Well that's 2014 out of the way so two years to organise - any ideas of a program and who to get in touch with for access etc, experince from previous would help I understand we may need to piggy back on to another larger club as we are too small a group to sort full club support but happy to be corrected

Been at classic le mans this year with the eleven, was great,
will be there in 2016 for sure. If we can do something as a group
would be nice.

I'm still keen to go in 16. As I pointed out at the start of the thread, it'll be the 60th anniversary of Team Lotus winning it's class with the Eleven. I wonder if Club Lotus would allow us to piggyback with them? I'm usually more than happy to organise (AKA control freak) but seem to have no spare time. If someone else has the gumption (you still volunteering M400too?) then count me in.

I noticed previously that a travel car tour company has been used is this best option or can it be sorted easily between us there are advantages to both one no worries all done for you- possibly little flexibility - second we can do exactly what we want may get camping/ accomplish with a club- my site on FB is getting likes from westie owners in Belgium and France so may get to join up also local knowledge - I may if no one objects start something on FB for le man classic 2016 to improve visibility - feed back on this would be appreciated

The more elevens we can muster in a muddy French field, the merrier :D .

Ps: In a case of flagrant thread drift, is anyone going to the Goodwood Revival this month? My car will be in the Revival Car Show (aka car park) on Sunday. Hoping for a slightly dryer day than last year :shock:

My car's still in bits, the clock is ticking and the wheels are somewhat off the cart at the moment. Looking to complete the engine reinstallation by the end of the month. So, no Revival for me, sadly.
