Their web site has been down for ages - www.kelsport.net

I think they are still trading but I believe they are/have moved premises.

Kelvedon Lotus is actively trading, I have placed a few orders with them in recent months and have gotten very prompt service. They also have a presence on Facebook where they post new items ever other week or so. They have changed premises and I believe ownership recently.

Yes, about 18 months ago Pat Thomas sold his business to Paul Dobson.

Paul is a very keen Elan owner (he has two 26Rs) and has apparently raced for 25 years.

The new website is messy and slow (fast broadband is not seemingly possible in GB), but the firm is very good on advice and I think complements the other firms quite well.

I have dealt with them over the past 18 months and found them very helpful-Paul will answer many of the emails.
