Pembrokeshire Driving Adventure 2017 – Mike Stripe Memorial Event

Written by , Posted in News

Friday 28 April – Monday 1 May 2017

We’re excited to announce that the Lotus Drivers Club will be returning to Saundersfoot in 2017 for another Driving Adventure along the Pembrokeshire Coast.

The weekend will cover parts of Pembrokeshire from the seaside town of Tenby in the South, along the coast to Sprinkle Haven, St David’s, Fishguard and The Preseli Hills and Mountains in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. We aim to supply a mix of breathtaking driving roads and scenic view points.

Our Driving Adventures are not a race, time trial or guided tour. They are a navigational road trip where you will be given a start and finish point for each day, along with a suggested route. You will be expected to find your own way there with your own map, sat nav and/or carrier pigeon.

Find out more at http://ldclub.uk/pemb2017 or email driving@lotusdriversclub.org.uk

Ragley Hall 40th Celebration

Written by , Posted in News

RagleyPress

The Ragley Hall Classic Car Show has been running for over 20 years. Arthur and Barbara have been involved from the early days organising the clubs attendance at the prestigious event held at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire. They are responsible for the way in which the event has grown year on year. This year we hosted a record attendance of over 60 Lotus Cars at the show on Sunday and it was very fitting for Arthur and Barbara to be invited to cut the clubs 40th anniversary cake. As a celebration of the clubs 40th it was also decided to group the 1970’s cars around the centre of the club display. With the weather in our favour a good time was had by everyone, especially members furry companions who were out in force. (more…)

Epic Pembrokeshire Road Trip

Written by , Posted in News

Pembrokeshire

Thank you to everyone who came along, we had an amazing time! Great roads and a fantastic group of people! We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did ????

The Tenby Observer wrote:

The Lotus Drivers Club had an amazing and enjoyable time in Pembrokeshire on one of their recent ‘run to the coast’ road trips.

Using Saundersfoot Harbour as their base, they ventured along the Pembrokeshire coast and into the countryside, taking in some epic scenery on their way, including Manorbier, the Preseli Hills and St. Davids, to name just a few of the places they stopped off at.

There were 22 Lotus owners from around the United Kingdom who turned out for this epic road trip, including Newtown Lotus Cwmbran who made the journey to Saundersfoot in support with three of their newest Lotus models.

However, we have to agree that the award for the furthest travelled went to Britta and Roland who travelled over 800 miles from Hanover, Germany, in their Lotus Elise S1.

“Our weekend in Pembrokeshire has been a memorable success,” said Chris Jones from the Lotus Drivers Club. “It was great to see so many Lotus enthusiasts turning up to explore the Pembrokeshire coast, some for the very first time. Not only were we welcomed by some much relieved sunshine, but the Saundersfoot residents, visitors and businesses gave us just as warm a welcome.

“There has already been talk of returning next year, but for now we’re looking forward to our next adventure to Le Mans in July.”

The Lotus Drivers Club are indebted to David and Sian Boneham who did a great deal to organise the event, along with the Saundersfoot Harbour team who looked after them over the weekend.

A big thank you to the Gower Hotel, the Salvage Bar and the Old Chemist Inn for their accommodation and sustenance over the weekend, which was greatly appreciated.
