Was just looking at the dealer list on the lotus website and notably quite a few have been removed now, the ones that remain are all "Lotus <location>".

Even B&C have been renamed by the looks of it

Interesting. New dealers, sorry retailers, coming to Edinburgh and Aberdeen as well as Parks in Hamilton. It has been a very long time indeed since there was more than one in Scotland. Brave new world for Lotus.

Nice find (y)
Looks like Silverstone will still be my closest (and most convenient if something goes wrong on a cheeky track day 😬 ), but great to see there will be more options out there for everyone.

Woohoo one to be open in Sheffield - quite local to me then. I wonder if it will be operational in June to be able to pick the car up from them :)
I was quite impressed with Central though. What did you think? I like the fact they raced and that bodes well for servicing and upgrades etc in my eyes. Plus proper car people which also matters! :)

They did put some effort into the launch event. I think that Sheffield being an Agency is simply a place to view the car rather than a full on dealership. If Sheffield can service the car it’s better for me due to closeness but at the moment I want it from Hethel with a tour and track day.

A cheeky little track day would be good! I don't want to say it but the Porsche Silverstone and driving days are brilliant. Lotus should really utilise their track for Lotus customers be a great way to embed some brand loyalty

And here am I, stuck in no-man's land (Keswick) midway twixt Bradford and Glasgow. Could do with a dealer in Carlisle to fill that huge gap.
