  1. Well done Barry... you always get your cars back together so quickly. Keep it up. Shame there isn’t any film of your Tourette’s moment
  2. The bloke is mad if he doesn’t take your offer. Hope your keeping well, fingers crossed you will get it back.
  3. So sorry to hear of your loss Chris. Keep strong and remember the good times.
  4. Good luck on your search Lee. Some of us meet up at the Bird in hand if you fancy it sometime .
  5. I also have had a great experience with Mclaren. I had a bit of a problem with the brakes due to the car sitting after being washed. Oxidisation between disc and pad ( when the car senses water, the caliper pushes the pad closer to the disc to skim the water off) Normally this would just pop off, however this time solid and couldnt get it free. Mclaren replaced all disks, pads and two front tyres as I scrubbed the front tyre trying to free it. I think it was the right thing for them to do as it wasn’t something I could control .
  6. Sold the Mclaren ... bitter sweet. However the feeling happy bit is that I have decided to dust the Elise off, change the oil and use the car at it should be. Early morning thrashes, track days and general enjoyment. Loved the Mclaren but its beyond my skill level. Every time I drive the Elise S1 it feels slow until I realise its about braking later, perfect turn in and then pedal to the floor earlier. Looking forward to the spring already.
  7. Knowing you @Barrykearleyyou will have ticked that list off by March.
  8. Sounds expensive to , imho
  9. Enjoyable read. Sounds like your being hard on your lap times, seems bloody quick to me 2.12 wow @The Pits.
  10. Awesome video Bibs. Editing is spot on to
  11. @SJP68 that picture is amazing . Did you draw it? Pictures attached are in my garage, Mrs won’t let them in the house
  12. I think the productions plan sounds far to many for a car at 1.7m . It’s not exclusive enough, especially as the brand sells cars from £40k ish. I hope Lotus achieves its numbers as it’s a awesome project. Turnover isn’t related to profit
  13. If you have another key there is a code on it. You can order the exact key off of the internet. Otherwise you can speak to Lotus and the key code will be on the build sheet
  14. I’m pretty sure you have cornered the market in the last week
  15. Wow the black has made a world of difference
  16. I have been offered the Jim Clark Go Go Dragon today. Its not for me at the moment but I said I would offer it on here for sale. Will happily put you in touch with the company who bought it . They paid about £10,000 . They said the would except £3000. @OwenGT3 designed and created it. A very unique bit of art. Stu
  17. Rotten luck ... that’s racing I suppose. Your instincts served you well. Good luck at Snett.
  18. Nice work Barry , proper dad !
  19. Have fun.... actually it’s pretty impossible not to.
