Hi All - from Warrington

Post by Moggy. » Fri Jan 27, 2017 5:36 pm

First time Lotus owner here.......I just bought my S1 Elise a couple of weeks ago after many years of enviously looking on. It's a road car and will remain so. 40,000 miles and in fairly good nick, although it has the horrible shrieking fan which means I will take the clam off at some point.

I'm quite used to building and maintaining cars, especially mid-engined and glassfibre, as my other 'baby' is a Darrian GTR rally car.....although he's significantly faster than an Elise!

I live in Appleton, Warrington.

Cheers Rich

Hi moggy, you finally made it ;) welcome to norlog. Good choice with the s1 just hope you got the right colour :D being handy with the spanners is good thing you'll need to be, not because they always breakdown it's just such fun to pull them apart and put shiny things back on.

I use photbucket, upload your pictures to there then copy the image link and paste it into your post. It doesn't have to be photobucket there are others that's just the one I use.

Hi Rich

Welcome along, Ime also in Appleton Warrington. With the same colour car although it's currently wrapped and covered in stickers. Hopefully see you around and about. Mines currently hiding in the garage with its rear clam removed waiting for me to give it a refresh hopefully get round to it sooner rather than later.

Thanks all. I'm looking forward to fettling my car as well as going to some of the meets.

Mostly I'm into stage rallying (hence the darrian) and there are a couple of guys on my events who rally S1 Exiges (I think both started life as Elise's)......these both have Honda engines and do very well. If I didn't have the Darrian I would build a similar Exige although I would use my Duratec engine from the Darrian.

Hi Rich,

Welcome to Norlog.

There are a few of us actively involved in motorsport. I'm also a member of BLMCC and only gave up rallying in 2015 after selling my Corolla AE86.

Currently just doing the odd touring assembly and autosolo.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Thanks for all the replies! I've a couple of jobs to do (new tyres and front clam off for rad/fan and a few other bits) and then we will use the car and get to some of the meetings. One of the reasons we bought this car was for the social side.
