Club Lotus Show Update


Update from the Lotus Show at the Malverns!

The drive was a little longer than usual, but the ash cloud from Iceland kept the roads (and airports) fairly clear for a good run through.

– New venue is very good – thanks to Alan at Club Lotus for choosing a good venue over the sadly unavailable Donington.
– New Elise looks great – image attached.
– Our stand also looking good (well in our opinion!).
– Lovely Type 72 edition Exige from Williams of Bristol.
– Prototype Chargecooler cover not quite as good as we would like but show-worthy (fingers crossed!)
– After some late tweaks, our exhaust display stands can finally accomodate our new signature series exhaust systems.

The sun is out and the car parks are packed. Far busier than any previous Donington event Saturday.

And finally – it is so nice to see this event so well subscribed to by all the enthusiastic folks (traders and public). The international attendance is also heart warming. We will always support the event for the simple reason that it’s the only place you will find a truly complete Lotus experience – Classic, Modern, Road, Race and vintage – It’s all here. Bring your kids, friends and family and show them the entertaining history of the Lotus marque.

Long live Lotus!!

We hope to see you at the show!

Regards,
Greg Lock

Online Store 2.0 Now Live!

After several years developing the workshops and services, our web store has been in need of a make-over. Dealing with 100s of products at our workshops whilst serving our customers needs has left some of our most popular products absent from our web store – this is obviously a problem – but not any more! We have invested heavily into developing a new online store that will not only feature our entire product range, but many new products from top names with whom we have created exclusive relationships. With 128bit SSL encryption and Sagepay secure credit card ordering, you can rest assured that your card details are safe.

Plus – it is officially iPhone Friendly! Yes – you can browse our store and login securely to place orders using your iPhone! Other mobile devices will soon be compatible so you can always be in easy reach of the online store.

Like all new web sites, there may be the odd bit of teething trouble, so please contact us if you find you have problems accessing it or placing orders.

Existing user accounts have been transferred over and are ready to use.   Registered users will receive an email with instructions for logging into your account.

Hangar 111 & Turbo Technics

Hangar 111 are pleased to announce our engagement with Turbo Technics to become the official service centre for Turbo Technics TT190 and TT230 supercharger installations.  Alongside providing a full maintenance and repair service for the cars, we will also stock replacement and upgraded parts including belts, pulleys, injectors and ECU configurations for the K-Series supercharger kits for the Elise and Exige S1, 340R and Elise S2.

Using many of the carefully designed components from the TT kits and our in-depth knowledge of supercharging the Toyota engined Lotus models, we now have the basis for our own development of a new breed of supercharger kit for all K-Series Elise and Exige.  This is planned for later this year.  The new kit will deliver road-going refinement and durability combined with options to allow more aggressive use on the race track.

If you are looking to supercharge your K-Series Elise, Exige or 340R or you already have a TT190 or 230 that requires an update to our specification, please contact us.

O2 Sensor Simulator

 To remove that annoying MIL light when using a track day decat or low-cpi sports cat on any car (including Toyota 2ZZ vehicles), we have developed an easy-to-install and configure O2 Sensor Simulator.  This neat little device sits between the ECU and the Post-Cat O2 sensor and simulates the voltage and frequency required to let the ECU know that everything is okay.
