  1. Lots of balls slicing through traffic like that there too - you really do have no idea what other punters round there are going to do and whether they’re on the RHS because they’re pulling over or because their lines are all out of whack. It’s a proper scary place to drive that fast on a touristfahrten day!
  2. Cayman/Boxster GTS values seem pretty solid atm too
  3. Those increased wheel slippage thresholds are enough to go properly sideways it seems!
  4. Ah, was great to meet you! Had a fab evening - doing 2'24" laps by the end of it, still not as quick as I am on the bike round there which was a bit surprising given the extra rubber on offer! Loved the Evora though Also - dare I mention it - had perhaps the most shameful moment of my track day career - having a spin on the *second corner of the sighting laps* 😳. Put the car in sport mode, booted it out of the hairpin, lost the back end to the left, caught it and came round to the right, lifted off like a chump and gently departed the track backwards. Marshalls didn't seem to care so I quickl
  5. I generally have that same philosophy for cheap track days with bikes - way more intense than a car, and you barely go through brakes, tyres or fuel compared.
  6. Just posted some in the track thread but thought it was worth dropping one of these from Snetterton last week in here. You'll be glad to know the Evora made light work of that TT
  7. Finally got the photos through from Snetterton last week. Had a blast in the car - it's just so well balanced. First car I've ever had on track where the brakes didn't cook and the tyres could keep taking the punishment. Felt like it could have handled some more power, but then that's probably because I'm used to razzing round there on a bike You may notice my passenger in some of these pics - was her first time on track, perhaps it shows?!
  8. The PO of my car spent £3600 getting the clutch changed on my car in 2019, and that was with PJ Lotus at £60/hour labour! Agreed it's an overhyped issue though and many cars will go to 70k or more on original clutch with no problems.
  9. Also no mention of a new clutch either, and at a mileage when it wouldn't be a surprise if you needed one soon. But I'd say it's more or less where the market is at right now for a nice car. Change hands at £28k and both parties should be happy.
  10. I spotted the wheel caps had come off both fronts as I was cleaning the car the night before. I can only assume it was a thorough lapping of Snetterton the week before which did it! Remains to be seen whether they have the time to photoshop one back in again
  11. Agree - great day. Ian from Absolute Lotus was a machine, never seen someone work so fast in the face of impending weather hitting! Article will be 8 pages or so, out in the next issue. Excited to see it!
  12. I would probably spend the £2k on the lower mileage, newer car which isn't press fleet - but you'd want to see both in the flesh before making any decisions.
  13. I've got a track day in the Evora tomorrow at Snetterton but the thread in my towing eye receptor has rusted out so the towing eye won't hold. If I need recovery - any tips about where the straps should be wrapped around the underside of the car? If anywhere?!
  14. In the current market, absolutely. Would be nice to have a mention of service history.
  15. Was at Donington yesterday on the new bike - it’s quite something!
