LEC end of Covid Knees up With Barrie Wills

Postby clemo » Tue 26.05.2020, 19:16

It seems like only this time last year we were all having a great time at Castle Combe (oh we were). Hopefully many of you will remember the Strawford centre talk hosted by Mike Kimberly and Barrie Wills . Barrie "bombshell" wills is a stickler for detail and giving away the odd trade secret.Who knew about the Reliant and Lotus tie up ? or that some of the M100's on the PDI line were taken home by top management. Yes your Elan could have been driven by Mike Kimberly and you didn't even know it ( apart from Merlot )
As most of this years events have been cancelled down and we don't really have much to look forward to. If you would like , And subject to dates and being given the all clear. We have pencilled in a night with Barrie. He has a book about his stint with John Delorean out at the moment (He doesn't mention it much!) with a short section about our M100. If we could support him on this is will give us back an evening of entertainment ten fold. I joke that it is to be held at Barrie's local boozer. Though subject to numbers and overnight accommodation it could be anyone centrally located's boozer and maybe a nice run out in the cars during the day or the day after

Venue TBC
Date TBC

Just putting out here now to gauge numbers and give us something to look forward too. Hope we all get to see each other soon.

I know he had a replacement, but I hadn't realised it was Covid Knee.

Could be fun to come but it would depend on a lot of things (especially the date and location, and of course whether I could come freely from France or whether I would be stuck in quarantine ^^')

Hi Folks

I am new to the Elan Central "world" having purchased a 1990 Elan in August last year. It is an early version with "opera glass" headlights. I would be interested in the end of Covid Knees up subject to date and location. Keep safe!
