Donington - Weekend

Yeah, yeah… I know it should be in “Meets”, but figure that’s way down the page and you may not see it (so sue me [image]http://www.exiges.com/ubb/NonCGI/images/icons/smile.gif[/image] )Who’s going.What days are you going.Where are you driving from.Should we try to get all parked up together somehow.

I will be there on Saturday, but still only have my Elan. Have organised the last couple of years for a pre show meet, so that a group of Elan’s can drive the last 5 mins to the show together and hence stand a chance of parking together. See here for the sort of details I give out : http://www.lotus.thepitlane.com/Cars/Lotus_Elan_M100/Donington_2001/donington_2001.html Not had much time to organise it this year, but already have 13 confirmed Elans, plus meeting a few more at the show. There is a Lotus parking area at the show, but in the past they just park you in rows as you turn up.

Donington Park service station would seem to be a good place to meet up.You leave the M1 23a at that exit to get to Donington anyway

Its new services and has fuel / food / drink plus shops, and plenty of parking. Might see you there, if you are there 10 - 10:30am.

Being the mad/bad crazy to know kinda guy I am, I’ll probably be their (Donington Services) both days at around 10-10:30

whats all this then? when? have I been walking around with eyes/ears closed?

Here are the answers I was given.1. Is the Donington weekend open to all-comers, or Lotus Club members only (I’m a member anywho)Yep - anyone who pays2. Do you have to book ?No -turn up with some cash3. What’s the cost ?About �74. What’s the format ? Just a show ?Er lots of Lotus cars to look at, lots of Lotus cars to buy, lots of people trying to sell you Lotus things (QED, Motobuild, B&C, etc) 5. What time does it start/end10ish until 5.30 ish?

I think its �7.50 each ( and you pay EACH day ) if you turn up and pay, tickets in advance from Club Lotus were �6.50 and can be used both days.Best part of the show is the car park to be honest, but I guess if you bothered to turn up its worth a look inside.Come over and say hello at Donington services David, mines the Blue Elan, Jxxx CWF. I will be there on Saturday, but have to fight the g-f to get a “pass” for Sunday.

A few real beer drinkers are meeting at Knutsford, on Sunday at 8.30, so I guess we will arrive at around 10.00 am - we can meet you at the show if poss. ?Russ

bugger, would have loved to come to get to know some of you a bit better but unfortunately, donington is not just around the corner for me… siff-sniff…

Hi Kev,Both days

Thanks David.

Keep an eye out, he’ll be there 10:15-ish tomorrow.

Phil and Debs ( Orange Exige ) got in touch and say they will meet at Donington Services 10am Saturday. Look out for a few Elans in one corner of the car park.
