    Another ex vx220 owner here. Only got rid of mine last year and now into an Evora. I have been getting out in the peaks super early on sunday mornings in the summer but its a bit boring on your own so feel free to give me a nudge if there are any sheffield/peaks runs happening? Never realised there were so many lotus owners around town!

    Ah ok, Aston is more Rotherham side (the right Aston?) so a few extra hills between us Anyhow I'm out of the picture for a month, 2 weeks holiday then 2 weeks isolation so no runs for me for a while You lot had better behave yourselves while I'm away!

    Hi all, Just been messaging Scott Scotty on Instagram and joined up. I’m based in Sheffield, any locals? I’ve recently jumped into my Club Racer finally getting a proper Lotus having had a VX220 when I was 23 back in the day! Just treated myself to a valved 2bular system...it’s a thing of beauty to hear! πŸ˜‚ Be delighted to join you on some runs out and meet you all soon Cheers Matt

    Great drive out to Hathersage this morning for a swim in the open air pool which is fab, heated to 28deg all year. First proper drive out on quiet roads after changing squealing 2 piece disks for EBC turbos so I could properly enjoy the car. What a machine πŸ˜πŸ’¨

    Welcome Matt.....I've not been on here much this year with all that's being going on, and I've missed most of the club runs this year, but would be great to see you on one. Fellow previous VX220 owner here too, but I see you're in Aston? Well that's a coincidence, 'cos so am I...... I think I might have seen an orange flash not long ago. Think we connected via Instagram last week.... (I'm @alpinetracks)

    It’s funny you say that as I’ve been trying to buy an S1 111S for three years!! It’s still a possibility if I can persuade him to part with it. My powers of persuasion have failed so far. They’re all special in their own way Dean, as we all know. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

    My last Lotus went at the weekend and it feels like the end of an era. Ten years ish continuous ownership and probably 15 years since I bought my first. They have been very good to me over the years but strangely I haven’t missed one of them yet. I’m sure I’ll be back at some point down the line but I have other priorities in my life at the mo. All the best to you all and I’m sure our paths will cross sooner or later.

    Haha thanks Rich, yes they’ve all stayed in the UK, which is probably down to Covid restrictions. I’m glad they have to be honest, had a couple of enquiries from France and Belgium but nothing came of them. Cup 260 was probably the toughest one to see drive off, as it took me over 4 years to find one! I’ll be back I’m sure 😊

    Thanks chaps and thanks for the kind words. I might get withdrawal symptoms soon and have to pop over to Hassop one Sunday morning! Take care and enjoy your cars!

    Welcome, very nice looking car you have there, I had a Signature Orange 350 Sport for a year and still have a soft spot for a bright orange Exige I'm probably not too far from you, just across one hill and into the Peak District, near to the village of Eyam. What part of Sheffield are you? Keep an eye on the events section for Peak District or Midland tick runs - they are generally on a Sunday morning (for clear roads) although we really ought to try some evenings etc for a change. You have to be quick though if you want a place though, due to CV restrictions we place a limit of 6 cars in a group and these places always fill up very quickly.

    We have family in Retford and noticed the Hop Pole was open again and even as a Lotus flag outside lol. Was thinking about going to last meet there but for some reason could not make it, is it worth the trip?

    So, we have been picking blackberries to make jam (and a pie). Sugar was required and I was tasked to be the hunter gatherer and go to the supermarket , three minutes drive away. Reason enough to pull the Lotus out of the garage! Three hours later, I returned with the sugar. Needless to say, certain words were spoken to me expressing displeasure in my actions. This has lead to the revelation. I can’t be the first to choose a ridiculously long route to a destination to maximise time driving. I can’t be the first to be reprimanded for such an action. This must be a much repeated scenario throughout the history of Lotus cars. It has to be where the reputation of unreliability comes from. ”Hello dearest, I’m back with the ............... you asked me to get.” ”WHERE THE BLOODY HELL HAVE YOU BEEN FOR THREE HOURS?” ”Well, your know, the darnedest thing, sweet pea. The blasted car broke down again.”
