This website is about the life and times of our Caterham 7. We are Chris and Maggie Alston and we've been members of the Lotus 7 Club of Great Britain since March 1998. It all started in February 1998 when Maggie hired a 7 for my birthday.

The car was first registered on 1 January 1993 and when we purchased it on 6 February 1999 we became it's 4th owners. It was a standard 1700 Supersprint when we purchased it, but over the years it has been upgraded to a higher specification. Between October 2007 and May 2008 a major rebuild was undertaken. A further upgrade became necessary after the x/flow engine 'let go' in July 2010 whilst touring in Andorra and subsequently over the winter of 2010/11 a Raceline Zetec engine was installed. In the following winter 2011/12 the fuel system was upgraded from Weber DCOE 40s to Jenvey throttle bodies. In 2015 it was rebuilt again following an RTC in Switzerland.

The 7 has clocked up over 75,600 miles since it's been in our possession and over half of those miles have been in France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg and Andorra.
