Christmas Acitivity

A busy time was had prior to Christmas, Firstly I finished the axle re-installation on the DHC, fitted the brakes, then after bleeding, took for a long test drive. Great to get back in the car after the prolonged cold spell, noticed a big improvement in drive train noise levels, further checks under the car also found a badly perished gearbox mounting, so a new one was ordered and fitted. Prop also has a bit of play, so that needs attention too. Having racked up the miles in the last 2 years as a near daily driver I am beginning to pay for all the hard work the car has done.

Perished Mounting and New Mounting.

After this Gill and I attended a rather flash party at my current employers, Lotus Cars, They pulled out all the stops, massive marquees erected, free champagne, and a lavish meal for around 1500 employees, dancing to a fantatastic group, more free drink, and free gifts of an exlusive model of the new Esprit, and handouts of promotional material, tee shirts, etc from the Paris Motor Show. The CEO unvieled the Lotus Renault F1 team colours, also on show was the line up of the 5 new proposed cars.

Lotus Elan.

Lotus Esprit.

Exiting times at Lotus, hope they get round to making them all, although I think they won't all be UK made.

Following this we had another lavish meal, The Club Triumph Norfolk Area Christmas meal, at Diss Golf Club, I think there was about 25 of us there, everyone enjoyed this, with silly balloons and other fun items to keep amusment levels high and an ongoing music quiz as the evening progressed.

Table set for revellers. Heres to another good year for the Club.
