Great. This is beginning to gather momentum and starting to feel like Castle Donington in the early days

Its great for the future of LEC because everyone loved the annual meet up, curry, beers, convoy, chinwag, putting faces to names etc.... of the old days :wink: It forged friendships and kinship that is still going strong 12 or 13 years later

If we have 21 cars present we should be able to make quite an impact.

Does anyone have numbers for the organisers of the event.
Was it in last months Club Lotus Magazine ?

Have sent an email and will phone Jane tomorrow .
Hoping we can get a roped off area like we used to do at Donington and Stoneleigh.

Would be good if we make Castle Combe the kick start to our M100 season.

Spare pants not needed, you stayed well within the capabilities of the Elan - I didn't even hear the tyres squeak!

I think it was The Esses. I was going straight on (down the escape route ?) when you said, quite calmly, "we need to be heading right here Mark" :burnout:

PS know it was only a parade lap but there seemed to be no speed restrictions. And El Geoffos spun his car the previous year on the parade lap but the less said about that the better :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

If you can't spin it on the parade lap you're not trying hard enough. :burnout: At least I stayed on the track unlike the Esprit and Elise in front of me.

Do you need to be a member of the Lotus Club to attend? All application forms seem to be in the monthly mag.
Also what’s the cost? I’d just be turning up for the Saturday, (no camping as it’s just down the road).

That's what I've done for the last 10+ years - no membership, no cost.

As Geoff says it's free to attend and membership not required: you only have to pay if you want to take your car onto the track. And that is (probably) restricted to members only as numbers are limited.

I'll make sure to bring a beer mat and pencil then - so whatever items you feel you need can be expertly designed while-you-wait :D

He's just coming out for a beer and a catch up. Though if we can find a spare Tub for him at some point then that would be helpful.
