The show starts next Friday, so only a few days to go.

We have a limited number of wristband passes that are not yet allocated. These are available to any member planning to come to the show, and mean you get free entry. We may ask you to accept limited duty to man the stand in exchange. Please post here if you want one stating the day(s) you will be attending, and we will allocate the passes on a first come first served basis.

At the show will be Marcus Horrell’s ‘Eclacco’ car, an Elite and Richard Goslings Excel. In addition Lotusbits are kindly bringing along a rusty Elite chassis together with parts of the new chassis they are developing. This will be a good opportunity to identify the weak points of the Elite chassis. Also, Richard Gosling plans to replace his Excel headlining at the show.

Cheers, Richard

I'm going to the show on Saturday and am willing to help on the stand for a while if you need it.
What car is that?

I should be there at 9am if the train is on time. I will phone you Stuart when I get there. Does your phone number still end 7772. Just checking I have the correct number.

It's a Lotus Mirage :D
The first lotus not to begin with an E.

Ah! A Mirage! A vision that you never attain - sounds a bit familiar….or could it be a Lotus Eclipse?

Just seen on fb that it is Stu’s Mirage/eclipse/ectoplasm/elite or whatever - it truly has been the dance of the seven veils. You’re in the wrong job Stu. Looking forward to hearing the full story - do I detect the hand of Hissey?
