As most of you know Chris Shackle, one of our members, races in the Mk1 MR2 series. As usual we will be there in numbers (i hope) to support him at his home track.

I will speak to my contact at Snetterton to see if it would be possible to allocate us a club parking area as they did earlier in the year at the CSCC meet.

Having just looked at the Snetterton website, it appears that the MR2's are all part of the line up for the Lotus Festival ! I understand that this event is a bit of a corker, so lots going on.

Event page : HERE

If you fancy attending please let me know asap so I can get an idea of numbers ready to discuss with Terry at Snetterton.

Well finally getting back to normal after Le Man's.

Little suprised to see no additional interest in this event. So far only 3 - 4 cars. Oh well.

Glad you survived Le Man`s ok, hope the alcohol poisoning wasn`t to bad affraid

This event looks like a real packed weekend, have you any preference on which day to attend. Has Chris access to a provisional timetable as yet?

Who has shown an interest so far?

The alcohol poisoning is wearing off a little now ! Laughing

I'm guessing Sunday will be the day, but need to confirm with Chris as there is no timetable on MSV website as yet. I'll drop him an email.

List so far :


Ian V
Nigel Lewis
Paul & Sue
Sean Arnoup : Monaro (possible)

That looks like a full and exciting timetable on both days, but sunday does loom like the better day racewise.
Are you planning on meeting up prior to going into the circuit Ian?
Has anyone else put their name down to attend?

Yep Sunday is the day I think.

I'm aimed to be there about 9.00am to hopefully miss a lot of the crowds. Can meet up on the main entrance in just before the pay booths if you like. This seemed to work okay for the event earlier this year.

Still little or no additional interest in this event which does surprise me. List as before with Steve & Sue added, and Jim as a possible I think. Peter and Colin can't make it, but apart from that no response to emails from anyone else.

Right final role call time. Here's those who have contacted me to say they are attending :

Chris - complete with corporate hospitality or there's trouble !
Paul & Sue
Jim
Nigel & Sue
Steve & Sue (blimey, that's a lot of Sue's)
Sean Arnoup
Mike (possible)

Doesn't look like the club parking is going to come off this time as most has been given over to Lotus clubs (understandable), so unlikely that we will all get parked together unless we arrive together.

I have heard that the traffic can be a nightmare for this event, so I intend to arrive around 9.00am. I'm happy to meet up just before the pay booths as last time if anyone is about early. If not, might I suggest that we can meet up near the cafe about 10.30am, or for those with my number give me a call when you get parked. If anyone needs my number email me and I'll send it to you.

Weather's looking good so far, so everything is in place.

Think its a good idea to meet up early, so will aim to get there between 8-45 and 9-00am. At least then we can then hopefully park close together.

If anyone is in doubt as to what peoples names are, just call them Sue lol!

Yep, spotted that. Don't hear anything from him at all these days.

Shall I wait for you near the pay booths Sunday morning?

Well what a hot one yesterday. Even the sight of Nigel's legs didn't put the weather off ! lol!

As an event I don't think the Lotus Festival produced all it was made out to be for me. Was great to see some of the old Lotus F1 cars on track, but on the whole the event didn't deliver. The 'world record attempt' took up nearly 2 hours with no update of whether the record was achieved or not. The other races were okay, but there seemed a lot of 'down' time with nothing happening.

Not the best of days for Chris in the MR2's, but that's a story for him to tell.

Would I go again ? Probably not.

Here's a couple of photos.
