    A journey into track days

    I think you're right @Colin67 - I'm already looking at dates and cancelling stuff in my diary!

    A journey into track days

    Hi guys - I didnt get chance to post in advance, but I have managed to do my first track day! So thanks to you all for you're advice earlier in the year - however I am well and truly blaming you all for getting me hooked!! 😂 I had an awesome day with @david_pittard at Bedford on Monday, I can't recommend him enough. I feel like I learnt so much in one day that I definitely need to book a second session (unless I put you off a second session @david_pittard by trimming the grass with my front splitter 🤣). There was also a great photographer at the track so I managed to bag some great images.... I've posted a few below! 😃

    Brilliant stuff! I’m all signed up and really looking forward to it... sounds like it’ll be a good turnout! See you next week 👍

    350 Sport Battery

    Thanks @NickEng, I hope that’s all mine is as well... it certainly feels like it. I’ve got the spanner 🔧 on the dash as well though so I think I have another issue - although potentially not related to the electrics or battery! Do you mind me asking which lithium power pack you went for @NickEng? They sound like they could be useful...

    350 Sport Battery

    Thanks @Arun_D. I might be interested in that, however @KJD might have a point about something draining the battery. I've read some other threads and asked about abit and it sounds like it might have another issue... I've got it booked in next week, let me see what they say and I'll come back to you if it is just the battery!

    350 Sport Battery

    I’m assuming its a faulty battery just because I can have it on the CTEC for 5 day’s, but even then it struggles to turn the car over and the dials flick right to left... (like when it’s flat) and there’s small delay in lighting the instrument panel up. If I turn it off I get one or two more starts then it’s dead... Feels to me like it’s not holding it’s charge... Im not sure what else could be draining it?
  7. Hi guys - I've read the previous battery threads, but just wondering if anyone has recently replaced theirs. Ive got a Jan 2017 car and the battery is already knackered, so I need something abit better than the factory spec I think. It's started draining even after a decent run (like today, when I got stranded at Oulton Park!!). I also have a tracker fitted to the car which isnt helping. So far the best I can find is a Bosch S4.... Has anyone got any other reccomedations or ideas?

    Lotus in the Peak 2018

    I love this video, great job by whoever pulled it together!
  9. Thanks Bibs! I didn’t see that... Great - leave that with me and I’ll get on it! 👍
  10. Hi @deanb - Lotus in the Peak looks awesome, I'd not seen it either but I might try to join you if you don't mind. Those roads are awesome up there. How does it work, would I need to register on MLOC?

    Track Driving intro....?

    I love that video @Bibs, looks like you had a great day there. @david_pittard thankyou that's great, I'll drop you a message. The thread is good as well @M4rk, some great stuff in that. You're going to get me hooked on this - I've already bookmarked the Demon Tweeks web page!

    Track Driving intro....?

    This is great - thanks alot guys. Sounds like I'm on the right track then (no pun intended !). I'll have a good read through that thread @Bibs. At a glance it seems to have some good stuff in it and David looks like a credible option as well, thanks for your help... @BatMobile - thanks for that, I'll definitely contribute to that as and when I can. You'll have to let me know how you get on with David!

    Track Driving intro....?

    Hello everyone - I’m looking at introducing myself to a bit of track driving. I’ve never done it before but I’d just be looking to learn how to handle my Exige bit better, exploring a few limits and generally just having some fun with it. So far I’ve looked at some tuition slots on track days but I’m not sure if that's the right environment for a complete beginner (or is it?). My other option was the basic Lotus License at Hethel. Has anyone got any better suggestions or experience of this? Any thoughts greatly appreciated… Thanks guys.

    Hello from Sunderland

    Hi Mark - Welcome and I've just recently as well after getting the same model in black! I love the look of it in red... very nice! Not sure where you're based but if you go to any meets or anything I'll try to come along.... would be great to see them side by side!
