According to the website for this year's Kop Hill Climb there will be a Lotus cavalcade, celebrating 70 years of the make. Anyone from here participating?

I am not participating but as a member of the Entrants Team for Kop Hill I have arranged it with help from John Woodhouse and Alan Morgan of Club Lotus. John may not have been able to come and I was on standby but he is coming so all is well and there will be no cries of nepotism!

We planned to have a car from each decade and have almost succeeded, we were hoping for a 2022 Emira but Lotus let us down.

9 or 10 cars will be running the hill AM and PM on Saturday and Sunday.

I was going to take my my old ‘ride to Africa’ 250 Yamaha along for the paddock display, but as I’m currently housebound with Covid it won’t be going anywhere. :(

I was looking forward to it but unfortunately I cant attend this year as it clashes with something else.
Excellent meeting with a wonderful variety of unusual vehicles.
