IWM Duxford Spring Car Show - Sunday 6th May 2018

LEC_SML.jpg


It's that time of year again and I'd like to extend an invitation to all our Elan friends to attend the Spring Car Show at IWM Duxford. The popularity of this show has grown year on year and last year we had 50+ Cars on show including a good showing of Elan's obviously :D .

If you can only make a morning or afternoon or even an hour or two Duxford are usually very flexible with entry and exit times unlike many other shows, last year the entry gate was open from 9.30am-2.00pm and you can leave whenever you wish.

A big bonus here is that when you've looked round all the car displays you can then view all the aircraft on show and yes they do have a Concorde as well. Often the workshops are open so you can see restorations in progress. There's a large café in the American Air Museum and if you'd like to see things from the air you can book a pleasure fight with Classic Wings on the day. There's usually a few trade stands selling car valeting products at good prices as well.

The show is being organised differently this year to avoid the queuing problems that have occurred previously as the show has become more and more popular. This year I will request 50 places in our normal pitch, we may be able to squeeze a few more in if required. Once I've submitted the pitch application form they will issue me with a promo code which I will post hear ASAP. Once we have the promo code you must go to the IWM What's on page here:

https://www.iwm.org.uk/whats-on?filters

Select Car Shows and purchase your ticket for the Spring Car Show. Once you've done this PM me and I'll confirm your place on the attendance list below (Please note: Tickets aren't available yet, but please list your name and car below if you intend to come along). If you are already a member of TLF then you can post your interest here:

https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/t ... ent-772003

Any entries posted here will be copied over to the main TLF list, so don't worry if you're not a member of TLF.

Further details are in the PDF below:

Ticket_Info.pdf



Keep an eye on this thread and as soon as tickets become available I'll let you all know. Let me know if you have any questions.

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
Martyn :D

I plan to be there as usual Martyn. If the weather doesn't improve I'll still have the hardtop on (again) AND snow tyres.. :shock:

Thanks. I'll catch up with TLF guys when they start evening meets again ... don't eat breakfast, so can't be bothered about the Sunday Breakfast meets.

Well finally tickets are available :D

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT !

1) Visit the Events Page Here:

https://www.maximweb.net/imperialwarmus ... gLU__D_BwE

2) Click on IWM Duxford Car Show 2018

3) Click Next and then Enter Promo Code SCS18 then click Apply

4) Select the number of tickets you require and remember this is per person NOT per Car.

5) Click next and pay for your Ticket(s) using your chosen method.

6) When the Confirmation Screen appears I would suggest you click "Show Email" and print / save your Ticket.

Once you've done all the above forward your confirmation email to duxfordcorporate@iwm.org.uk and request a vehicle display permit. I would suggest something similar to the following to be on the safe side:


Hi,

Could you please send me a Spring Car Show Display Permit.

My Details are as below:

Name: Your Name

Booking Ref: Your Booking Reference Number (from ticket email)

Car: Your Car

Reg No: Your Registration Plate Number

Club: The Lotus Forums

Also include a PDF of your e-ticket as the Bar Code on it will be transferred on to your Display Permit.

The official Duxford Info on booking is here:

Duxford Spring Car Show Promo Code and Booking Details.pdf


However have it on good authority from Exige_Man just sending them your booking reference isn't enough !


Once you've completed all the above:


Send me a PM and I'll add you to the confirmed list and secure your spot on our pitch.


Thanks

Martyn :D
