As we discussed at the last gathering, we plan to go to a winery on Sunday, June 23rd.

A winery we have been to in the past that has a great selection of beer, wine and food is called Quattro Goombas:



Quattrogoombas.com



It’s located a few miles past the intersection of route 15 and Route 50 in Virginia. They have a great selection of beer and wine; an incredible venue, and just a great place to gather. It has a tendency to get crowded on the weekend so we will meet at the Blue Iguana parking lot at Fair Lakes Sunday, June 23 at 11:15, then drive to the winery. The address of the Blue Iguana is - 12727 Shoppes Ln, Fairfax, VA



Please bring family or friends; you do not have to have a running Lotus car to go. In fact, you can drive whatever you want. This is a great opportunity for us to get together and hang out on what we hope is a beautiful weekend.



There is an opportunity for a scenic drive afterwards through historic Middleburg and out to The Plains Virginia.



Please RSVP if you can:

What an event, held by Golden Gate Lotus - OVER 20 Emiras! (I'll bet the Eletre didn't make it under the Lotus Limbo bar!)

Thanks to my friend, Kiyoshi Hamai, for posting this on Facebook. (Don't we all wish we had a Lotus repair facility like the one they show?)

A decent turnout today!  Bob Scates Europa and my Seven were there to represent Lotus.  We also had an old Land Rover there.  Dino drove his massive-HP Shelby truck, and Pete's Spyder replica was there, as well!

Lotus Reveals Record-Breaking Order Books for Eletre & Emira by ksm

Lotus reveals record-breaking order books for Eletre and Emira

17,000 orders for the SUV and sports car placed worldwide as the company looks to bounce back from heavy losses

Lotus has confirmed that the first half of 2023 has been a record-breaker for sales, with around 17,000 orders placed for the new Eletre SUV and the Emira sports car.

Okay, so the eagle-eyed among you will point out that we already knew this, but the positive noises are worth hearing all the same.

The Emira was launched in 2022 and 2,200 examples have been built in the UK this year, a 381 per cent increase. Crikey, no wonder order books are full for the next two years.

And deliveries of the Eletre began in China at the end of March, with Lotus’ first electric car (we’re still waiting on the Evija, harumph) expected to arrive in Europe in a few weeks’ time.
