The final gathering of the year is
the Annual Dinner where the club converts an
ordinary-looking hotel function room into a Lotus
shrine! Not only do members organise Lotus-related
exhibitions but we always have three Lotus cars on
display in the actual dining room.
This year we had a
Lotus Seven, a Lotus 23 and a Lotus Eleven. Each table
also had to build a model Grand Prix car then enter it
for the ‘concours’ before ‘racing’ it – total disaster,
but great fun! Ernie Unger led a pre-dinner Lotus
discussion group while Andy Shepherd ran some stunning
in-car footage showing a race at Castle Combe.
and trophies were awarded after the meal then it was
time for socialising and reminiscing about the year.
