This event has been postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic

Looking forward to next year already? Well here’s a date for your calendar… We’re pleased to announce that the Lotus Drivers Club will be returning to the idyllic Wye Valley and Forest of Dean for a weekend driving adventure, including a display at the Coleford Carnival of Transport.

Taking place over the Bank Holiday weekend from Saturday 11 – Monday 13 April 2020, the weekend will provide an opportunity for members to discover the area whilst relaxing in the evening at a historic, unmissable hotel. The Club has attended the established Coleford Carnival of Transport on many occasions and we’re excited to be returning. The show, now in its 23rd year, takes place on the streets of Coleford in the heart of the beautiful Forest of Dean on Easter Monday.

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 or with a little help from one of the Clubs friendly volunteers.
