Last Saturday  10th Sept in excess of 300 people attended Malcolm Ricketts'  annual opening of his Lotus workshop  to all the Lotus clubs and enthusiasts of the marque . Free to attend  a whole field was fitted with  visitors cars as well -   from midday to 5.00pm. As always Malcolm had arranged some unusual , rare and  or one off cars to be on display. The proceeds of the sale of food and drinks all afternoon ensured several thousand pounds was raised and donated  to the splendid work of St Isabel's Hospice  in Welwyn Garden City. Malcolm has kept this  very popular event going for a decade or more. Many thanks to Jill and Malcolm and to all who support it from right around the country .

 

Here is a short 5 minute film that will give you a flavour of proceedings  and the many and varied Lotus  cars on display   - Maybe some of you were there ?      https://youtu.be/G_Jc3LKiY8s

Normally a Saturday in August  details get circulated to all the Lotus clubs and on the Historic Lotus Register Facebook page . I will try to remember to give it an advanced airing here next year  - it gets bigger every year . Always good to attend and free.305642011-160173083333547-32247317163992

IMO the Type 14 is still one of the best looking cars of all time.
