When does Hethel production start back up?

Gang,

As I understand it, Lotus closes down for approximately two weeks over the Christmas/New Year's holidays. Does anyone know when they restart production? This week? Thanks in advance.

Chris

I really miss my 2-3 weeks off during Xmas and 3 weeks summer vacation and ...

I am sure they will all filter back as soon as they sober up

Just got off the phone with Doug at Newport European and my car has a January build date also. I wonder about that old axiom though... "Never buy a car built on a Monday, Friday or after a Holiday." I'm guessing it won't matter much (I hope!)

FWIW ChrisStarrUSA, Doug told me that I should have a VIN at the end of the month. I guess at that point the car becomes "real."
