Ah good memories of that event too, from the stormtroopers in Great Yarmouth, to driving the new Europa’s at the factory :thumbsup: also remember I was driving a lovely green GT3 Esprit now owned by @PAUL GURNEY I believe, think that was the start of my motorsport green fixation although not quite the same it’s still stunning to behold :)

Just don’t mention the queue getting out of the car park   :lol:

Indeed it is Dan’s old car, the one Alex re sprayed part of the bumper while Dan and I waited, I think that was when Dan was still at Burnt House farm....that was a long time ago!

I'm at Lotus on Friday to discuss the finer points and will have a nice big update with many more details after that. 

By the sounds of the responses on here alone its going to be mental busy. Hopefully someone at the Factory will remember the, err "difficulties" with access 10 years ago when someone thought it adequate for 1000s of cars all arriving within a 2 hour window to enter the site by turning 90 degrees through a 3m wide hole in the fence!

Could you ask them to consider letting everyone use the main gates this time, or just go onto the track straight off the main road by the Engineering Centre?? Its been a while and I'm sure the site has changed a fair bit, but standing queues on the A11 shouldnt happen again

Totally agree. PLEASE make sure this happens. My poor old Elan S4 seriously overheated that day, but I doubt if the Evora will this time. Just don't want to queue forever to get in.

I could help Friday afternoon to prepare (depending on flight times in to Norwich) and would be happy to help out on the day as I won't have my car with me. Just need to get somewhere to stay and transport to the event (local taxi's do operate i guess in the wilds of Norfolk?)

This picture just so tells me that I need a S3 Esprit HC turbo or NA in my life or whatever......

Last time mate we convoyed there after all meeting up at Dunston Hall first thing. Think it wound up circa 16:00, though many of us went back to Dunston and had a few drinkies......again.....
