Esprit on TV Ad
Jacamo use Esprit
A LEW fan saw this advert for over weight menswear company 'Jacamo'. Towards the end theres a RED S3, which heI gathesr is supposed to be their getaway car. Getting in an out of an Esprit is not a speedy affair as any owner would understand, but for a pair overweight northern b--tards!!, would be a task in itself.
Have a look here:
Open the above link then click on TV advert bottom right of the web page. Note the front end bobs up and down, shocks need replacing. Not surprising if these blokes have been driving it !!
It's not Starsky & Hutch. We have have to thank atleast for not puting a white strip on the side :-).
Lotus Esprit SE Chassis Stolen
Watch out for it!
Just a quick note in case anyone is offered a second hand chassis in the near future. My chassis was stolen from outside my
workshop last week. From the description of the men & vehicle, we are assuming its for scrap but there is a possibility they will realise its for an Esprit as the shell was stored near by. The only distinguishing marks as the tube near the turbo has rusted through & need repair.
Email if you hear anything or are offered it for sale.
Issue 2 of the Lotus magazine is out now. See more at www.lotus-magazine.com

Club Lotus Show & Festival 2011
Donington Park August 13th & 14th
Club Lotus brought their 2011 show forward by one week from the date they recently announced. This is because the Elise Trophy race meeting at Donington was recently changed from 20/21 August to the weekend of 13/14 August and it therefore makes sense to similarly move the show forward one week.
So the ClubLotus 2011 Donington date is now August 13/14 with a dedicated Lotus trackday on Friday 12th. In addition to the Elise Trophy there will also be a race for the new Lotus Cup Europe . It should be a fantastic weekend and we're really looking forward to it.
