Been looking around for insurance now I'm joining the Lotus fraternity and had an excellent quote from Matt at Classicline. 

Seems like an excellent quote although limited mileage 5k with option to extend to 7.5k if required. Any advice on alternatives or am I good with what I've found? 

Thanks in advance

Yes that appears to be right.  It's disappointing that AIB don't have insurers on their books who are willing to cover trackdays.

I got a reasonable quote form Classcline.  I then went to Competition Car Insurance, filled in a quote form, and received a quote that was 2.5 times what Classicline had quoted.  I found that odd, as there are plenty of people on here who seem to use CCI - they were just nowhere near for me and wouldn't have thought I'm a bad risk - lots of NCB, clean licence and fast approaching 50 years old.

Me too, do you have any recommendations for track cover?

it`s the "fast approaching" that insurers don`t like

What about the faster disappearing into the distance?....

I'm up for renewal soon and although I'm currently with AIB, I probably won't be going back to them. PM if you want to know why not.

I also require trackday cover so my list of companies to call is: CCI, Henderson Taylor, Classicline, A Plan and REIS.

I used to be with Haggerty Insurance who included track cover, they were very good people but just got greedy when it was time to renew! They were about £100 more than AIB but did include track cover, were not willing to "discuss" the price, would rather loose a customer.

Classicline seemed great, will see what happens when I take up the quote in the next few weeks. Although I hope I never need them ?

Just called them, most impressed with the quote, actually cheaper than AIB and includes track cover! crikey<_<

Maybe check the policy wording, you may not be insured for that one.

Aib told me it was impossible to get agreed value insurance on my elise, and tried to tell me that a policy requiring an mot was suitable for my project car. Not impressed.

Dropped AIB, insured Lotus with Classic Line yesterday, track days included in policyB-) Guess that until AIB realise what is important to people who own "sports cars" then they will continue to loose customers.

Dealt with Classicline yesterday re the VX220 and confirmed track cover - they were very efficient.

Renewal from them for the Evora came in today - happy with the price and terms so will likely just renew. They do seem to be on the ball at the moment.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!
