Oulton Park Gold Cup weekend

PostPost by: EMA7K » Fri Aug 28, 2009 10:46 am

The Gold cup is on at Oulton Park this weekend. Practice tomorrow and racing Sunday and Monday. Plenty of Elans appear in the entry list. I'll be there all weekend, although weather forecast does not look brilliant on Sunday. Looks like DHC on Saturday and the Zetec on Sunday.

You lucky bugger. I enjoyed the weekend (well the Saturday actually) I spent there with CLOG.
Don't forget to post some pictures of all of the Lotus there :wink:
Have a good 'un.

I'm still on track for Bank Holiday Monday - tyres are being fitted to the Minilites today and am hoping to do a few miles tomorrow before making the 30 mile trip to Oulton! This will be the longest trip in the Elan since the 1980s, hoping the rain holds off.

MIne is a Lagoon Blue FHC Sprint with tatty paint work - so if you see a Sprint matching this description by the side of the road to or from Oulton on Monday please stop and help!!

PS Gareth - havent had a chance to ring you but hopefully might see you on Monday - I usually park overlooking Denton's/Cascades

Depending on weather I will be in EMA - a green sprint DHC with yellow lettering reading lotus elan in place of the usual sprint stripes or a Norfolk Mustard Elan +2 Zetec. I usually go in at the Knicker Brook entrance (less crowded) and park on the hill but I will be wandering around so I will seek you out.
planning on going to see practice tomorrow afternoon and raing both days-lets hope weather improves.
