  1. Good Morning All, I'm posting up my experience in case anyone else was thinking about getting their geo done. I have had my 220 Cup car for a year and it's my first Lotus so I didn't have a Lotus benchmark for handling but had wondered about the car feeling twitchy at speed so hearing how pleased Ray was after his car was geo'd at PJS, I thought I would give it a go. Nick at PJS did all the work which was very comprehensive and involved discussing options with me (for example, to ensure the car was equally sorted whether I had my Yoko V105s or Toyo R888Rs on) as well as explaining a

  3. Hi all, Unsure if this is the correct forum to post an introduction, but it seems only polite to do so. New to Lotus. I have booked a `Sunday run this coming weekend (Lotus in the Peaks 30/07/21). Booking no. Order #4141 I note the comments above re: global e mail. Travelling from Milton Keynes (M1). Red Lotus Elise HX06... Give me a wave Plan to depart 05:00 hrs, provided I can surgically remove my son from his mattress. He will be my crewmate and appropriate adult on the day. He is in his second year at Leicester University (Engineering). Love him dear

  4. I disagree about avoiding the TT times. Get out crazy early and although a little damp, the mountain is one way. It’s like your own race track that’s repeatable over and over again. Also the atmosphere on the island at that time is electric with so many people there. Just find a local to follow and they’ll get you around the crowds when you want to get somewhere.

  5. Channel 4 17.45 Sat 17th July…Lotus-A New Dawn. Presumably the Evija/Emira story. Haven’t seen it advertised before so hopefully not a repeat!

  6. Where was that baby Elan? I saw the red Exige (and had a chat to the owner about LitP), + a red Sports Racer 111R, + a grey S2 Elise from a distance (Dean I think!) and my mate went in his S2 baby elan soft top. Great show but insanely hot and we had to leave at around 1.00, my kit car was seriously complaining on the way home with the hot conditions, there were times when I thought I wasn't going to make it back - all part of the fun

  8. Well, my first trip to the home of Lotus this weekend and missing a great run out in North Notts was a disappointment, as we checked in @ 8;30 am then to be told we had no Paramedics on site so the day would be cancelled 😞 some frantic phoning began to try and find a replacement … finally a paramedic was found who drove over from Cromer and arrived at 11;30 am ! So we were off , 3 siting laps and the track was awesome built for any Lotus 😍 … did 5 fast laps … was all over the V6,s 😜 came in to let the tyres cool down and raised the engine cover 🙈 gear box oil all over the top selector arm 😔my

  9. Well, we arrived a bit later than planned at 11:00 on the Thursday, but it turned out really well with one of the best spots in the "supercar" car park, no rain, and more stuff to look at than ever. We were kind of surprised by just how busy it was given that it was a Thursday, but I guess that this illustrates just how much pent-up demand there is for awesome events like FOS, especially given that last year's event was cancelled. The very first target on the list of "must see" exhibits was....... yes, you've guessed it...... the Lotus stand, and the Evija and Emira. Both a

  10. Hi Eric, Good to read about your day. We were there on Friday from opening to close, also had a fabulous day and like you say, so much to see. We could easily have filled 2 days. I think I remember seeing the car with the wing mirror, so my guess is a Pagani Huayra? I was most taken by another carbon extravaganza, a McLaren 720S LT in full carbon weave, I remember seeing a documentary on the process which involves lining up every single weave line across the whole car. Incredible. We kept going back to the Lotus stand all day to try and catch it without a queue and less busy. By 5pm

  11. Checked into the Goodwood Hotel, seen the new Emira already been asked not to post pics . Will give my full honest opinion in the next few days, but have to say it looks rather special in the flesh.

  13. I love the look of it, especially from the side, really beautiful. It's a great replacement for the Evora, but I feel very uneasy that it's nothing at all like an Elise or Exige. It's 1400kg+! I think it's also sad that there's not going to be a convertible in the range anymore. It doesn't look like the sort of car that could be easily made into a convertible either, so i don't expect to see it in a later model. Personally i would have liked to see this, and also a smaller, more exige-y car alongside it as well. Still, very cool, and i'll definitely have a test drive in one wh

  14. Just watched Mat Watson's review on Carwow, which suggests boot 150L capacity and 210L behind seats, enough for 2 cabin size bags. I think you'll need to travel light but by the looks of it, a worthwhile sacrifice 😎 What a stunning thing and at £60k for the 2.0L AMG engine & box, launch control, rear LSD. Surely, and hopefully, this thing will be flying out of the factory 🤞

  15. Toyota are there, and there is something on the lotus website too. I couldn't see Caterham, BAC, KTM, Polestar etc. Perhaps we are that niche now! Or perhaps the UK government should think a bit more about it's UK manufacturing entities. (hee hee, I got to write the word titties without incurring the wrath of #metoo, or perhaps not now I've said that...................!)

  16. Maybe many of you will have already seen this but.............. Pretty sure the speedo is in MPH. It looks other worldly. Uphill starts at 4:30 in. Not a fan of JWW, but not seen any in car footage before.
