As you no doubt read in April's issue of Club Lotus News, we?ve joined forces with Magnitude Events to organise an exclusive track day on the official Lotus test track at Hethel on Saturday July 9th. This is the first time Lotus owners have been allowed to drive their own Lotus around this historic track which has been superbly refurbished in recent years to full FIA standard.

This email is to let you know that we still have a few places left but if you'd like to be part of this exciting day you'll need to be quick.
Number are limited to just 50 in total to ensure that everyone gets plenty of track time and maximum value for money. The cost is a bargain ?110 and if you would like to come please book now otherwise you?ll risk being disappointed.

Here's the schedule for the day:
10.30 ­ Gates open
10:30 ­ Event registration followed by the obligatory sound check which is 98db static and 105db at 34 revs.
11:20 ­ Safety Briefing
12.00 ­ Sighting and familiarisation laps.
12.00 ­ Track opens, open pit lane format.
16:00 ­ Evora 400 Experience.
17.00 ­ Track closes.

Extra drivers and friends are also welcome and full details are on Magnitude?s website. High quality on-site catering including hot refreshments and using locally sourced produce will be available all day. We've also invited Mike Kimberley as our special guest.

Professional Lotus factory ARDS qualified instructors led by Martin Donnelly will be on hand to offer personal 1-2-1 tuition at a small extra cost can be booked in advance or on the day (subject to availability). Towards the end of the event there will also be a unique opportunity to experience an Evora 400 driven by Martin or a member of the Lotus Driving Academy for only ?40 for 3 laps.

Only Lotus cars will be allowed on track and they must be safe and road legal. Track insurance isn?t compulsory but is recommended and if you wish to trailer your car to Hethel there is plenty of parking in the paddock. Slick or race tyres and competition cars are not permitted and good driving manners are the order of the day.

Collectors LOTUS ESPRIT 1982
For sale Privately, in somerset, United Kingdom
Lotus Esprit S3,23,000 original miles from new.Unmolested condition,unmarked unique green half leather ,half cloth interior with silver headlining.No stress cracks on the body work.Totally original spec no mods to engine or body work.Full Lotus service history untill taken of the road 24 years ago.

This Esprit has not been run since then and would need need a full restoration (I would suggest a body off restoration.Paintwork is in very good condition but from the bonnet forwards has suffered some pitting to the lacquer. This car was originally a Lotus Company car and was issued to Mr T Enrite for the first two years (a Lotus CEO at the time),afterwards it was sold on the open market. Only four were made in this spec,two for the UK,one for Europe and one went to Hong Kong and this was the last one.In my long years of Esprit owner ship I have never seen another in this colour,This car typifies the 80,s retro style. I have a Lotus certificate of provenance which verifies the car ,engine , gearbox and chassis numbers. This car has both investment and rarity potential.

The Esprit is starting to gather pace in the classic car world and i feel that the only way is up especially with one this rare. All chrome work is in good order only the chrome cant rails need replacing(very easy and available) This is an investment as it stands or it would be an easy rebuild because it is complete and original (not in boxes and I would budget £5000 if i was going to refurbish it my self) This Esprit has the potential to be a show stopper.These cars are overlooked at the moment and I think that they are about to get the notice they deserve. Serious inquires only.

Ultimate Journey: 1987 Lotus Esprit HCI
from barnfinds.com
I have to give this seller a hand of applause! You see they live in Eagle River, Alaska and once made the 300 mile trip from Anchorage to Valdez and got caught in a snow storm in this turbo charged Lotus. Rather than waiting out the storm, they put this British sports car to the test and pushed their way through the ice and snow. They’ve had this Lotus for a while and have already gone through everything to make it a good driver. With 113k miles, it’s likely the highest mileage Esprit still on the road. You can find this Lotus here on eBay and if you win it, you could fly to Alaska and take it on the journey of a life time down the ALCAN highway!

This Lotus Esprit remains in the original factory body colour of 'S04' Orange with Orange / Green patterned interior. The car left the production line on the 4th September 1976 being orginally allocated to 'Bell & Colvill' according to the order form, however the dispatch book list the car as being sent to 'Grange Motors' of Brentwood. The car then returned to Lotus un-sold on the 28th January 1977 being later dispatched to the final selling dealers 'Andersons (Newton-Mearns) Ltd of Glasgow. Ironically the system shows the car being maintained by 'Len Street Ltd' who were based in Chelsea, the other end of the country again!

The Esprit started production at serial number 100 in June 1976, therefore based on serial number sequence for the UK market the car is the 63rd Esprit out of 282 cars. Only 20 Orange car produced and one of only 15 with this body /trim combination.This Lotus appears on the HPi database under a previous registration number as being ‘Damaged’.

Geometry lesson by Giugiaro. Lotus Turbo Esprit

This example also has the full 'Essex spec' - air con, full red leather interior, Panasonic Cockpit roof stereo, light weight Compomotive 3-piece split rims. Identical to the exploding 'For Your Eyes Only' car (apart from the colour of the leather).
