SA November Lotus Run

Well the sun came out for our November run, and so did all the cars. The November run was definitely our biggest turnup for a long time.

Red was definitely the flavour of the month, with Ardent Red outnumbering all the other cars combined!!  We had two Lotus 7s arrive, including one that had been ‘lost’ for a number of years, to be bookended by an Elise S with only 4k on the clock. Given the numbers, we headed south once again towards Strathalbyn and Jack’s Café, via the sweeping Paris Creek road.

The line of cars headed down the valley road was a sight to behold.

By the time you read this, we’ll have had our Christmas Run.  This year we’re heading out to Richard Knight’s place at Younghusband overlooking the Murray River.  If the weather holds, we’re expecting a big turnout.

The first monthly run for 2018 will be Sunday January 7th.  As usual, we’ll assemble at the Sikh Centre carpark by 9:00am for a chat before heading off for a drive and coffee.

All British Day  11th February 2018

Sunday February 11th is the big day for owners of British vehicles, with the 34th All British Day at Echunga in the Adelaide Hills.  If you’re reading this and haven’t entered, I’m afraid that you’re too late as entries closed in November.

The collection of Lotus is always a highlight and we attract plenty of attention.  If you didn’t remember to enter you can still come up and take a look at the hundreds of cars on display, peruse the specialist vendors, or just come and have a discussion on Lotus in general.

Cheers and have a very Lotus Christmas!
