Post by andyelise135 » Sun Sep 30, 2018 2:25 pm

HI Everyone

Just got back from a cracking weekend down at the Lotus 70th what a fantastic day full credit to them at Hethel :fantastic:

I spotted Gav Gowlett and Dave C's cars down there on the track but did not spot you guys down there did look out for you both though

A few Photos from the day including the factory first photo is of me and Andrew Lee's in black Exige before we set off he has applied to be added to the group and loves his Lotus

Thanks Dave :D

I did see you arrive but you had just gone past if not would have got a photo of you coming in, me and Drew had a walk down but got about 3/4 of the way down and started to get blisters plus the second phase of Classic Lotus F1 on track was on an hour later :ROFLMAO: so turned around and started off back to the grandstand


Hope to see you up at Norlog on Wednesday night

Watched the Drone Video and looks like there was a vast amount of cars on the track, having been down there the weekend before on an Exige experience day we thought making the trip two weekends in a row was a bit extreme>
Glad to see the weather played its part and some nice pictures on this forum and the Lotus Elan forum to show the day was well received

Is that Lotus Carlton estate genuine? I saw one at the Gold Cup from a distance, which I presume was the same one, and wondered if it was genuine. I don't remember them making an estate.

Apparently not a factory build but has been built with genuine parts from a saloon

I was thinking that myself about the estate as they was always a saloon, it looked like it had been built with genuine parts so that would explain it Dave :-D
