Tickets now sold out apparently, but if we’re getting an allocation hopefully no need to worry.
Thanks for organising it for us Trevor! :clap:

Be aware that as at 6pm Friday 10th Aug all 7000 tickets were sold out.

However I ASSUME that this includes the 20 tickets allocated to each club. If so, then LEC still has 8 tickets available (20 less 17 listed plus 5 taken direct).

Moderator/block ticket recipient (Trevor?) please correct me if I'm wrong :poke:

I also asked on TLF John. I imagine that does include our allocation. (At least I hope so!)

Having now arrived in deepest darkest Cornwall, I now have internet access again!

I'm glad that Trevor has grabbed hold of the mantle on behalf of LEC, cos I have only just got an email from Bibs, which I haven't replied to..... I'm happy for you to carry on and thus avoid any duplication of efforts.

I won't be trying to grab a ticket from elsewhere, so would appreciate one when you get them Trev. No need to post it out to me, as I shall be there at whatever time I get through the traffic on the day (probably late afternoon) and can meet up wherever/whenever is appropriate.

As it appears that 'accomodation' will be provided on site, we shouldn't need the gazebo (John O :poke: ), but I shall bring a couple of chairs, table, kettle and teabags etc etc, John, I assume that you are able to fit the banner in the capacious loadspace of the Evora, so at least we will have some identity on our patch - even if you can't park your own car on it!!!!!
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

go on - click this link - you know you want to!

Dave, good to see you back on-line. Happy to take control of tickets, hopefully Bibs got my email response and tickets will be on there way, albeit eventually.

But, at least, we've got our request for allocation in and we get a allocated space with a marquee (not a gazeebo!). I will pm you my mobile details.

Well, if it's cr@p, I'll blame you (just booked it for the 2 nigbut be hts).

It looks good on the internet - most importantly, it's well located for what we need (walkable to Dunston Hall if required) - and better than Dunstons 'best' prices.....

..... that said, if Bibs comes in with a 'can't be beaten' price, I have the option to cancel up to a couple of days before arrival - what's not to like????


Just checked there is one room left for the 29th via booking.com best be quick if you want it.

Trev,
I was just anxious that we (LEC) get sufficient for our requirements, as I knew that they would be oversubscribed (but I also knew that Bibs would see us right).

It is apparent from the list (and what I have established from the TLF posts) that a few of 'our' number will be bringing another from their large collections of Loti, and thus although we have many on the list, we are nowhere near to the 20 cars we are 'allowed'.....

…..that said, I'm sure there will be others who will wish to attend, and nearer to the time a decision can be made as to which cars are on the LEC stand (or even if anyone would rather not due to timings of arrival etc). It is far to early to be organised - it may be that Lotus would expect 'display' cars to be there early and leave late, so that may have an impact of who wants to do what...……… we'll see in due course.

Trevor,
Well done for being the LEC contact. The only thing I would say is for gawds sake don’t release any of our allocation back to Bibs. They will be used!

I have no idea where I’m staying, or even if I’ll be able to finish work early on the Friday. I’m not too worried about being right by the event, just a bit closer than home!

Nice one Alan e. I have just booked that single room for the Saturday to Sunday with free cancellation .
So if a Friday night pops up then I'm there for the duration .
