The Clubs here are more like the Lotus Club of Canada's sisters than mere organizations with a common interest in Lotus sports cars.
Some of our members belong to all three Clubs. When possible we attend each other's events.
We shared a website with the ECLC and the Lotus Car Club of B.C. for many years.
