  1. I'm afraid I can't make it this evening
  2. Haha yeah I saw that, Lewis certainly has a fashion sense all to himself
  3. I used an outdoor cover, purchased from this forums online shop. It was a great car cover, though it did start to give me lots of unwinding cotton threads. I kept my car under a carport and then with the cover, no issues with microblisters at all but then the car port kept rain off it so I never had an issue with standard water sitting on the cover itself, only a few drops of condensation dropping down. Another option might be a portable garage on your driveway, something like one of these:
  4. Its narrow like a street circuit at points as well so it would certainly be exciting! I'm pretty sure Button drove an F1 car round it a few years back....I'll see if I can find a link
  5. There are some great elevation changes at Bathurst from what I can recall too!
  6. Well there is that yes! Perez would be good for Haas I reckon, definitely worth changing out Grosjean IMO
  7. Yeah there's a good chance at that, I've been pleasantly surprised that he's stepped up this year (and some good drives last year too). I thought he did some great overtakes at Monza - seems good on the brakes (but then they are a copy of Mercedes ) At the same time, he's not worried about his place in the team so he can properly get his head down, enjoy the racing and do his best. Unlike Seb at Ferrari
  8. I do agree, Seb is below his own standard at the moment, but I do think Ferrari are responsible for it. I don't think they are a nice team to work for in the slightest, and I've no doubt from my own experience in the past of how toxic work environments can be that he's been affected by whatever conversations, arguments, vibes and insinuations have happened there. On the plus side they are producing fabulous road cars at the moment! Perez in my opinion has failed to shine over the many years he's been in F1, so I can see why Stroll is thinking to mix it up a bit. Sebs a great character
  9. Certainly, the electricity to charge the cars has to be 100% from renewables, but really, for me its sheer scale of manufacturing ALL that we consume which is the real problem, the end products like cars, boats and aeroplanes sure they emit pollution and produce it with global coverage but the energy consumption and waste from the manufacturing far outweighs them. Anyway, personally, I quite like the idea of converting existing cars; there's a guy in America who has converted the Evora to a full EV and it's quite impressive! So, if I was feeling a real stickler, I'd say we actually need
  10. I had a non valved 2bular and it droned below 2300rpm so I'd say that's exactly why it does it!
  11. "....but as this is the BBC...Frankly, I think we should take them all outside and shoot them..."
  12. Definitely! And a maybe a quick drive! I'm hoping to have my reverse lights fixed before the next week
  13. Your last comment makes me think you should look at it yourself if you haven't already; just to make sure you're not being led on or its being exaggerated. It does sound odd for it to happen, given its relative protection from the elements.
  14. That's a real treat being able to get in the Evija, looks the absolute nuts and it's great see Sam being way more enthusiastic about the brand than he was a few years back; he may, just may, be catching the Lotus bug!
  15. Whose you're dealer? I see you're in Paignton Is it Hendy Lotus in Poole? If so, there's a really good specialist a little bit closer - Purbeck Sports cars, maybe worth giving Jon a call there and see what he thinks. He's Lotus trained too, hes looked after my Evora and my Elise (in fact, I bought the Elise from him!) As to the problem, it doesn't sound right to me at all; it really bugs me when dealers give you 'its normal', especially if they haven't experienced the issue first hand, I've had that line from Mercedes, VW and Mazda in the past!
