Anyone know if we broke the record for the most Lotus parked on the M25?

So close......  but no show for me ......   Yes that was me surrounded by the boys in blue on the A11...     Alas as some of you may know it was my sixtieth birthday yesterday and i still have all my teeth,  which is more than i can say about my gearbox today.  crunch bang grind..  was the noise it made, which is probably the same noises some of you are you going to do tonight :animier: 

All have a great time sorry i missed the fun..

That for me,  was the best all-round Lotus meet I've been to! Weather was perfect too. I was able to chat briefly to Bob Dance, and he said the  purest F1 race car in the line of beauties (for him) was the 32B. No extras, no wings etc.

Nice to see you again Bibs, and your efforts as always, are appreciated.

Thanks Bibs and all at Lotus. An excellent day and obviously a lot of effort (and expense!) went into this.  Fantastic!

Fantastic day.

Great to meet people and put names to faces. Met Neil Turner of customer service game, what a thoroughly nice guy, clearly cares about Lotus and customers.

Looking forward to next year!!

Would love to see the drone pics too!

Hi Dave, I was sorry to see you on the side of the road. If I'm honest I was pleased you had just broken down....the boys in blue made me fear some off roading had occured - especially given the large Silverstone tribe had left Newmarket minutes before. Hope all is well.

Bibs, you are a star....thank you for the invite and I also appriciate all the effort you and your team put in. Well worth 8 hours in the car today (well it is a lotus so worth it anyhow). Also, thanks for showing me how the alarm works. Im actually deaf in one ear at the moment and was subconsciously laughing at someone's car alarm going off - didn't actually realise it was mine while I was sat in it. All together now....you plonka David!

Apologies I was last on the stand so couldn't get to say hi to everyone but love this forum. 

Travel safe everyone!

Yes certainly looked and sounded like everyone stuck to that😂

Well I thought if Tony Shute can light up his tyres off the line then that’s permission to get your foot down 🤣

Thanks Bibs.  Excellent day.  So worth the 500 mile round trip in the 211. Thanks for arranging the weather too.

Didn't make it along today, but watched some of the live stream and looked like an excellent event.

Know we've had our differences in the past Bibs, but hopefully all water under the bridge these days, and congratulations to yourself and Lotus for the work in putting it all together, and thanks for sending through the the SELOC tickets. 👍

It really was a great day out.

I think the big screens link to live feed with @Guy Munday interveiwing people and pressenting what was going on on track worked so well and helped make the day a great sucsess.

Im not really into the cycles I have to say but enjoyed them on the track. Classic team was the highlight for me for the sound alone! That said the Sunbeams were very close and more epic than I would have beleived.

The lap record I have to say made me very nervous...old cars dont like slow moving traffic and my brakes are not as sharp as the Exige I was following so I have to admit I did duck out after 2 laps.

Well done @Bibs was an event to remeber.

Geely looked to have spend a pretty penny on the do. All good signs for the future.

Lastly big thanks tomother nature who really pulled a glorious day out of the bag for late september.

Sorry to hear that, I did wave back when I saw you parked there, but it was a bit last minute!
