Birthday ideas


Recommended Posts

I've mentioned this to a few friends and thus far I've been met with bewilderment......... so I thought I'd seek counsel with more like minded.....errr...... mentalists......

Aaaaaanyway, my beautiful lemon yellow Lotus Esprit S2 rolled off the production line on the 4th May 1979, which makes it 40 on that date next year.

I'm keen to celebrate the occasion and think a good road trip to somewhere iconic would be fitting and wondered if you knuckleheads would be so kind as to contribute ideas....... or incur my wrath. 

Ideas thus far:

Nurburgring (done loads of times and a bit obvious...... but I do love the place)

Le Mans 24hr (I'd have preferred the classic but it's biennial, so not next year)

Trip to Hethel, maybe see if they'll let me photo my car outside the factory....... I could do this on the day in addition to a road trip

Mugello MotoGP..... want to see Rossi there before he retires so maybe roll the two together?

What say you?

Mugello MotoGP sounds interesting, I've not long got back from seeing Rossi get on the podium at Catalunya.

I'll watch this thread and pipe up next year in the unlikely event that becomes a favourite :)
