A good plan from France ...

Postby Pascal » Mon 12.12.2016, 21:38

Hello,
Sylvie and myself we Wonder about a good week-end opportunity in UK with some lotus friends, but we are lazy and have old french bones, so Donington seems to be too far for us.
What about an interesting event or meeting somewhere in the circle Southampton- Reading- Colchester ?
Any idea ... let us know (we come through Dover , you know the way) .

Have a great december and more,
Pascal & Sylvie
:cheers: :burnout:

Bonjour Pascal

We'd love to see you in Wiltshire, but that's a bit down the M4 from your 'circle'. We have quite a few members in this area, and are getting a regular meet off the ground. We also have a Club Lotus day at our local racing circuit in late May.

Alternatively, there's a regular meet in Alton (south west of London near M3), where I'm sure you would be very welcome.

Whatever you decide, it would be great to see you. Bon voyage et bonnes vacances!
Jonathan

I would recommend the Brooklands Lotus meet. Its just held outside the Museum https://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/ so would recommend allowing half a day or ideally a day also at the museum also which I think is the best in the country.

You could stay 1 or 2 or even 3 nights here http://www.brooklandshotelsurrey.com/. Journey time from the tunnel about 1.5 hours

In case Sylvie gets bored suggest a day at Hampton Court which is only 20 minutes away http://www.hrp.org.uk/hampton-court-palace/ perhaps also Kew Gardens http://www.kew.org/ or it is very easy from Brooklands to get a train to Central London -40 mins journey time.
