Our Club Racer had its first proper visit to The Doc this week. Air con service, fresh tyres, a couple of Lotus-esque niggles and a mini-valet.

All done, no nasty surprises, and a novel solution to the detached front grille

Ready on time and looking good.

Thank you Craig + team. | Coaching, training, consultancy

Just got my S1 back after more than 2 years away with Craig, who didn't moan once that I'd effectively abandoned it until I could get round to sorting it (work / family / finances / time / etc). Once given the nod though, the effort he and his boys put in to sorting everything was ridiculous, and the body shop too for all the front end work and painting (which Craig tells me was just awful, particularly getting the new splitter lined up and fitted to look "right").

There is no way he charged me what he should have and I'm extremely grateful for everything that was done FOC along the way - just imagine if he'd charged me for storing it!

End result is a simply phenomenal looking car now, I couldn't be happier to get it back :thumbsup
Best thing you can do now is put miles on it. Any car that has been off the road for so long will have issues that you won't find until you use it. Craig managed to bring Vicky back from the dead and I am forever grateful for it.
Totally agree mate, found a couple on the drive back up from Edinburgh to Aberdeen but a shakedown was inevitable and absolutely nothing major. Plus he already warned me that the new EP tuning gear cables might need an adjustment once they've been on for a while. Good excuse to go back down 8)

Overall, I'm delighted
S1 Elise 111s

Oh, forgot to update this. CMC managed to replace my brakes with less than a day notice and even bumped into a couple of issues and still got me home.

Big thanks to Monty for fitting me in when prepping the 350 Sport for sale. Even showed me how to refit the hardtop, without me having to figure it out!

All sorted very efficiently, and hugely appreciated.

Well Craig has gone and done it again, went to him with a problem and it is now fixed. Had a few random overheating moments over the last few months. Craig diagnosed it as a thermostat issue, fitted a PRT and a manual fan override switch and problem gone. Temperature is spot on. I can now spank Vicky harder than ever and her temperature stays within a few degrees.

Might have to re name her Tigger for a few months as one of the rear shocks has dropped most of its oil so it has been "bouncy bouncy fun fun fun fun" on the back roads. Craig has organised replacement shocks and new Lotus spec springs for the MOT in December. Top service as ever.
Well it moves... might as well make the most of it....
