Some amendments below.

Please read the attached link with regard to events taking place at Le Mans that we would encourage the whole Lotus community to take part in. <a href='http://forums.seloc.org/newsletter/2/cbw.pdf' target='_blank'> CLICK HERE </a>

The emphasis is on the Clubs Parade for Lotus cars built between 1955 and 1980 - a golden opportunity to drive over 3 laps on the full closed Le Mans circuit on the day of the race. <a href='http://forums.seloc.org/newsletter/4/clubs_parade.pdf' target='_blank'> CLICK HERE </a> The Clubs Parade drivers share the same hospitality and parking as the Legends Race drivers amd cars who include Phil Hill, Sir Sterling Moss, Johnny Herbert and not forgetting Malcolm Ricketts!!

The two key points to draw from the above are

1. The Classic British Welcome celebrates the Lotus marque this year - this is a free event therefore the more Lotus cars that attend the better - its is also the starting point for those Lotus cars that take part in the Drivers Parade in the Le Mans city centre on the Friday night.

2. Clubs Parade - for some a unique opportunity to drive the full Le Mans circuit on the day of the race.

Any questions please contact me as above.

For any US owners I may have room for one other car as I have cars being shipped from Boston for the first week in June to the UK specifically for Le Mans.

Do you have any idea about the cost of the transport, line company and what about the car protection (container ?)
Many thanks
