There are a few Lotus in and around Richmond. It seems half have an Elise/Exige/Evora the other half one of the older models. The one guy who organized group rides moved away a few years ago. Richmond is a pretty cool place.

Elise owner here. I'm in Charlottesville, and I know one other Elise owner in town. That's about 1hr west of Richmond, but you'll go by here to get to the good driving locations!

Which one is yours? BRG with stripes? I'm also in Cville, but don't own a lotus - I just lurk here while saving up for my Exige. You should come autocross. I'll be the one in the loud, blue STI on big hoosiers :shift:

Welcome to Richmond Lowtush. There are at several Lotus owners in Richmond. A good way to meet some of them as well as other car enthusiasts is a Cars and Coffee group that meets every other Saturday (with occasional pushes for weather). Best way to get details on those events is to join the FB group "Cars and Coffee Richmond". Hope to meet you at one of the events, give a shout if I can help with any orientation to Richmond.

Lowtush - welcome to Richmond! I agree with Jeff - C&C is a great place to meet others. There are a good number Lotus owners in the area, hopefully when the weather is nice again we'll see more coming out. Looking forward to meeting you - I have a nightfall blue Exige.

I haven't but would like to hear more about it some time!

There is actually a C&C event this Saturday if you're free.


Dealers... EuroMotorcars in DC is the closest. A lot of the Richmond guys I've met do things themselves. There are a few local shops people have gone to, with mixed experiences.

I still haven't relocated yet. In the process of closing on the house.

I don't think it's been released yet.

Mostly out towards richmond or at Verona. The brr-scca.org, NASA mid-atlantic, VMSC, and shenandoah region PCA all run autocrosses that I go to when I can. Check all their websites for schedules. I think the next one is June 1 at Verona with the PCA but all makes of cars are welcome obviously.

Nice! I had a bugeye (sedan) as you can see in my avatar. I've been considering an FXT as a DD if I can't find a legacy GT wagon w MT which is a bit of a unicorn car. Theres a big subaru crowd in Charlottesville, and I'm sure there is in richmond too; though the few I've seen at C&CR were a bit....ricey I guess. Too many flat brimmed hats for me - one of the reasons I kinda want to get out of the Subarus.

A buddy of mine has your unicorn. They are certainly hard to find from what he tells me. FXT has a lot more trunk room

bump... just bought an Elise... these next few months of ownership will help me decide whether or not to keep it long term, but I should be out to C&CR one of these days.
