Nmeg's July Jaunt


Backmarker

Recommended Posts

Lotus dealership Nick Whale, has kindly agreed to open its doors for NMEG on a Sunday and in addition to showing us around their excellent facilities, will provide us with refreshments all "on the house".

The day will take place on Sunday 22 July and the plan at the moment is to meet at Hilton Park at 9.30am (shall I call you Dodgy about 8.30am?). After a chat and perhaps a bacon buttie, we'll leave Hilton Park at 10.00am and make our way on to the M5 to pick up members from Frankley Services. Then its a quick blast to the Dealership which is on the A38 in Bromsgrove.

We're intending to arrive by 10.30am and hopefully we'll be there till lunch.

Afterwards the journey home might be via Kidderminster/Bridgnorth and Telford, but this will be firmed up nearer the time.

To help Nick Whale plan their catering budget (2 packets of crisps or 3?) we need to have an idea of numbers. Please add your name to this thread if you intend joining us. Remember, you don't have to be a "member" of NMEG to come along and play. It helps if you drive an Esprit though. Please don't just turn up on the day and think you'll steal my butty.........a smack in the gob often offends.

This is the first time that Nick Whale has opened its doors on a Sunday and the first time it's invited NMEG so lets make the most of the opportunity.

Graham.

Graham will you have an Esprit on the road by July?

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Hi Nick :lol:

Dave,

How's it going. I hope the Lotties in fine form. Look forward to seeing you and all at Supercar Sunday.

its not looking so hot, supercar is more than likely a no-no. need to get a few things sorted on the car, having a good check of it tomorrow (forcast nice weather)

i was getting a little worried on the way home from simons house/combe on sunday, it was running very very rough and missing like crazy if i tried to put any load on the engine, hoping just damp (rain all the way home)

had a go at the engine, reset the timing (it had moved :) ) took the car out for a spin.

the missfire has gone , so it must have been damp,

and the clutch never slipped once - no matter what i did ?!

i really aught to get the car tuned properly, just dont know of anyone that can do old school tuning anymore :)

still got to get the brakes sorted, only not at work for a week ,so cant get the grinding done :)

Well done Dave.

Perhaps LEF Engineering could do the tuning
