If we pre-register enough Lotus cars, we can make our own class (and not have to compete for a trophy with one-of-a-kind cars). Pre-registration is available via the above website, and it's $25 per vehicle if you sign up before September 30th, $35 thereafter.
We had a good showing of Lotus last year, and we had three trophies awarded:
1st - Greg Foster, '67 Lotus Elan S3 2nd - Jim Gordon, '66 Lotus 7 3rd - Bob Collum, '06 Caterham 7
I hope to see a good showing of NoVA Lotus folks out there - it's a very nice drive, a beautiful venue, and really amazing British cars...
The show this year will be held Sunday, October 9th, with the show field opening at 9:00AM, and award of trophies scheduled (but never ready by) 2:00PM. This is a very nice social event, with good food and some vendors of British car paraphernalia.

Last year, we had a pretty good turnout of NoVA Lotus folks at this event. I'm hoping even more show up this year. Great driving roads in the area, and a very nice venue for the show. If we pre-register enough Lotus (as we did last year), we have our own class for trophies. Register before September 30th for $25 per car entered ($35 after that, including at the gate). Anyone wanting to come out but not display their car, it's $5 for parking. They have had reasonably good food, and a couple of vendors of Brit Car Stuff. This is the last major British car show of the season.
This is a nice venue, with good driving roads there & back. We're hoping for another good turnout of NoVA Lotus cars & people, again this year. The event will be held Sunday, October 9th. Show field opens at 9:00AM.
If you like British vehicles, this is a good show!

A beautiful day in the country - the Hunt Country Classic. The last major British car show of the year, and one of my favorites. We had 5 beautiful Lotus there today. I'll cut to the chase - first place in our Lotus category was won by Jim Gordon's gorgeous Elan Coupe. (I got second place with my Seven.)
That third picture is for the Yows... Note that the statue of the Queen was in the rear deck of a Jaguar XJ6. Her hand was rotating back-and-forth - the 'Queen wave'. The dog's head bobbles. (Both statuettes are solar-powered.) I know Caleb and Jessica will like the Corgi.

More from today. A great day, great people, interesting cars. The Lotus people there today -
I entered my '06 Caterham 7, and got a second in class for the day. Dan Sheesley arrived first with his new-to-him 2011 Elise SC - very nice! Peter Innocenti brought his '94 Esprit S4. Jim Gordon won first place in class with his '69 Elan FHC. Tim Glahn drove his '67 Elan S3 DHC. Tom Neel took time off from building his new house, and visited with us, but did not have a Lotus with him.
Tim Glahn. Jim Gordon, accepting his first place trophy. I'm glad Lotus isn't the only British carmaker that overdoes the 'special edition' thing. I had never seen an MG Midget 'Sun Runner' before.
