Yes, an excellent day - can't wait till the next one. In a way I'm glad that my Esprit was poorly as I've always wanted to go on track in an Excel, so it was the perfect opportunity. It certainly isn'

count me in... some great locations in and around West London you know......

Hi chaps.   I would like to come along with my 85 Turbo. Its a busy time for me at the moment but hopefully will be able to make it.   Buddsy

I really hope we can do better than that. But if there isn't enough interest it won't happen simple as that. I will be press ganging owners at the weekend and happy to broaden it to a Giugiaro Turbo meet but wanted to see how many dry sumps that were willing to show up first.

That would be a shame.  i am only about 25 Miles from the factory so i will probably drive up anyway just for a look.

I shall be going regardless Phil, so even if it's just four of us it would be fine by me!

 

For those new to the thread we are planning a Giugiaro Turbo get together at Hethel on 3rd October. There will be an opportunity to lap the test track with Magnitude track days.

Please register your interest here and we can get an idea of numbers. Hopefully we can get a decent turn out.

I may be able to make this, may be moving house that weekend ( sole reason is to get a garage for the car! the wife will tell you different though!)

 

I may be able to to tie this in with getting the head lining sorted up at Mr Fulchers 

Do you expect me to talk........ No Mr Bond I expect you to die!

Annoyingly (and somewhat embarassingly) it's looking unlikely that I'll be able to make the Hethel day now. I need to get something checked out on my car, hopefully minor but I'd rather not risk another long journey until it has been given the all clear. The issue is really that Gerald has a long queue, Sportomotive are moving to Bounemouth, the best Paul Matty can do is end of Sept, Lotus Motorsport (which would have been perfect) are booked through to November. I've got a day pencilled at Paul Matty for 28th Sept but if it's a bigger job Oct 3rd is looking unlikely.

Obviously fingers crossed for a quick fix and all will be well. But that's the latest anyway.

Just to let you all know.

Current state of play with my car is its still in bits but progressing.  Currently I can not guarantee being ready for the 3rd.  I am still hoping very much to get there but not sure at the moment.

I won't know for sure until next week if my car will be ready in time unfortunately, which is highly embarassing given this was my idea, but it's very unlikely that it will be.

I've had to wait this long to find anyone available to have a look at it.

I reluctantly vote for postponing until next year also. Perhaps we could arrange a G Turbo line-up at next year's TLF event?

I really wanted to do this as the car is running really well and would love meet everyone as i have only managed to make the gathering at Mercedes Benz so far. Life has transpired agianst me and as predicted I am moving on the 1st October. I will look out for any other meets for G cars. Could we orgainse a track day some where just for G serise cars in the spring?

Afternoon folks, sorry to hear some of you are experiencing issues with your Esprit, It looks to be a good turn out for the last event of the season with a variety of 30 cars booked online for the track event. If you haven't booked up for the track event and you still want to come you do need to book online to secure your place. If you are just coming along for the meet you also need to book online under the Classic and retro meet section of the site. For those of you that have booked we look forward to welcoming you to Hethel on the 3rd!
