The 90's Race Part 1 – Forza Horizon 3
Corvette ZR1 vs Lotus Esprit V8 vs Ferrari F355
Computer Games get more and more realistic±. Published on Nov 18, 2016.

––––––––––––––

Sunday 7th May, 10am – 4pm
A few years ago we joined a number of classic car clubs for a ‘Boys Breakfast’ at the RAF Museum Cosford in Shropshire. We had a superb turn out and Lotus took pride of place on the front line of the car park due to our impressive numbers.

The ‘Boys Breakfast’ is no longer running but ….our Classic cars are! I’ve contacted the Museum and their diary for Car Club visits is fairly flexible at the moment. Our admission is free and car parking is £4.00 for the day. We can start the day with a ‘boys breakfast’ in the ‘Refuel Restaurant’. Guided tours can be pre-booked as an added extra to our visit. If you would like to support this ‘Lotus gathering’ please could you email me and if we have sufficient numbers I will make a firm booking with the Museum by the end of the year.

Best wishes
Elaine

Should you ever drive your childhood “poster car”?
Lotus Esprit S3 review | Road & Race, Published on Oct 10, 2016
I assume most boys had a picture of an exotic super-car on their wall when they were young. For me it was the Lotus Esprit. Most people know it for the Bond movies but for me it was down to a computer game by Gremlin Graphics called Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge.

So when I got offered the chance to drive an Esprit I was initially excited to do so. Nearer the time though I wondered if it was a good idea – could the car ever live up to expectations?

Number Plates
From Twitter (DIYauto.com)
A very appropriate license plate for this Lotus Esprit. It must fly with that twin turbo V8.

Practical Classics photoshoot
Millbrook testing ground on Sunday 28th Augush
Practical Classics are looking to do a photoshoot covering the Top 100 popular cars as voted for by their readers and the Lotus Elan and Lotus Esprit are on that list. There isn't a specific Mk required for either car, we would just like to ensure they are represented.

I need to try and get as many (if not all) of the cars to Millbrook testing ground on Sunday 28th August for 10am (this could make gate duty interesting on the day!)

This is a chance for an owner to be part of something big for the biggest classic car mag in the UK.

There are a few unfortunatelys, some imposed by Millbrook, others by the logistics of such a task and I have attached the Practical Classics brief to explain them.

Here are the main points:
One car, one person - we can only accept the driver, no passengers (Millbrook imposed). Basically we are limited to numbers for security reasons and I do need the full name of the driver to get them booked in.
No personal photography (Millbrook imposed) - Millbrook is a ‘live’ testing ground and photography is strictly controlled due to some of the cars being tested. All owners will get copies of the photos taken on the day for their personal use.
There will be no refreshments available - the owners will need to bring a flask and a packet of sandwiches, this is due to the fact that there is nowhere to do refreshments!
No fuel expenses - I accept that this will be the main stumbling block for 99% of owners but there is just not the budget to do this. We are not asking anyone to do anything they don’t want to do.

If you can send any interested members my details I can give them further details for them to make a decision - we would like to get all 100 cars represented.

Many thanks
