Before there is a lynch mob out to get me from the Lotus club in SA. The "official" Lotus club in South Africa is at http://www.lotusregister.co.za
I belong, as do most of the other Esprit members, although we tend to get out more often than the monthly run with the 7s. There is an "Unofficial" Esprit Club which causes Nick to be heavily fined at the Noggins held with the Lotus Register (all in good fun), of which Nick is the "honorary president".
My website is merely there as a fellow enthusiast owner/record keeper. Not that there's anything fundamentally wrong with your site, but I'd prefer it changed before I have to buy large quantities of rounds in the pub at the next Noggin meeting of the Lotus Register !!

Nick Young's 88, Neil Smyth's 85 (white) & Colin's 85 (grey) -
a beautiful morning for breakfast and three gleaming Esprit's in the parking lot.


These are shots taken on the trip to the Botanical Gardens on the R28,
a great long straight piece of highway between Krugersdorp and Pretoria.
Sundays have a large number of Superbikes and
Supercars out for a run on this stretch of road.
