Introduction to L.A.D.S.

Lancashire And District Sevens (L.A.D.S.) are the North West of England area of the Lotus 7 Club. We meet formally on the first Wednesday of each month and attend various car shows and Lotus 7 Club events and organise various trips and weekends away. These have included trips to museums, breweries, distilleries, race teams etc. We've also organised tours of Northern Spain, Scotland, Wales and France and we normally visit Le Mans to watch the 24 hour race or the Le Mans Classic. Some members take part in the Lotus 7 Club Sprint Championship and a number take part in track days at various circuits including local ones such as Oulton Park and Angelsey. We also hire Curborough Sprint Course a couple of times each year for our members to explore their cars limits. 

Our members are a varied bunch including young and old and partners are encouraged to get involved. Virtually all models of 7 are represented in our membership from the more powerful track oriented cars to tourers. Most members undertake servicing and repairs of their own cars and we try to assist new owners by providing good advice and practical help. If you are in the area why not come along to one of our meetings to find out more – we’re really quite a friendly bunch.
