Well you know I am....and I expect Ian will....and maybe even Peter....and DocTim often shows....and...

It looks like the rain isn't going to come till 7pm which will be great. But still keeping my fingers crossed as you can never trust the weather ?

I've still got a stack of Lotus merch here if anyone wants some bought down. Happy to honour the 20% off offer too, just let me know what you'd like by 10am tomorrow when I'm leaving :)

Morning Bibs,

I'll have one of the grey "Lotus Graphic" T-shirts size XL and one Lotus leather keyring if you have them please?

Cheers,

Rich

Great afternoon down the open day, many thanks to James and the team along with Bibs. Great cars and people, even the weather held out.

The Lotus Elan horn tester also did a marvellous job! ?

Well from the passenger seat I can tell you that it was pretty impressive.  Refined, quick and controlled rather like the driver.  So who was that?  Last time I travelled with the Bibman in his LTT Evora IPS it was a - admittedly grin inducing - white knuckle ride.  This time we were slowed not once but a handful of times by locals not realising the full potential of the route, but did we overtake on first acquaintance?? Nope just eased back to bide our time.  So who was that imposter and what's he done with our Bibbo! 

A really great day much enjoyed.  Excellent to catch up with everyone.  Great photo Dave - your boy obviously has taste!

Many thanks to all at the Webb family mansions.

Sorry to have missed you all there, guys,

Unfortunately, my father-in-law passed away on Thursday after a brief spell in ICU at Barnstaple, so family time is currently op priority.

'Til next year....

What an enjoyable day at South West Lotus Centre open day, with my son Liam, a final 250 mile blast for Lotty before her auxiliary shaft overhaul. Big thanks to all the Webb family for making us welcome and allowing us to wander around their workshops amongst the ongoing projects. Lovely varied display of Lotus and other marques. And good to meet you @Bibs.IMG_0971.JPG

Breaks traction in 3rd now :D

Range computer now says 850 miles to a tank rather than 650 and MPG home was 70 rather than the usual 55 too!! Win/win/win :D
