  1. Following a successful screening of the McLaren film, The Northern Lights cinema in Wirksworth (DE4 4FG) will be showing the Williams film on Thursday 30th November. Having had a good response to the McLaren film, the cinema is keen to repeat the experience with Williams. Booking is essential - see https://www.thenorthernlightcinema.co.uk/whats-on/ For those that missed the launch publicity, Williams is the story of Frank and the Team, based on the book that Frank’s wife Ginny wrote before her death in 2013. The film builds on the book with recent interviews with family and team members. There is also archive footage of the years Williams have operated in F1. Hartley
  2. See you there! If you arrive early Simon, I'll be in the Featherstone micropub on the high street. Otherwise see you in the Northern Lights!
  3. Book ahead just in case!
  4. The Northern Lights Cinema in Wirksworth is screening the McLaren Story film on Wednesday 26th July and there are still places available. Wirksworth is about 15 miles north of Derby. This is a really progressive cinema and the owner is trying different sorts of films to reach new audiences. If the McLaren film sells out (its a 52 seat cinema, so not impossible!) then he is prepared to consider screening the Williams story. So if anyone is interested book seats online now. Screen and sound is good, this business was set up in an ex retail premises about 4 years ago. Well worth supporting. https://www.thenorthernlightcinema.co.uk/whats-on/
  5. The Jim Clark Trust launched the crowdfunding appeal for the final £300,000 required to complete financing for the new museum at Race Retro yesterday. Details from Motorsport: http://www.motorsportmagazine.com/opinion/f1/jim-clark-trust-appeal I am sure that between us we could help this good cause along a bit. To donate see: http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/jim-clark-museum I would really like to see a suitable tribute to this great Lotus Ambassador. Let's hope they get the sum required.
  6. I took the Elise to Jon yesterday for an annual service, having won the prize in last years LitP raffle. Just thought I'd say a public Thank You to Jon for supporting MLOC in such a generous way. His place takes a bit of finding but none the worse for that. And if you happen to be in the market for a VX220 he must have the biggest selection available, as well as a good number of Elise's. Thanks again Jon.
  7. Just had mine done by Reep in Leicester (see www.reepmidlands.com/). Suggest you give them a call. Pete george is the MD.
  8. I think that the directors should consider restricting these works of art to full members only. After all, the calendar alone is worth the annual subscription!
  9. Dean - I have an (unused) Lotus Sport sunstrip - if I can find it post house move. Let me have a dig around in the new mega-garage to see if I can find it. If I can, you're welcome to it as I've decided not to fit it to the Elise.
  10. He must be having a reasonably good day - this post has been going nearly 2 hours and he hasn't posted yet! Happy Birthday Dean! No-one's spilt the beans on how many birthday's he's had yet?
