    To be frank, because that is what the German car brand mass buyers have become conditioned to and buy - just look at Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche et al - I would bet that over 90% of every one of the millions of cars that they sell new have a black/charcoal interior. The journo's just love it, the buyers just love it, and cupholders everywhere! So, as i've said before Lotus just cannot win - no matter what it does there is always going to be someone who just lambasts them for it - probably being lambasted by the owner who has specc'ed a dark, bland interior in his German daily driver for the past 20 years!..... I deffo prefer a lighter interior - this was my 2010 S1 NA after I had finished with it and in my biased opinion it is even nicer than the one above! - simply a beautiful place to be and much nicer than my current 410 Sport - although, I have plans in place to rectify that!

    I couldn't agree more! What is it with the current crop of new Evoras (and Exiges): every single one has an interior which looks like a study in tomb-like greyness! Why have all these gorgeous paint options on the exterior then sit in something so Gothic, when you could have something that looks as good as this car instead!

    Cadwell Park Race Weekend Report! Hi Everyone, This is just a quick one as I wanted to share my quickest lap from last weekend as I feel that I probably did my best lap yet in our Radical SR1, it is a slow process getting on top of these cars but everytime we go out we get a little bit faster which I guess is all I can ask for. My problem is that I love chasing lap time and here I can find reasonable speed now but I go slower in the races for some reason, not ideal I know so just need to treat the races like qualifying. This past weekend at Cadwell Park went pretty well, closed the gap to the front guys again, have to say that I absolutely love cadwell Park, probably my favourite track of the year, it is a stunning location and the track really is quite technical and challenging but it definitely rewards an attacking driver and getting air at the mountain is definitely a unique experience which keep you awake. So I went 4 seconds quicker than when I was Cadwell last year, I put it down to my new helmet design, if I knew it was going to make that much difference I would have done it earlier I was concentrating on carrying more speed into the corners which I am getting the hang of now, for once the below lap actually looks reasonably fast whereas last year they looked pretty pedestrian. I was mortified when I got home to watch my lap and find that the file was corrupted somehow but luckily I found some guys in California who somehow un-corrupted the file for me which was a huge relief, thanks guys. So anyway here is the lap, for me it is worth watching just for how beautiful the track is - Next Stop Brand Hatch in a couple of weeks Cheers, Paul.

    Do you guys get to vote on who becomes the new PM? If this sort of thing happens here, the party itself has a leadership battle and we minions end up having a PM that we never voted for who then runs everything they way they want to and potentially, any issue we voted a government in for, can get chucked out. A leadership spill can even happen when the PM doesn't quit, but the party has a whole heap of backstabbing etc. I hate politics. Possibly one of the biggest money sucking pits on the planet. I think they even beat lawyers and second hand car salesmen. The older I get, the more I think my vote is just a waste of time.

    BBQ FACTS We are about to enter the BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity . When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion: (1) The woman buys the food. (2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert. (3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand. (4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman. Here comes the important part: (5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL. (6) The woman goes inside to organise the plates and cutlery. (7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat Important again: (8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN. (9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table. (10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes And most important of all: (11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts. (12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed ' her night off ', and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women

    Heard something yesterday that really made me think. It is so obvious I can't believe I hadn't heard it or thought it myself before......... If the Brexit vote had been reversed, ie a small majority had voted to remain, would there have been 3 years of crap calling for a new vote or trying to frustrate remaining in the EU?? Don't think so.......... Pretty much sums up the whole shit storm this has become. I hope to God that the new PM has big enough balls to leave at the end of Oct. No vote is needed, no agreement needed in Parliament. It is already legislated for. DO IT. Wake up the complacent bastards at home and in Brussels and then focus on sorting out free trade asap once we are out. And the £39bn can be spent on domestic things like care for the mentally ill or children with special needs. It really is a disgrace that in 2019 we are in the state we are in within these shores. Batten down the hatches, let other Countries sort themselves out and put our own house in order first. An American! How ironic!

    I'd take it over an all black interior any day. The 2 tone interiors look good and lift the interior. That said the red leather (which is what mine is) is a touch brighter red than the alcantara. No issues with my Sparco bolsters at 20K, they are wearing better than the Recaros did.

    Long old list of candidates. A veritable Eurovision list of talent to choose from. By the way is this Graham Brady chap the acting Prime Minister? He seems to be pulling all the Tory strings these days.
