LOG 30 Announcements

I have checked with the hotel and we currently have 1/3 of the rooms booked. The block of rooms that we have reserved will hold till the beginning of Sept.

I am looking into reports that there may have been some problems making reservations. Yesterday a power outage in the area prevented the hotel from taking any reservations.

The logo for LOG shirts is posted on the club website. Photos of the clothing with logos will be posted soon.

Friends of LOG is an opportunity to post a message in the LOG Book. The form for this is located in the sponsorship section of the website.

Speakers and guests will be announced soon.

Each LOG invites various representatives of the media to cover the event. Keep a shine on the car, you never know who might want to take your photo.

More to come,
LOG 30 Chairman

LOG 30 Announcement

Speaker Announcement

The speakers for LOG 30 are a combination of old and new. Satch Carlson was the speaker at LOG 8; he returns for an encore performance. Five years ago, we met Bob Dance in St. Louis and he became a friend of LOG. Each year that he returns to join us is a chance to rekindle our friendships with him. Bob has joined many of his fellow Lotus teammates at the LOGs and this year he joins Kenny Szymanski to help us celebrate the Sunday dinner.

Whose insurance covers any incidents at the track?

Does calling it a "Drivers Education Event" make it fit in with my street insurance policy, or does the group take out a one day policy for everyone?

No group that I am aware of insures DE participants in that way.

The DE format and rules *may* help qualify the event under your street insurance policy (compared to an open lapping day), but that will depend on what your particular policy states. There was a time when many/most insurers would cover non-competitive, non-timed events, but over the past decade many US insurers have added clauses to exclude racetrack activities of *any* sort. You will have to examine your own policy to determine if any of its coverages would apply.

However, supplemental single-event physical damage insurance IS available. The LOG 30 track event has been qualified for the Lockton Affinity HPDE Insurance Program; individual participants may purchase insurance directly from Lockton to specifically cover track day damage. Obligatory disclaimer: the club and organizers have qualified this event solely for the convenience of participants, and this should not be considered an endorsement of Lockton's program. For more details, consult Lockton's website at:

It's not too late to sign up for the track day, which is being held on the uber-twisty Shenandoah Circuit at Summit Point. You can add it to your existing registration by sending mail and a check to the club's PO Box L address; we'd also appreciate it if you'd drop an e-mail note to let us know at <[email protected]>

My Nationwide agent assures me that I am NOT covered on a track in any situation, however, the Policy Exclusions state "any pre-arranged competitive event". HDPE is not competitive, so I think legally I am OK.

If I'm planning to attend the HPDE, is there a checklist of what things must be up to date for the tech inspection? Do you have the tech inspection form?

Edit: Nevermind. I found it here.
A historic event in a historic place

The current car count for LOG was 178 the last time I checked. This is based on what each registrant said they were bringing to LOG.

The breakdown of cars seems to be an equal amount of old and new cars. There are still last minute entries and walk-ins that will bring the total number of cars even higher. If the information provided is correct we could see a 200 car event.

If you have not made up your mind about coming then consider that it is rare to find this many Lotus cars in the same place. Cars that have been tucked away and not seen for some time will be back on the road. The last LOG on the East Coast was 2003.

The hotel still has plenty of room. There are about 80 rooms still available as of today.

Can't wait to hear where LOG 31 will be...
I Received a Letter Confirming my LOG Registration

Today I received a letter confirming my LOG registration. It details the options I chose (e.g., events, food, merchandise) has a schedule of events and directions. Everyone who preregistered should have received a confirmation letter or should be receiving one shortly.

Exactly! :cool:
