New member but a long time fan.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Boyhood Lotus fan here on my third one in 3 years but first time on the forums (other than working out where the boot release was in a flat battery Evora)!

Started off with a MK3 Elise CR, then a Launch Edition Evora in which I did 30k miles in a year and now onto a V6 Exige. 

Looking forward to doing some track days this year with the new gold Team Dynamics and fresh rubber. 

I used to race Minis in the Scottish Mini Cooper Cup which was brilliant fun and plan on finding a MK1 Elise to race in 2018 so will be kicking about at a few of the Lotus Cup UK events this year as well as a host of other events that I can see on here. 

Couple of photos of my 3 (feel free to ask for more of my very amateur attempts), and a thanks to the hosts for the forum!

Welcome to TLF

your old Evora prompted some discussion recently, I recognise the plate.

ended up at auction, was rumours of it being reposed and needing a clutch etc?

I saw that, it ended up in Essex I think. Not repossessed despite it trying to bankrupt me with the amount of visits it needed to Bell and Coalville, but definitely needed a new clutch when I swapped for the V6. It went to Murray in Edinburgh who put it to auction.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
