My Eleven for sale

Dear All, with much sadness, I am putting my eleven up for sale. Much as I love it, I have a busy family life and other sportscars and consequently the XI never gets used. Rather than have it sit idle in my garage, I'd rather someone else enjoyed driving it. In 10 years I have amassed 3,000 miles in...

Re: Lotus Breadvan

Saw it there as well, in the paddocks, on the Saturday. Incredible-looking thing. Shame there weren't any other elevens there though; only 15s as far as I could see.

Great days racing on the Sat, but I wish I'd seen it in action in the TT.

Re: Register Interest in a Winged Sump

Hi Jon,

Only just seen this - yes please. I'd be interested, assuming the purpose is to gain a bit of ground clearance!

Re: Build diary

Totally agree. It's not a great choice of donor car really......a proper classic in its own right.

Re: 2013 Revival

Ditto; will be there Sat, but not sure at the moment whether I'll bring the XI, as the weather forecast doesn't look great at the moment.

Chichester's not too bad, but it's solid rain where i'll be setting out from.

Re: Who's going?

Indeed. It's been tuned since then, and the range is much better, but even so, I doubt anyone here gets much more than 120-140 miles out of a tank, even without lugging camping paraphanalia, and there can be fairly chunky gaps between filling stations in the countryside...Nothing that a bit of advan...

Re: Who's going?

I'd like to go again. I'll bring the XI, but remind myself to do the radiator modifications first. I've always done the obvious Calais -> Rouen -> Alencon -> Le Mans route in the past, both for LM and LMC, but to be honest, although it's quick and direct, it's not exactly the classic-friendly scenic...
