Who's going to Castle Combe?

PostPost by: Si_130/5 » Thu May 18, 2006 4:22 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm working hard to get my red +2 ready for the big day out in the Wiltshire sunshine on Saturday 27th - Anyone else who's going please post here and we can all meet up.
If it all comes together I'll be in a red S130/5 with the reg letters AHK (otherwise it'll be a eurobox!).

Best wishes,

Si

I am planning to go in my beast; I am not planning to go on the track but will enjoy the 3 hour drive up :)

I am just taking it so Si can critic it as I know he is dieing to :)

Si please bear in mind before you see it that it is still a work-in-progress :)

See you there

I'll be there, and venturing onto the track, providing the new silencer is quiet enough!

Yup - I'll be there... silvery/blue +2 130s.. may not venture onto the track after some fairly costly repairs after some very 'hot' laps last year - and as I use the thing every day, it's prob not wise...! but I'll prob give in to temptation!

I'll be there from mid morning (ish)!!Whats the plan??How does one identify other lotuselan.net people??

If you see a scruffy golf with a big notice in the windscreen saying"Parts wanted for series 1 Elan"...that'll be me!!

Hoping to put faces to names,and half hoping to meet mike brotherhood(elite specialist)

Perhaps we should get some forum mechandise made. T-shirts, dumper stickers etc.

This may be a bit late but I have just made a banner you can put in your car to identify yourself.

Thanks Matt

At least you can see I drove my +2 the 170 miles there and 170 miles back :D The beast ran like a dream, how was the Mondeo? :lol:

I want to see you in the +2 next time :)

Here are a few of the pics I took, I took them before it pissed down, sorry Matt none of you in your Eurobox :lol:

I had a great day but pity about all the rain in the afternoon. It was my first time round castle coombe so my first few laps were a geography lesson. I was very pleased with the performance of my Elan and we could have been a lot quicker if I knew the circuit better, more tuning of the nut behind the wheel needed. It was good to put some more faces to the names. I also picked up my copy of Brian (elanman) book. Very impessive it is too. See you again at Classic Le Mans.
