Had a great day catching up with everyone, old/new and potential members. A special mention for " Trophy Trev's " bar trip forced out of him by Alan Kathryn and myself for our support during the day :-D :lol:

:lol:

Kathryn has captured the LEC paddock very well....but what surprised me this time were the number of M100s scattered around elsewhere on site rather than with LEC.

Several next to us in the North Kent Group. Several on the other side of the lavies in the East Anglia Lotus Club. Several in the general Lotus parking area of which these are just two

...and even one down in the Paddock belonging to one of Mike Taylor's (Lotusbits) mechanics.

M100 GBM belongs to Geoff Morgan's wife - he of the two Europas with GBM plates who is always at Castle Coombe. They are Club Lotus local Herts organisers as well as other clubs such as LDC and one of the historics.

Good to see you yesterday mate, as well as the many others from here and the other clubs.

I stayed for the parade laps. Bibs led out in his new Evora behind the pace car, I was just in front of him a couple of cars from the back!

I did offer to lend him my toolkit, but the judges obviously didn't realise the car wasn't complete! :lol:

Seriously though, thanks for the drink and organising the tickets Trevor. :cheers:

I counted 30 M100s altogether. :D
I would have stayed for the parade lap but it was a bit of a wait and also I'm too scared after the one I did at Castle Combe was too fast!!

I did say to Mr look what I have won if he had asked you and your wife if you both wanted a drink too and he said he had and you both said no, what more can I say apart from tight arse but that is what fame can do to someone :D :D

Leg pulling aside, his car was very well prepared, nearly as good as the other M100's
