2 days ago TLF stats showed that in the previous 12 months, there had been over 1,000,000 visits to the website from our members and visitors. After over 17 years in operation, this is a huge milestone and we thank all of you for using, enjoying and contributing to our news pages, forums and classifieds.
With visitors from every single country in the world, we have always aimed to provide Lotus owners, fans and enthusiasts all the information and resources they could need regarding Lotus and their cars and how to use and enjoy them to the max. From just a handful of Esprit owners back in 2004 we now cover the entire range of Lotus cars with the recent focus being on the Evora, V6 engined Exige and of course, more recently the all-new Lotus Emira. Small platform cars, the Elise and Exige are also covered with a significant number of the Elite/Eclat/Excel owners also using the technical areas of the forums. Our social presence has grown with over 93,000 fans on facebook and growing channels on Instagram and Youtube too.
As luck would have it, TLF Founder and CEO Andy ‘Bibs’ Betts was visiting Hethel yesterday to help with ASO media asset creation and unbeknown to us, Lotus Cars had recognised this significant milestone for TLF and Chris Hinks, Director of Aftersales presented him with a surprise award and a bottle of bubbly!
As well as you folks, without whom TLF wouldn’t see such unprecedented traffic levels, we also need to thanks our many friends at Lotus who have, over the many years, been able to help us with amazing access & transparency, member technical assistance, parts supply, event support and much more. We honestly can’t think of any other OEM that directly supports their customers so openly and offers such support to us, the owners and enthusiasts who have passion for their cars and company. This really is a great time to be a Lotus owner/customer and the future is looking incredibly bright for the company, and with that for TLF. Thanks again to the brilliant team at ASO for the award, it really means a lot to us.
Onwards and upwards, here’s to the next milestone!
