There are spaces for this tour of Classic Team Lotus ,but please respond to myself prior to Thursday August 1st,
This tour of the works/display area normaly costs £45, but by special invitation we enter the ‘paid for’ section, I would anticipate a voluntary donation to help maintain the set up.

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
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.
