Further LitP details, taken from our MLOC events page...

LitP 2017 is now confirmed for Sunday 9th July 2017, with the main event on the lawns in front of Kedleston Hall. The event is having a very similar format to previous years with just a change of location.

If you‘ve not been to or heard of Kedleston Hall, then it is an extremely grand country hall about 5 miles north west of Derby set in massive landscaped gardens which lead straight into the Derbyshire countryside.

The day will start with drives through the fantastic Derbyshire countryside and Peak district, with a stop for breakfast. Cars will be split up into smaller groups, each with a group leader, enabling people to choose the pace of journey.

The drive will then culminate with a procession through the main gates at Kedleston Hall, over the bridge and then parking on our own area of grass in front of the Hall. (You can come directly to Kedleston Hall from around 10:45am if you don’t want to take part in the drive).

As with previous years we will attempt to park all the cars in model categories around a central clear area for picnics. We will once again be offering the option of a catered picnic which can be purchased through the MLOC shop at the same time as the event tickets.

The popular car of the day competition and the raffle (with extensive lotus related prizes) will be held after lunch. We’ll have children’s activity packs with a colouring competition to help keep little ones entertained.

Central Lotus are once again the main event sponsor who will be displaying their race cars and the latest range of Lotus cars.

In the afternoon people can carry on chatting to new and old lotus friends or take advantage of a discounted rate of £5 per adult to tour the main house (National Trust members can enter for free) and anyone go on one of the walks around the grounds for free.

The event will be for sale in our online shop in the next few days.

We also intend to have a meet up on the Saturday night at a local pub, with the venue hopefully announced shortly.

Hi Phil,

I'm hoping to get down to this event in your old Type 49, it will nice to take it back down to its old stomping ground. I will have to do some grovelling on the home front as I am away to Croft, Spa and Zolder the previous week.

With a bit of luck we may have a few Scots make the journey down, and being July I'm sure the sun will be shining.

Cheers

Graham

It is well worth the trip, Graham. I went last year and really enjoyed it. This year it clashes with the Glamis show and Mrs J is taking her old mini so I'll be needed there............

Glad to hear you enjoyed our event last year Malcolm, sorry you can't make it this time.
I very much hope you'll be able to make the journey to see us Graham, especially if you'll be bringing my old 49 and some fellow Scots with you....fingers crossed for that :D

Once again, at LitP 2017 we will be having a competition for 'Car of The Day' as chosen by you. All attendees on the day will receive a voting slip which we kindly ask you to complete and hand in during the morning. There are no competition rules other than the car must be a Lotus, previous winners have been both classic and new, ranging from an Eleven to an Exige Sprint. There will be trophies for the top three cars, sponsored once again by PJS Sports Cars.

So, book your LitP tickets now and look out for the voting slip within the welcome pack you'll receive on the day :)

Only 2 weeks to go until the big day!

Anyone wishing to participate in one of the early morning runs should note they can ONLY do this by pre-booking a place via the MLOC store (don't forget to purchase breakfast(s) at the same time too if required). The same also applies for those wishing to order a pre-paid picnic; this is arranged by Kedleston themselves so we need to confirm numbers to them in advance. Thanks

Also please note the MLOC store will close on the Wednesday prior to the event - Wednesday 5th July so be sure not to miss out.

Anyone else is of course most welcome to arrive in their Lotus direct to Kedleston on the day and pay £10 on entry.

Hope to see you there :)

We are really excited to announce we will be joined this year by some fellow Lotus enthusiasts all the way from Belgium! We'd like to give a very warm welcome to members of the Belgian Elise drivers forum - BEND.BE who will be bringing 6 cars to our event as part of their UK tour, visiting the Caterham 60th Anniversary Festival at Donington and the Lotus factory. Their trip organiser - Xavier Bonhomme also kindly donated 2 of our raffle prize vouchers for Roadster-Covers and ViGi Leather so a special thank you to Xavier for that  :D

There's still time to book onto one of the runs, pre-order breakfasts and the catered picnic at Kedleston and reserve raffle tickets but the shop will be closing at 6:30pm on Wednesday 5th July.

After this date anyone else will of course be most welcome to arrive in their Lotus direct to Kedleston on the day and pay £10 per car on entry. Raffle tickets can be purchased on the day too.
