As above, the day that Gav @TheKevlarKidorganised for the Exiges guys a few years ago was at Hethel. Went really well, he also got Martin Donnelly along as the instructor, sandwich lunch was provided and LoT membership for a year included.  

If you remember, I had also organised a factory tour the day before the trackday for anyone wanting to make more of a meal of it.

I forgot LoT provided lunch for us and gave us all a years membership aswell... good old Golding!!

For the record, Hethel is a bit crap...as is Blyton. 

Croft or Donington ftw. 

I’ll second that plus Anglesey👍

Plus Oulton Park.

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!

Thanks for the input guys. All the tracks mentioned are a possibility. We won't be able to do a GP circuit as they're just too expensive but one of the national / ex airfield tracks is possible. 

All suggestions will be put into the melting pot with LoT who we're in conversation with.

Straight off the bat they've said only 20 cars is impossible.. one of the main things about this event is that it should be accessible to all so keeping the cost down to a minimum is important.

Saying all that.. if spending a little more gets us a lot more then we're not going to compromise too much! 😉

Unsure how this concept of a TLF track day is progressing... what I can say is that the day at Combe by Opentrack was stellar for the price of £99!

Yes there where queues but attendees where warned this would be the case given the price point. 12 cars on track and lots of space to enjoy the circuit.

No knobs, no trouble, and my car didn’t get keyed. My advise ... just get out and drive :)

If anyone is free this weekend, there is a couple of spaces just freed up at Anglesey...
I'll be there with the Elise and I think the majority of cars on circuit are VX220 (It's the VX220 National) but also a good smattering of other "like minded" cars and drivers.

Update. If this is going to happen preparations need to commence and unfortunately I’m not going to be able to continue as I’m now Lotusless 🙁 

My sincere apologies for starting something I can’t finish, not my original plan. Hope you agree its an idea worth moving forwards and better executed by a member who’s a current owner! 

Ill start another thread explaining why I’m now Lotusless and my annoying OEM dilemma. 

If there’s anyone on here who’s interested in helping taking this forwards with @Bibs support,  please PM me so I can bring you up to speed / hand over some contacts.

Some headway has been made for 2019.

Cheers👍🏼😉
