New Caterham Owner Here


Recommended Posts

Greetings, Max Here!

 

Just wanted to say HI and I was wondering if there are any other Lotus 7 type owners in Eastern Washington?

 

Hi and welcome.

 

Do you happen to have gotten the orange one from BAT?

 

I think there are a few WA members here.

Welcome to the club forum and congratulations on acquiring your new to you Caterham!

 

There are quite a good group of sevens based around the Seattle and outskirts area although the weather out there likely has kept everyone indoors for the season. I met quite a lot of them at a Christmas party in Dec 2019 before the virus and social distancing became a reality. JohnCh has the best knowledge of who is around that area and you could PM him if he does not chime in. He may be distracted given he is key to the forum website conversion underway currently. But I know he likes doing drives with other sevens.

 

Cheers

mike

There are a couple of seven owners who participate in the Team Continental track events at ORP. When I go down, that makes 3. If you go, that would make 4. The next event is https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/team-continental-track-time-trials-hpde-oregon-raceway-park-tc-321952

 

The other guys are out of Oregon. It doesn't take much longer to get to Oregon Raceway Park than the other nearest tracks for me. It is a fun track and they are a safe, low-key group.

The Caterham I purchased is very much like the one from BAT. It was the personal car of the Northern California Caterham Distributor. It was his vision of an R400.attachment.php?attachmentid=18150&stc=1

It needs a few things done, but it is fun to drive!

Is that your Elan? If so, that means there are at least 3 of us on here with yellow FHCs.

Yes, Its my Covin Project (LOL). It should be on the road 2022. If you look close you can see the 5 speed transmission sitting in the front wheel well.

Hey, that sounds like a lot of fun. Assuming I can navigate a conflict with my wife's birthday I'd be very interested!

Max, curious if you purchased the stand your Elan is resting on?

 

The Stand is my own design and build. The body is attached to it using the normal chassis mounting holes.

PM me if you want the design drawing

It was postponed until August.  There are lots of options for track days.  I am not difficult to convince to go.
