Prom night in style

Date:      June 2017        
Event:     Prom night, NYLOC style  
Location:  Grand hotel, Bradford

Forget the stretched Limo, arrive in style in a convoy of 10 Lotus cars. The city centre resonated with the sound of sports exhausts and shoppers looked on as the guys pulled up outside the hotel.

Luckily there was enough space on the road before the Limo's and coaches arrived.

Hethel Track Day

Date:      July 2017        
Track:     Lotus Test Track  
Location:  Hethel, Norfolk
Level:     Exclusive use, open pit lane, all levels

Home of Lotus Cars with a chance to go on their superb track to test out our driving skills. A tour of the factory was included which shows how the cars are built by craftsmen, not a robot in site.

Sorry, no pictures of the track is allowed.

No pictures of the Hethel track allowed, so next best thing

GYG Karting (wet)

Date: March 2017 
Event: NYLOC'ers Go-Karting Challenge 
Location: GYG Karting near Corwen, Wales

It doesn’t have to be dry weather to have some fun as we proved on this event. Go Karting hones those driving skills in preparation for Track Days, as well as being great fun!

The usual suspects line up, trying not to look too competitive.

 

Xmas Run Out

Mileage: 180 miles approx 
Time: 6 hours 
Route: Start off at Easingwold then a mystery tour around North Yorkshire with a series of challenges.

Annual Xmas Run Out, no snow! One of our members organisers this annual run out over the festive period. So, providing the weather is reasonable there is a good turn out.

Parked up for a Bacon sarnie and a hot cup of tea.
