  1. Its a miracle they actually turned up and collected them today!

  2. Agree ++ Ray. In addition to being a superb and consistent racing driver, Lewis has behaved with dignity over Sunday's debacle and he is a wonderful role model for others to follow.

  3. Agreed Luke - great season. Suspect the race result will stand, there’s no way the FIA will want that much egg on their faces….not to mention the other powers that be in F1 such as Liberty Media etc. It’s so wrong though.

  4. Morning all... pleased to say that after 12 months without a Lotus in my life I finally have another (rather special) Elise in the garage. Took delivery of a vivid green Cup 250 Final Edition around six weeks ago and have been smiling ever since 😄 On the direct instruction of Ray (😉), I've included a couple of pics below (if you're on Instagram there are plenty more if you're interested - http://instagram.com/kerm111t/). We'll also be posting a video about the car on the One Eleven Cars YouTube channel in the next couple of weeks (if you're not already subscribed we'd really apprecia

  5. Just picked up my 111R after a lot of service work at PJS and I have to say it’s changed my recently purchase car from fun to drive to an absolute pleasure. New front and rear springs and dampers, track rod end, anti roll bushes as well as a new radiator and fans. It took longer and cost a little more due to the bodged repairs it’s it’s earlier life but I am really pleased with the work and care taken on my Elise. I have to save up now to sort the bodywork out, maybe during the winter as I need to be driving it during the hopefully sunny summer.

  6. Its been awhile since being on here! and I haven't seen a lot of you in blooming ages1 Back in March last year I decided to bite the bullet and go head first into an engine swap in my S1, Covid helped this somewhat by stopping my boys football/rugby training and matches giving me week day nights and weekends. First I needed to source an engine, after Alan and Alex having there cars to ponder over I was initially looking at a K20A2 EP3 engine, but finding one under 100k was near on impossible unless it was re built and costing a small fortune! So I decided to look at the slightly

  8. Lotus in the Peak 2022 takes place over the weekend of 8th to 10th July 2022. We are very proud to announce that this year’s event is in aid of Rainbows Hospice for children and young people with life limiting illnesses. Have a look at rainbows.co.uk/about-rainbows to see the incredible work they do. All profits will be passed on to this very deserving charity. The event has a similar format to previous years but with the main event on Sunday 10th returning to Chatsworth House, as one of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire’s chosen supported charities for 2022.

  11. So a mere 10 months after ordering, I finally got my hands on my new car. Picked up my Elise 250 Cup in Heritage Racing Green yesterday from Central Lotus. Thought I picked a dry weekend but what did I know 🙄 Too late for any runs now, but fingers crossed I can get back out for some once the weather turns in the new year!

  13. We had a couple of extra cm on Sunday so around 8 or 9" in total. Nothing today but the roads have been ploughed and have now frozen solid so you can hardly stand up on them! I guess it will all disappear in the next couple of days though. Our winter transport is an old Suzuki SX4 4WD with winter tyres - it's pretty good in the snow Couple more shots from this morning, this time with a bit of early sunshine It was too damn cold to venture outside so the first one is taken from the front door and the second one is through the conservatory glass

  15. Another week has gone by and the Evora delivered in spades on a 300-mile round trip to Hethel for our MLOC tour of Classic Team Lotus. The afternoon before the trip I decided on the spur of the moment to wrap the sills in gloss black. Don’t ask me why, I just decided to get on with it! Took this at Ketteringham Hall, home to Team Lotus F1 back in the 1970's. I’m loving the black sills look and am planning to do the front splitter - possibly today - but not the roof, I quite like that in silver with the diamond cut wheels.

  16. Well after very many years/months the application for an IVA test is in. Pretty much finished, couple of little bits to do but almost ready to roll! Suspension now set up. Car looked over and nothing major in terms of IVA, just a couple of tiny changes just to be safe. And removing the masking tape off the leading edge of the door.

  22. Superb season that totally obliterated the snoozefest F1 has become. Only to be ruined by off track deals under the safety car. Suspect RBR retired Perez as part of the deal so as to give MB the constructors title and so less leverage in regards to the race result, Horner even stated “how right” it was that they shared the titles. Utter farce and the only sporting moment that’s ever made me feel real anger.

  23. Not sure its well done Max? Like Daveb99 says there was only winner today on pure pace and it is Lewis and sadly like Dave says utterly contrived the biggest winner today yes obviously Verstappen but in my opinion and sadly again the biggest winner is Netflix. Liberty Media Corporation are obviously pushing the sport in this direction, the result today is more Coronation Street then a great sporting moment.

  24. Great season but the finale was utterly contrived. Hamilton had the faster car today and if the safety car regulations were followed he would have won the race and championship. Instead we had a farcical last lap because the Race ‘Director’ decided he wanted a showdown final lap. If that was a race earlier in the season, with no championship at stake, they would have simply applied the rules and the race would have finished under the safety car - just like this one should have - or they could have raced with a lap to go but without the lapped cars passing the safety car first. Either

  26. What a fantastic weekend we have just witnessed for F1 and in particular for Lewis Hamilton, yes he is not everyone’s favourite for what ever reason usually the wrong ones. What he achieved this weekend was a true masterclass in driving ability. One of the most epic comebacks you will ever witness.

  27. Back home now after a 200 mile round trip to pick up new Elise, visit and stay at my aunts place near Oxford, then home. What a great car, quick, less noisy than I was expecting, more comfy than I thought it would be. Turns heads. Needs a dam deep clean and polish everywhere, and some TLC to some of the trim. Now I think this is a keeper instead of my black Elise, so will look to sell that one in January. Badg settled in straight away when I got home

  28. Couldn’t agree more, love him or hate him (personally it’s the racing I want to see, I don’t care what the drivers are like as people!) Lewis has just driven the wheels off the Merc all weekend - a cut above every other driver. Absolutely incredible performance. I personally hope he wins the next two to set up an amazing finale.

  29. I'm donating money to offset the CO² from the petrol i use. It funds CO²-saving projects in countries that need it most. At 8 euros per 1000 miles, it's affordable (based on 35mpg). It's not the solution to all problems, but hopefully it helps until sustainable petrol is in the pumps. You could do it too. Www.atmosfair.de

  36. 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

  38. Thanks guys. So nice to hear such lovely heartfelt comments. Part of the reason for the heart strings twanging at this decision is how great the community is, and I include everyone in here I have/haven’t met. Truly hope to be back in a Lotus but our young family need a dad with a 4 seat car. Best Matt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  44. 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.

  47. I can't see that there was any finance Phil - I asked for (and received) copies of the invoice (which showed it was paid by credit card number *********1234, as they do) and the full payment credit card receipt with the same number. My only concern was the possibility of a 'log book loan' but he had both keys and the original V5 so that seemed unlikely too. I was going to do a proper HPI check (not a cheapy!) to further cover that risk. No, I think it was a straight up car, I simply misjudged the situation by making an offer rather than going straight in at asking. Covid further complicat
