Today was the Lotus Club Victoria concours. I entered the GT300 which duly won the track/race car category.

I drove the S4s there, but since it won the State and the National concourses in the past, I didn't care about entering it in today's concours. So I just parked it there and left it unlocked for people to look at it...

Well, while I was away eating and drinking, apparently since it's in such good condition, it was assumed that it was part of the concours and it was judged and it won the whole shebang again! LOL

So both cars that I took with me there today won the concours. The GT300 won the 2011 Race/Track car section and the S4s is now the 2007 State Concours winner, 2009 National Concours winner and now, innadvertedly, 2011 State Concours winner.

And the S4s did that by only losing 2.5points - 0.5 for originality and 2 points for the engine bay cleanliness - as I said, the car was not prepared as it was not supposed to compete. It got perfect scores for exterior, interior, seats, instruments, boot, undercarriage, wheels.

Good day today :D

What's not original on the S4s?

Everything! LOL

Every new performance option and most cosmetic options released by Lotus for the Esprit over the years has been added to the car. Easily over $50k spent on those options.

The 1/2 point was for the exhaust though - non Lotus item.
