Miscellaneous: (TIE) Steve Matthews' Lotus Omega and Ross Sorci's 1976 Lotus Eclat.
Sevens: Gavin Slade's 2004 Caterham 1.8.
A special award goes to Ivy Orecchio. Ivy and her husband, Schuyler, bought an Elise and joined the club in May of 2016. They attended several club events, including previous Get Your Lotus Out events. We were sad when Schuyler, an Army Captain, was transferred to San Antonio. During their time there, Ivy has completed her second master's degree. She decided she wanted to learn to drive a stick - so she did. After I sent the request for GYLO entries, Schuyler sent a couple of pictures, but the 'important' one he sent was his Chrome Orange Elise, with its new owner - Ivy! Congratulations, Ivy!
Since we are all treading new ground in the era of COVID-19, we were not sure what to expect of a 'virtual' Get Your Lotus Out.
We needn't have worried - we had a better-than-ever turnout of cars: 60 cars. (Previous high-count in a physical GYLO was mid-30's.)
The new category of Memorabilia is something we may well do at future physical (we hope!) GYLOs. Thanks to everyone who participated.
We had great variety. You'd expect a ton of the biggest-selling vehicle ever sold by Lotus, the Elise. We had 9.
What you would not expect is the 14 Esprits we had entered.
You'd also not expect to see an Omega, a 2-Eleven, a Lotus 30, a Mark 9, a 340R, an Elise S1 and an Eclat! Very cool!
We had, I think, a total of 14 people on our Zoom teleconference awards call, and attendees got first look at the winners.
Prizes: We will let winners know how they can get their prizes; we will be having some type of events thru the rest of the year,
and will get people together with their prizes.
Please let us know what you liked, and didn't like about this, and other events. Also, we are taking suggestions for future events.
Mark Franke wants to do a modest, social-distanced drive sometime in June of early July.
Please check in to this website regularly, and please post here. You can post pictures, you can announce events, you can buy & sell Lotus cars and parts, and you can ask for technical advice. (Just don't believe technical advice from Bob.)
