LotusPALS Rally Day 2018

LotusPALS Rally Day 2018

Have you ever wanted to go to a local Lotus club event, but the distance needed to travel back and forth was a longer duration than the actual event. Have you felt geographically isolated and unable to join in the fun of a group event. LotusPALS Rally Day aims to fix that while simultaneously promoting Lotus as a marque to the general public and encouraging owners to use their Lotus more frequently.

The idea is simple and straightforward. On June 23 (the closest Saturday to the Summer solstice) Lotus owners are encouraged to get their Lotus out and use it for the day. Go to a local attraction, eat out at a bistro, go for a scenic drive, run all of your errands, take the kid to soccer practice, even if you have to work use the Lotus as transport for the day. The point is to get as many Lotus out in public on the same day as possible. While you won’t need other Lotus to join you, it certainly would add to the fun to join up with your Lotus buddies for some socialization.

If you see another Lotus on the road, honk your horn, flash your lights, and make a spectacle of it!

Take pictures along the way and post them to social media and forum sites you are a member of.

The event is sponsored by LotusPALS. A special edition T Shirt will be available for those who wish to purchase. A portion of the sale price will go to support the LotusPALS - A Social Network of Lotus Enthusiasts. Shirts are available at https://shop.spreadshirt.com/LotusPALS/ (Now available - Look for LotusPALS Rally Day and size up! as they run small).

Feel free to promote this event in any other online venue that is dedicated to Lotus cars.

2 Weeks until LotusPALS Rally Day. Plenty of time to order your shirt. Please make an effort to get out in your Lotus - even if only briefly on June 23.

Despite the light rain, overcast skies and a slight (one day) delay for a number of us to go for a Lotus country drive I made the best of it by opening my garage and displaying the Lotus flag for all to see (not many people out driving around today) and then going for a drive when the weather radar said I had a gap. Not a single sports car on the road, much less another Lotus! Never the less, I always enjoy going for a drive in my Elan S1 :-)

I didn't see any other Lotus on the roads, but this SpaceShip beat me to the Cohansey River off the Delaware Bay in South Jersey. A great day with overcast for Lotus driving.
