Post by Phil S1 »

We are excited to announce that next year’s event will take place from 8th - 10th July 2022 and will return to a very special grand venue - none other than the significant historic landscape of Chatsworth.

As one of the premier events on the Lotus calendar, the organisers are firmly focussed on making it the biggest and best yet, to mark the 10th Anniversary since the event first took place at Chatsworth in 2012.

Please follow us to stay informed and share this post with your fellow Lotus enthusiasts, to help us make this unique event a very special one to remember.

Stay tuned!

Making a weekend of it is the ultimate way to enjoy your Lotus in the stunning scenery of the Peak District. With this in mind, the team are pleased to announce another great new venue for next year's 10th Anniversary Lotus in the Peak, taking place from Friday 8th - Sunday 10th July 2022.

Oakhill, a stunning Georgian Hotel in historic Cromford, have agreed to host our traditional and very enjoyable Friday night BBQ, as well as providing accommodation options for the weekend. They have 10 spacious Kingsize or Double rooms and 4 luxurious suites, and all the rooms are currently being refurbished in readiness for the finest Lotus event of 2022 ! Camping is also available on site, including electric options.

Further information can be found on the Oakhill website, www.oakhillcromford.co.uk. Please note that bookings must be made by telephone, stating that the reservation is for the Lotus in the Peak event.

Prices may increase next year, but Oakhill have agreed to honour current prices if we book now. Early booking is therefore advised. Alternative accommodation is also available in Cromford, Matlock Bath and Wirksworth.

Please stay tuned and follow us for further news and updates for what promises to be the very best Lotus in the Peak event yet :D

Places on the early morning runs are getting very near to capacity now, especially the Matlock Bath route so to avoid disappointment please book your places now and please also don't forget your raffle tickets in aid of Rainbows Hospice for Children and young people. Thank you.

Even once the run places are full you will still of course be able to book to arrive direct to Chatsworth.

Hi Everyone, we have a good number of first timers booked on to Lotus in the Peak this year and have had one or two query not having received tickets.

To clarify: there are no printed tickets for LitP. Everyone that has booked will receive full instructions digitally by email in the week before the event. For those booked on a run these instructions will include your group number and leader. There will also be a 'run signing on form' - It is important that this form is printed off, signed and handed to your assigned leader on arrival at your start point. This is a legal requirement for our MSUK event approval. No form no run! So please take care to bring it with you to the start point.

Please keep an eye on your inbox and be sure to check your spam mail just in case!

Additionally - All those booked onto the 'Classic Run' please note there has been a change of run start start point and it will now be Calton Lees Car Park Chatsworth, off the A6012 DE4 2NX. (NOT HASSOP STATION CAFE).

Thanks everyone - We're all looking forward to a great day, we hope you are too! :)

The LitP Team

Here's two more prizes to tell you about.

Firstly a new sponsor for LitP - Steve Gill of Maverick Coatings Limited (based near Burton on Trent) has offered us a fabulous prize that will feature in our charity auction. He is offering to re-coat the auction winner's Lotus wheels up to the value of £250 (more than sufficient to do any wheels of 19 inches or less). So bring your wallets and be ready to bid on the day!

What a great prize! Thank you Steve. Here's a link to Steve's Facebook page

Secondly, another great raffle prize from somebody who needs no introduction - our very good friends at https://www.eliseparts.com/
A superb lightweight racing trolley jack!

We're on the final countdown now and have another two more prizes to tell you all about!

Paul Golding of Lotus on Track has yet again been most generous in donating TWO track days, one at Donington Park, the other on the Silverstone GP circuit. Thanks Paul! :thumbsup:

These will feature in our pre-lunch charity auction so dust off those wallets ready :)

In our opinion Lotus on Track are the best organised track days so if you're thinking about doing one then Lotus on Track is the way to go.
