I really think that's one of the best days on track that I've had. Dry, then torrential rain, then drying again. In one of the best cars I've ever driven.

Nice looking car, I see that you used a few litres of fuel so it must have been fun :veryhappy:

Jim, this was the Javelin Trackday, right? They were busy bees this weekend then as they looked after us on the Sunday at Barkston Heath :thumb:.

Jim. Is this going to be written up as a PH article or somewhere else? It would be good to read what you think about it as I can't ever see me owning one myself but one can dream B)

Track Driver - first issue :thumb: Uber impressed with it, did over 1000 miles on road plus a trackday. Stayed out in the pissing rain with all the electronics turned off, didn't die... although Tris (who was helping me for the day) did spin it when he had a go :o :D

Nice interior, wonderful seats, not bad gadgets, and lots of them, incredibly composed ride even in the real world, but an absolute blade on track. I'll miss it until I drive another. And I will... I will :karl:

It looks like a lovely peice of kit :thumb:

Lotus have a skill of making them ride well don't they B)

Appreciably better day to day than an Elise? Noticeably less accomplished on track?

Quantum leap better on the road. Proper car.

I drove round all the Elises / Exiges that were on track, you don't know who was driving them, but it certainly isn't shabby.

They'll do okay out of it, and I played the game and stayed off the track when there was queuing in the pitlane. Mind you, I was literally out on my own in the middle of the day.

Grateful to Colin, he'd been sold out for months :thumb:
