Sicily with a Lotus 11 day 2

Some post track checks needed doing. Wheel bearing adjustment, general nut and bolt inspections etc. The car looks very different ‘naked’ but easy to get to everything important.

This also provided an excellent opportunity to fit some wiring ready to install a GaugePilot for the Targa Florio and make some drawings to fabricate a mounting bracket.

After the prep work we went in the hire car to recce the hill limb and enjoyed a simple but perfect lunch at the summit.

In the evening all the competitors were bused to a ‘palace’ in central Palermo for dinner and prolonged speeches by the motor club organisers. 

Didn’t understand a word but the ceiling looked fantastic.

    What an exquisite machine, and so light. And what a wonderful place to have a play with a Lotus 11. I hope you have a chance to drive it while you are there.
