The West Coast Lotus Meet (WCLM), the premiere event for Lotus enthusiasts in Western North America, is heading to Lake Tahoe. With the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains and the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe as backdrops, the 2014 WCLM will encompass four days of total Lotus celebration starting Thursday, October 2, and ending Sunday, October 5.
Hosted by the San Francisco Bay Area’s Golden Gate Lotus Club (GGLC), this event will be a joint effort with the Southern Nevada Lotus Club, Lotus Owners of Phoenix, Club Lotus Northwest, Lotus Car Club of British Columbia and the Evergreen Lotus Car Club. Without a doubt, the 2014 WCLM will have something for every Lotus enthusiast from hard-core track junkies to vintage cruisers as well as everyone in between.
The WCLM organizing committee has planned a fantastic series of events that include: a Casual Concours; a private tour and banquet at the famous National Automobile Museum in Reno, NV; a Lotus Autocross; and an optional Lotus track day at challenging Reno-Fernley Raceway. In addition, there will be great awards, lunches and spectacular scenic drives!
