Terry, sorry for not responding, but the dates are perfect for a trip including Mrs D, but I checked my work diary and find a clash the next week. Unless I can get a colleague to attend the work meeting (in sunny Zagreb), I will have to bow out.. This means I will not know if I can come until a couple of weeks before hand.. Would this be enough notice to arrange some local accommodation?

Jeremy
Can you PM me your email address and I'll keep you up to date of any news. I don't think it would be a problem to find some accommodation as we know quite a few gites/chambre d'hotes locally
Cheers
Terry
PS Where is Zagreb!!!!!

Even with an announcement in the January edition of the Club Lotus UK magazine, we received no additional emails.
We are sorry to say that due to lack of interest we have had to cancel the event and perhaps postpone until next year....

We are however going to be doing our French event in May with more than 6 Elan+2's and 2 Elans , pictures will follow....................

As Serge said above we had 12 cars! Unfortunately we had 8 Elan +2's rather than 10 expected. One had to drop out due to the owner having a bad back and the other had ignition problems but came along in his Elise!
Speaking of ignition problems , we had more than fair share over the weekend with a defective coil and condenser causing minor breakdowns. It seems that re-manufactured Lucas parts are causing problems everywhere! (I have been on to Susan to get a spare Lumenition insert for my distributor and too carry in the car as well as a complete ignition set up)
Some more pictures.......... and as they say here La prochaine fois!!!

See you all next year :wink:

Looks like a great gathering and just what having these cars is all about. Can't wait to be able to join you.
