    Default 35th annual Lotus Owners Gathering - Colorado Springs

    LOG35 will be based in Colorado Springs August 20 - 24, 2015. This is the second time Lotus Colorado (LOCO) has hosted this national event. All Se7en type cars are welcome to join in the fun.

    We've had this discussion elsewhere on this forum and I could not find it but let me assure you that ANY Se7en variant is welcomed with open arms. Yes, there might be a few hard core Lotus owners that turn up their nose at any not real Lotus 7 but the majority of the people are welcoming and pleasant to deal with.

    Details are at: http://www.log35.com/

    One of the events will be a run up Pikes Peak. The LOG35 cars will be the first ones up the mountain on Sunday morning. They understand we will may not be observing the speed limits but asked to have someone reasonably sane leading the pack. This person will be a professional racer in an Exige, you figure it out.

    Latest news:

    LOG 35 Honored Guest - Bobby Unser

    The LOG 35 committee is proud to announce that our special guest speaker for the Saturday night banquet will be Bobby Unser. A veteran of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, Bobby became known as the "King of the Mountain."

    He won the sports car division in a Lotus 23 way back in 1964 and the record he set in that win has never been broken. It has stood for over fifty years.

    That little Lotus 23 cast a shadow almost as big as the Mountain. Come hear Bobby tell all about this car and other adventures at the Saturday night banquet at LOG 35, August 22, 2015. If you have never heard Bobby speak, be prepared for a frank, blunt and colorful remembrance of what it was like on the mountain. We promise: you will enjoy his remarks!

    Damn I am out of the country when this happens! This is one LOG I would consider attending as I believe Skip when he says it would be inclusive. Skip's club welcomed me with open arms when I gave my then-new CSR a shakedown run one fine weekend day along one of their spectacular canyon routes. I can guarantee the drives will be "spirited".


    Skip - There is a good chance I will be seeing you sometime this year pre-LOG and catching up for a beer and a burger. One of my race cars is at a restoration place in the Denver area and I plan to stop in at least once. I probably should also give it a track shake down run at a top local track before it heads east!

    "One of" your race cars? Inquiring minds need to know which one? The Mustang is done, right? Is this an Aussie import?

    Mike - think Batmobile of the IMSA kind. Yes it is an Aussie import of a Euro car. You will see it at NJMP as it will be finished then (he says hopefully).

    And now back to Skip's original post of LOG 35 in Colorado in 2015

    Mailed the registration form today for wifey & I. I'll be doing the autocross (first time...ever) and track day (first time w/Stalker). It feels odd to be registering before I've ever started the Stalker engine, but I guess that's the way it goes sometimes.

    We'll attempt to meet up with the British Speed caravan as it heads by north of DFW.

    Planning on driving the car vs trailering, but again, that's the 'plan' without ever actually having driven it The next 3 months should be interesting leading up to it.

    Thanks for registering toedrag, I'm looking forward to meeting you at the event.

    It looking to be a truly great event. The event hotel is completely booked except for the higher priced suites. Over 700 room days booked so far. We were told that it would be a good idea to go ahead and get on the waiting list for the cheaper rooms as there is usually a number of cancellations. There is an alternate hotel in the works, check the log35.com website for more info.

    To avoid the late registration fee, your mailed entry must be postmarked by tomorrow, May 29th.

    Peter Egan was planned to be one of the guest speakers however he has informed us he is undergoing a lengthy treatment for Hep C continuing through the event and cannot attend.

    I emailed Lotus Club Ltd HQ to ask about a Tech Inspection sheet for the Track day, and have yet to receive a response. Does anyone have details on what's required for the Track Day?
