Saturday 27 April – Saturday 4 May 2019

In May of 2009 club members embarked on a trip to visit the German village of Söhlde to celebrate the grand opening of an English style Art Cafe, named The Barn, by member and proud Lotus Elise S1 owner, Britta Poloczek. The celebration hosted around 300 guests and as well as members cars also included a Lotus Super Seven, Caterham, Morgan Plus 8 and a handful of Minis alongside bikes such as a Triumph, Norton, BSA, Royal Enfield, Harley Davidson and more.

In 2019 the club is planning a return visit to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Kunstcafé The Barn. Sailing will be overnight from the port of Harwich on the evening of Saturday 27 April, docking early Sunday morning at the Hook of Holland. A nights accommodation will be planned for Sunday before arriving in Söhlde for 3 nights, where local accommodation has been arranged. Whilst staying in Söhlde there’ll be plenty of opportunity to explore and enjoy the local area such as the medieval town of Goslar situated in the Harz Mountains and not forgetting the anniversary celebration itself on Wednesday 1 May, which is not to be missed!

After leaving Söhlde another nights accommodation will be arranged for Thursday before returning to Harwich from the Hook of Holland on an overnight sailing on the evening of Friday 3 May.

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.

We look forward to sharing this trip with you and hope that you can join us. To find out more or to register your interest in joining this trip please email driving@lotusdriversclub.org.uk. Limited places are available.
