Dear Lotus 7 Club Member

Hopefully everyone has had the chance to get out and enjoy the fantastic weather we’ve been having recently. We wanted to take this opportunity to highlight a number of forthcoming Club-organised events you might want to consider attending. We hope to see you at one or more of these and recommend that if you are thinking of participating, you act promptly to be sure of securing places before they are all taken.

Club Trackdays

Oulton Park - Tuesday 3rd July

We still have around six places left at our trackday that is taking place at Oulton Park, one of the Club’s long-standing and favourite track venues. Located in Cheshire and easily accessible from the M6 motorway, Oulton Park is simply a terrific circuit for Sevens.  We are offering places in our Club-exclusive sessions that will run for 20 minutes every hour throughout the day at a cost of £229 for a car and main driver, inclusive of free instruction.  As usual, we will be arranging a pre-event social and the ESV will be in attendance to reinforce our much-enjoyed Club atmosphere.

Further details including an online booking form are available on the Club’s website, linked here: https://www.lotus7.club/whats-on/oulton-park-track-day-provisional or call the Club office on 01873 777303.

Castle Combe – Tuesday 24th July

You may have missed news of our planned return to Castle Combe circuit – our seventh Club trackday this year – that is scheduled for Tuesday 24th July. Combe, located in beautiful Wiltshire countryside, provides a mix of high-speed sections with plenty of technical challenge – perfect for a day on track in your Seven!

We will be starting in Sessions and moving to OPL, so the day is suited to drivers at all ability levels. Free instruction is included, the ESV will be present and there will be a pre-event social gathering. We’re also delighted that this Club-exclusive day will also enjoy support from Jon Vicker and his team at Millwood Motor Company, the area’s popular and highly regarded Caterham sales and servicing specialist.
