Quokka Talk for July 2016

Club Lotus All Fibreglass Run

Catch up on all the Lotus news in Western Australia thanks to Eddie Lankhorst’s latest edition of Quokka Talk, for July, 2016.

Since we last caught up we have enjoyed early morning runs to York and the Western Australia Racing Museum. Both were well attended and included some new Lotus owners. We welcome to Steve Pretzel and his Orange S2 Elise SC which was rescued from country Victoria, and Mike and Ellie with their new Red S3 Elise S.

It is always difficult to find new and exciting EMR routes and locations and I envy the eastern states, who enjoy a vast selection of roads and locations compared to WA. But I think we have such a fabulous core group of enthusiasts that it doesn’t really matter where we end up we will always have fun enjoying our cars and the company of like minded people.

We were saddened by the recent news that the RAC track, which is beside the airport, industrial estate and a freight railway, was ordered by the Government to cease motor sport at the track due to noise complaints!!! As such our last round of our championship was cancelled and the future is as yet unknown.  I certainly hope that a solution is quickly found for the sake of motor sport in Perth, as well as driver education and related activities.
