Lunch with Richard Parramint ex Lotus Cars, Sunday October 11th

 EMR to Myrniong 

This EMR has been brought forward a week from its normal date. 

Richard Parramint and his wife will be coming out from the UK to attend Lotus2015 in the Barossa. They will then be coming to Melbourne where they will be guests of the Johansen’s. 

We decided that an EMR would be a great way of showing Victoria to them and selected our run through the MacedonRanges, Woodend, Trentham to The Plough at Myrniong would suit the purpose extremely well. 

We will meet at Macca’s Carpark on the

Calder Highway(outbound),  just past CalderPark (Melway 354 J3) at 9.00 for a 9.30 start.
After coffee at Woodend we will head off for lunch at The Plough. 

Richard spent many years at Lotus and is passionate about all things Lotus. He is currently occupied with being a Guide on Lotus Tours and has guided a number of our members through the Lotus factory. We believe that he will be an excellent person to bring us up-to-date on all things Lotus.

We hope that you can join us on the day.
