TLF International Lotus Day 2017


Recommended Posts

Maybe I've missed it, but I couldn't find a date for the TLF International Lotus Day for 2017. Is it happening, and if it's at Brooklands, is the Hotel offering the excellent deals on overnight stays again?

Very true. They have 0.1% of visitors buy a car on a visit (they have 300k a year and sell 3k cars from their showroom) so with around 1k people on the day, they do sell a car to one of our visitors (statistically speaking). That's without the cafe/gift shop/experience revenue. 

The people I organise it with are super apologetic, but it's orders from above.

Stinks..... the place is bloody rammed on the day. The cafe and experience takings must be through the roof. I know I spanked over £100 on experience things for me and Danny on the day. Was well worth it though.

worse case - £5 entry fee ???? Although I don't know if that would put some folks off. It would be a lot cheaper than the Brands events ??

Yep @JG220 and I paid £200 each for AMG experiences that wouldn't have happened had the day not taken place.

I don't know how many attended last year but i doubt it was a 1000. so it would be more like the £20-25 a car. 

And given that its really just a car park of lotuses (that's not a criticism - but its not an event like the festival at brands for example) i'm not sure many would pay that. 

It seems to me that it was mutually beneficial. MBW offered something to keep people occupied, Lotus owners provided a decent footfall for the day.

What a shame if it gets cancelled, we always pop in Brooklands as well as bought our son an experience for his birthday.

Bibs, do you have any other venues on the back up list?

Dave :) 

Do or do not, there is no try!

I live right next to a huge park, and its car park is only 75 yards away.

Catering concessions, bouncy castle, resident DJ.  Excellent range of premium spirits at reasonable prices.

£45 per car inc. free burger, soft drink and souvenir wooden pen.

Since I'm now a 'consultant', you could engage me for a fee of £1500 a day and I will look into ways of resolving that for you.

A consultant is someone who wants to borrow your watch to tell you what time it is, and charges you for the privilege.

Also, I think you have the decimal point in the wrong place on that quotation by about three places to the right.
