Lotus Elan

Club Lotus Suffolk area meet this month (26 Sept 2019).

PostPost by: Keith Scarfe » Thu Sep 19, 2019 8:19 am

This month, the Club Lotus Suffolk area are having their regular meet at a different venue. Normally they meet right over in the east of the county, which is bit too far for me to go, but this time they are meeting at a pub in Horringer which is in west Suffolk. Great for me as it is much nearer and I shall be making my best effort to go along. I just wondered if anyone else on here from West Suffolk, Cambridgeshire type areas may also like to come along. I don't think you have to be a member, just go along to the pub.
It is next Thursday, 26th September at the 6 Belles, Horringer, Bury St Edmunds, IP29 5SJ. They are booking a table to eat a 7pm, but I will probably just go along for a pint and chat about 7.30 - 8.
Cheers.
Keith.

Just to confirm we are meeting at The Six Bells, Horringer on Thursday 26th September.
Anyone wanting to join us for a meal please can you reply to this post ASAP as the pub gets very busy (I understand Thursday night is steak night) and I need to let the 6 Bells know numbers attending.

Hi Ben Sorry didn't know you were on here. Hope my post is OK, just thought it may drum up some more attendees.

Keith
Not a problem posting the meeting. Shame it will be nearly dark but holidays etc. got in the way of organising it for last month. We had a good turn out for the June meeting at The Marlborough in Dedham on the Suffolk/Essex border.
Wondering if a Sunday lunchtime meeting may work occasionally during the winter months ?

Thanks for your comments Gordon and Keith. Nice to meet you both and look forward to seeing you and your Elans at another meeting soon.

I'm planning to arrange a visit to Snetterton on the 27th October to the GT Cup Season Finale race meeting with a group of Lotus owners. We are all disappointed there has been no Lotus Festival at Brands Hatch this year so we decided to organise our own !!! MSV have not been very helpful as I had hoped they would allocate a parking area for only Lotus cars. As they won't the plan is to meet in Thetford, probably Tesco's as it is near the A11, and convoy in so we can all park together. Will be good to get as many Lotus cars together as we can so if you are interested let me know (I've requested a nice sunny day !!)

Keith, thank you - as is yours! Riding through Westley in the dark with candles for headlights - sorry if I flashed brake lights more than I should've!!!

Ben - I've put the 27th in my diary........

With regard to my earlier post regarding attending the GT Cup Season Finale race meeting at Snetterton on Sunday 27th October the circuit have finally agreed to provide a Lotus cars only parking area at the circuit. This will be situated on the right once over the bridge. Entrance is £16 on the day or £12 in advance.

Everyone welcome in their Lotus - It will be good to get as many Lotus cars as we can on display !!
