Lotus Elan

Castle Combe 2021

PostPost by: elanfan1 » Sun Mar 21, 2021 10:54 am

Apparently Club Lotus are saying this is still on and they are taking bookings. 29th May I believe.hopefully most will have had both vaccines by then. Luckily I had my second on Friday.

Reckon I’d still mask up though

So, how many are up for attending?

I'd be surprised if it actually happens. Hope it does, but many forums are saying that the Silverstone Classic at the end of July seems a tall order.......

I'm planning on going - Has anybody got any firm news if Le Mans Classic is happening?

Given that parts of France have just gone back into lockdown I think the Classic is probably unlikely. The 24 Hours has been put back to the end of August and whilst I hope to go I'm increasingly doubtful it'll be able to happen with spectators.

As for Castle Combe I just think it's a bit too early as even if the road map runs as planned, public events of any scale don't start until 21 June.

We were booked for CLM, but as a "gang" we decided not to go again. Don't see how it can happen with the state France is in at the moment.

Yeah - Thanks for the comments - Sadly I think I share your pessimism.

Le Mans Classic just been postponed to Jul 2022, actual,dates not confirmed.

I think the situation for U.K. Events is potentially better and I have tickets for both the Silverstone Classic and The Goodwood Revival so am 'adopting hope as a strategy' on these. Guaranteed carry over or refund if they can't go ahead so low risk.

As I understand it this is still on. Apparently expecting/allowed to have 4000 people there.

I’m planning on bringing a pile of parts with me to sell on. They’ll probably be some of the heavier stuff including starter motors, dynamo, hubs, maybe springs and anything else that comes to hand. Bring some heavy duty shopping bags and plenty of cash and change with you if you’re looking for stuff. Going to spend the next few weekends sorting stuff, pricing and making lists.

The more the merrier bringing parts with them as I’m convinced a lot of folk attend for the jumble as well as the track stuff.

Don’t forget your masks.

Had a look at the Club website and it still seems to be on but the site hasn’t been updated since early April. I’ve asked AnnMarie if she can update with the latest news.

Club Lotus confirm this is on and they’ve almost sold out of track passes. If you want to go on the track I’d call ASAP.

I'm intending to be there in my Elan. Are others going, and any in their Elan? How about parking the Elans together to make a bit of a display. I've was there in 2019 and it was good to see the M100 and Excels together.

If you're going to be there in an Elan what do you think?
