondered if anyone had any experience of them, knew anything about them or could even recommend someone.

 

Thanks for your input, I look forward to hearing your everyones thoughts.

 

Alec

Good to know. I wouldn't know where to start in Hampshire but Bell and Colvill aren't too far away.

A common cause of cutting out on the S1 is apparently the ignition switch.

Just another quiet vote for Geoff at esprit engineering. He's honest, knowledgable and always willing to help.
