  1. Good luck with the move Murray, and I hope it all works out for you and the family. It's been a pleasure to know you over the last few years, and you will be genuinely missed in this club. Don't be a stranger!
  2. Hope you had a good one Dean
  3. Happy birthday mate

    Lovely And answers the question of who's orange v6 i saw in bridgford a couple of weeks ago!
  5. You have a PM
  6. Simon, one of my dad's mates has an atom which he tracks a fair bit. If you are interested I can see if I can get his contact details for you if you have any questions. No worries if not, I know there is a wealth of info available through Google and forums!
  7. Sounds like a great trip Simon. On reflection, did you prefer this year or last year? Not that i'm likely to get a pass for this kind of trip for a few years yet, but its always good to have some ideas lined up for when the time comes!
  8. That looks great.
  9. Welcome to the club. Take it steady in the wet and I'm sure you'll be fine. It sounds like you intend to use it primarily as a road car, but getting it on track is the best way to find out what the car does in different situations in my opinion. It's brilliant fun too! They are amazingly capable cars. I'm sure you'll love it!
  10. No, both Gav and Jody were of the opinion it didn't need it. So hopefully it won't be an issue. We have fitted a new stat so fingers crossed that will be ok for a while.
  11. Picked the car up from Gav earlier this week. Fingers crossed that has sorted it. Temp was stuck at 80 with no movement on the way back home so early signs are positive.
  12. Just about to set off. I love this trip! Wellies packed this year though, it's going to be wet!
  13. Sorry to hear the lotus has gone but i do like the gt86. I test drove one before i got the evora. The evora was ultimately on a different level and i could make the maths work on the additional purchase price, but i would definitely consider a gt86 in future. I think it was the only test drive i have done where i have provoked the tail to slide around a bit. It all felt so natural for the car and the salesman in the passenger seat just sat there chuckling to himself!
  14. Yeah it is vvc Dean. I'm hoping I don't need a new one. Gav reckons it will be fine with a skim. Fingers crossed
  15. I knew this felt fairly familiar http://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/forum/topic/61476-ongoing-temperature-woes/ Gav should currently be putting together my k series having had the head off and skimmed when he found an indented fire ring Who says lightning doesn't strike twice? It is a different car though i suppose!
