Hi Bibs, from another Elise S1 and Impreza owner...no longer a WRX I'm afraid, just a RX...I also originated from Kent...many many years ago!

Thanks for the thumbs up, hope you're able to make it this year

Hi Captain Slow, it's great to hear the Lotus Car Club of Sweden will be joining us...that's an epic road trip you have planned, don't you sleep at all during the Summer months ;-)

 

No, but we hibernate from October to April :-)

Yes Bibs it's about time you came along and saw what you've been missing these last four years ☺  

I will even buy you a pint at the Warm Up!

 

Fantastic news that we have the Swedish Lotus Mafia along too ???????????

That's one of the organisers car, it is still being restored, not sure it will be completed in time for this year's LitP. And no, funny as it would've been, they didn't drive it there, it had to be trailered ;-)

So far we have 53 cars booked on the runs.  Looking good with Esprits, Elans (early and M100s),  Europas (SE),  an Excel,  some Eclats,  a 340R,  two or three exige roadsters, an Evora or two as well as plenty of Elises and Exiges.

Get over to mloc and get booked on!  You know you want to!

73 cars booked on the runs already!

Please don't forget if you want to take part in the runs and the procession in to Chatsworth this must be booked in advance via the mloc online store  (midlandslotus.co.uk).  

What are you waiting for?!?

Nice photos Rich.  I love the second one showing the procession in to Chatsworth.  I think that car at the front might be mine  ?

What did it look like from a spectators perspective as the procession came in?  Was it good?

It's a great day...

Part of the fun of owning a Lotus is the driving experience :devil::ph34r:B-):wub:...  So first it was great being part of the run, people giving us a wave and taking photos of us on route.

THEN all of us coming together and driving into Chatsworth...  :)B-):wub: the cars all looking great, every colour and most of the models. It was a truly WOW moment.

Another part of the fun of owning a Lotus is talking to other owners...

Four years I have been trying to win that bloody raffle and nothing,  rien,  nada!

We only have about 20 prizes every time!

 

Thank you for that lovely post Rich,  I am really pleased you enjoyed the day.  It is the driving part that makes this event different to other events - the runs on great roads and the procession in to Chatsworth is unique I think.  The other aspect we work hard on is making it a good social event, where people talk to each other and make new friends.  It is great to hear you appreciated both.

We at MLOC are very happy to announce that Central Lotus will be sponsoring this year's LitP event! 

Andy and Kevin at Central Lotus are huge Lotus enthusiasts and will be bringing along an Evora 400, an Exige 350 and an Elise Cup.  Look out for them on the runs.

More LitP news:

Central Lotus will be taking part in the early morning runs with an Evora 400 and an Exige S.  I wonder who the lucky person will be that gets to follow the 400 around Derbyshire's finest roads?  That noise....that rear end....

The South West Wales Lotus Club are bringing 8 cars and making a weekend of it.  They have their hotel booked and will be attending the Saturday night Warm Up too - that's the way to do it!  Welcome aboard chaps! 

Paul Shipley of PJS Classic and Race Cars (Burton on Trent) has kindly agreed to provide the trophies for the Car of The Day competition and will also be bringing his full - house  Elan 26R along.   If we are lucky we may even see it on one of the runs - look for the man with earplugs!

Numbers booked and paid for the event stand at 104 (94 on the runs and attending Chatsworth,  10 Chatsworth only).

If you fancy it head over to midlandslotus.co.uk to book - the earlier the better to ease the burden on the organisers (me, principally!) please  :-)

 

Thank you

 

Dean
