LOG 40 Announced, Headed West!

I'm happy to say that LOG 40 is headed west next year. I hope to finally meet many of you on the forums. It looks like it is going to be an amazing one since Geely actually owns a a racetrack here and Lotus should have a couple new cars to show off.

Here is the video of the presentation if anyone is interested:

Stay tuned as there will be more to come as we work out the details!!

You will also be able to see updated information as it gets added to the Lotus Ltd. sites.

Have dates been announced yet? I went to the U and would love to have an excuse to come out to SLC. The difficulty is my kids start school in mid-August so I am selfishly hoping this is in Early August.

The main part of Log40 will take place on 9/18 to 9/21 2020, with a possible optional 3 day rally around Utah after that. Hopefully we will see you here. September weather in Utah is perfect for outdoor activities!

The US census folks are pretty generous with West- But we're all easterners in Anchorage.

Utah is close enough, I'll go even if I have to Tow...

Salt lake city UT is a good location. Endless good roads to drive and 80mph speed limit

Was really hoping it would be the weekend following Monterey Car Week again, since I'm thinking of shipping my car out west for that, and then LOG40 would have made for a nice drive home.

Did someone say Monument Valley and Esprit?

Iíve been planning my return for years since 2014. I wanna use my drone and all sorts of video gear to improve on my original Esprit outing to Monument Valley.

Cripes. I hope I can make this trip.

So here is a video I created from footage taken while on a Southern Utah road trip with a fellow Lotus Esprit owner (#33 investors edition). Just a small sample of the roads available to attendees of Log40 next September.
