CLASSIC TEAM LOTUS VISIT – SUNDAY11 AUGUST

by Graham Kirkup

Club member Steve Nash has offered a tour of Classic Team Lotus at their works/display area in Hethel, however spaces are limitted to c 20 so first come first served as they say.

It is arranged that we meet at CTL for the tour at 10:30 the tour takes approx 2.5hrs and includes tea/coffee.

Visitors will need to book in ‘paid for’ version at entry.

The site is near Wymondham off the A11 and approx 50+ miles from Cambridge:

Classic Team Lotus

Potash Lane

Hethel

NR14 8EY

Those travelling from Cambridge direction will meet up at 08:45 at Tesco Milton car park if you wish to travel in convoy.

It is proposed to have a meal afterwards for those interested at a local pub The Bird In The Hand  nearby at Wreningham, which has a long association with Lotus.

This is a great oportunity to see this great place of motor racing history and innovation together with vehicles which are still in the Chapman family ownership.

Please email me prior to Thursday 1st august to book spaces as this is somewhat a one off by arrangement with Steve, it would also be helpful to know numbers wishing to eat at The Bird In The Hand pub afterwards, for obvious catering reasons.

Looking forward to the event and meeting all.

ps. planned events: Rally of Ely Sat Aug 3    – Higham Ferrers Sunday Aug4

July Club Night

by Robert Neil McLeod

July already !!! Is it an age thing or are the months really going quicker ?.

Anyway on the 10th of July is will be our club meeting and we where going to do a run to the Anderton Boat Lift , on refection this might be too much for club night as we always have quite a lot to discuss.   So the plan now is to do this run after the Cars & Coffee meeting Sunday 14th July leaving around 1pm , for which I have printed out 20 copy’s of the route to the boat life and from there to the Blue Cap Pub, we are not booking a table as some may choose to eat at the boat lift and others at the Blue Cap, you can decide on the day.

Oakamoor Hill Climb 13th July

I have registered 15 cars to go to this event somewhere we have not been before,  I am still waiting from Lucy to email the passes to me as soon as I have more info I will let you know. This is again proving to be a very busy weekend, If you think it is too much, we may be could delay the run to the boat lift till August , what do you think ??

Let me know your thoughts on this.

See you at club night. Neil
