  7. Loving that looks fantastic, look forward to a little report when run in.
  8. The end of great weekend driving around in the Lotus having not had chance to get out for 5 or so weeks, trip out yesterday with Norlog, and today a run with a Mersey MINI Club made some great friends we had a MINI and pop back for a few events, this was a Charity Car run for Children in Need. Although at times the weather was inclement car was spot on and has made me happy today and yesterday, also amused how small the Elise is next to a modern MINI!!
  9. Also be intrigued by the Fiat version too.
  10. We have an NC love it, for when you want some fun but don't want to fold yourself into the Elise it makes a nice change as I run my Elise with top on we like the NC for top down fun, we also have had a good look at the ND at Oakmere we'll look to test drive one next spring, I think we'd go for the 1.5 but will try both.
  11. Using the Lotus for what it's made for another excellent trackday in the Elise.
  12. Done a few track days with the Elise this year, today the car just seemed to suit the Oulton Park better than any other track I've used it as so far. Due to a red flag had a shorter AM and then a top up PM tuition session, the bits we focused on the the additional speed I could carry was staggering from such a tiny change in line and technique. Of all the cars I've run on track this one is my favorite by a long way. I've have though managed to loose another wheel cap thing. Anglesey tomorrow
  13. We attend on today saw some racing, red arrows, old F1 cars, some lovely Lotus's, past and present, enjoyed the pit walk and talking to teams, same in the paddock good to walk around and have such great access to the teams, very nice day out as we had a 200+ miles jouney home we left mid afternoon, thanks to those involved in it. Some pic's from the day.
  14. Two weeks off work, lots of petrolhead stuff to do with the Lotus and the Mazda kicks of though with Lotus Festival tomorrow and a fry up in town a little later Though I am up at 5:30 which isn't part of the relax plan, LOL but making use of the time with a very quick gym session......
  15. brilliant we are looking forward to it we are just doing the Sunday bit looks like loads going on
  16. Car started after standing for couple weeks, went for a shortish drive felt great look forward to drive to a Festival next week
  17. one of the better races this year enjoyed that, thought with the early loses it wouldn't be so good, plenty going on. That said I was still able to sort my expenses out during the race......
  18. Did you get these C8RKH, I think there lovely though biased as I have pair too....
  19. Thanks, without Malcom's magic touch it would not be the same and credit is well deserved I did also email Malcom directly to thank him and a picture of what I'd done with his work
  20. Thanks to Andrzej 'Malcolm Feth' Winnicki for the stunning photos from the Brooklands event of our car and with our car in the "Group Banking PhotoShoot" which I am pleased we took part in. I took the prints to my local framer and a momento of our day made up to hang on the wall one we have decided where. I am very pleased with the results.
  21. I had a great day enjoyed the track met some more Lotus drivers, I am less keen on how the 111R delivers it's power on the second cam so you are hammered for being in the wrong gear out of corners was quite a noticable difference on track to my S more so than I thought, and I just didn't have the confidence in the car to carry more speed through the corners so need to work on that too. The Evora looked great on track and after I'd let you past was able to see it really is pretty good in the corners, stick ZZR on be even better. TonyKl sorry to hear you had a puncture that is bad luck!
  22. £630 for one tyre!!? That's a lot
