Hi All,

 

Who can I pass someones contact details onto for a possible upcoming events? Is there an admin or someone who pulls together events? (Newbie question - haven't got a scoobie!)

 

I've spoken to 'Magnitude Events Lts' (check them out on facebook / twitter etc) after taking part in a track day they ran at the Lotus factory test track a few weeks back and they're looking for more owners clubs to join next time out - last time there was members of the Lotus owners club, TVR and MX-5's.

 

They run track sessions at the Lotus facility up here in Norfolk, and other tracks I believe. 

 

If someone could let me know who i'd have to pass these details onto then hopefully we could get something organised! 

 

Failing that I could be in contact and try and sort something... But i'm about as much use as a chocolate tea pot when it comes to organizing events. 'cant organize p*ss up in a brewery' comes to mind, which is ironic for someone who's parents own a pub.

 

Cheers,

 

Dan

No, the full track is quite technical and really puts the car and driver through their paces. As you'd expect really. I enjoyed it. Gives you an opportunity to get the suspension nicely balanced if it's not already. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

The guy has mentioned there's an event in October that we'd be able to get space on - if we got numbers to him reasonably quickly.

 

If someone wanted to talk to Alex (MD at Magnitude Events) regarding organising something for 2017 - or even the event in October. Drop him an email.

 

info@magnitude-events.co.uk

 

Say Dan (me) has passed on is info.

 

Cheers.
