I have the privilege and honour of taking over Chicane from Simon, starting with the next issue. Simon has done an excellent job of running and managing what is undoubtably the best Lotus club magazine out there. I intend to follow in his footsteps whilst putting my own stamp on the magazine.

Some of you have already met me at a few of the events over the last couple of years. I hope to meet many more of you as the months and years go on. A little bit about me then. I own a 2001 Series 2 Elise. I work full time for the Ambulance Service so I can probably drive a 5 ton Mercedes Sprinter faster than I can my Elise most of the time. In my spare time I am a freelance motoring journalist, mainly working for online media. I’m hoping to bring some of this editorial experience to Chicane.

We are working with the printers on the next issue of Chicane already. We have started early as I am planning a fairly thorough refresh of the magazine. Nothing too drastic but hopefully you should see a fresh look and feel to what is already a great publication. To that end, I welcome any feedback, criticism or ideas for the magazine. Hopefully Chicane will continue to evolve over time.

Thanks, David
