Lotus In The Peak

Hangar 111 is pleased to be again supporting the Lotus In The Peak event in 2015.

This event is organised by the Midland Lotus Owners Club, and takes place on the weekend of 11th and 12th of July. A pre-event gathering at a local hostelry on the Saturday evening is followed by an early morning run to Chatsworth Park, taking in the spectacular scenery on some of the Peak Districts finest roads. Around 200 Lotus cars are expected to fill the dedicated parking area in front of the impressive Chatsworth House, where there are plenty of activities to keep all entertained in and around the park.

As a taster, MLOC have produced this great video of last years event.

Not Only Lotus

Whilst the majority of visitors to Hangar 111 are Lotus, for servicing, repairs, and upgrades, we also get involved with various other sports and performance cars.

This Caterham came to us in need of a little TLC, to get her all ready and raring to enjoy for the summer – it’s owner thought it wasn’t delivering as much as it used to. First job was to get it up and running, then we diagnosed and rectified a number of little issues with the engine likely to have caused some degradation in the performance. A thorough service and inspection to the manufacturers schedule, and a road test identified a few more niggles, easily fixed at our workshop. Finally, a quick check and adjust on our state-of-the-art alignment rig, and she was ready to go.

An email the following week from the owner summed it up quite well… “Early morning start, got really back in tune with the car and noticed much better feel from steering and grip!  Also the engine is zinging as well as it ever has. Felt confident enough to take it on track at Rockingham and albeit not quite as fast on the banked parts as the more powerful cars my friends have, I was up with the pace. The car was brilliant all day, thanks again.”

P1!

A great result for James Little, Andrew Bentley, and the Hangar 111 Racing team at Donington Park today – first place for the Elise Cup R in Lotus Cup UK!

With a sudden downpour on the grid giving a wet start to the race, James drove brilliantly (on dry tyres!), despite a spin which dropped him a couple of positions. At the perfectly timed mandatory pit stop around half distance, James had driven back up into 3rd place, when the driver change put Andrew into the car. Andrew then went about setting some impressive lap times as the track dried, to catch and pass the leader just a few laps from the chequered flag.

A great team performance got us the top step of the podium – congratulations to James and Andrew on an excellent drive in tricky conditions, with the Cup R delivering some seriously impressive lap times in all conditions.

JRZ Back To Back

Our favourite JRZ single adjustable dampers were recently tested back-to-back with a rival product, achieving 0.5 second faster lap time around Snetterton 300.  Road performance is equally impressive with much improved ride and handling quality, backed up with great durability.
