  1. May want to wait for it to warm up a bit, Marc.
  2. They miust be open-crotch panties so he can get his head through.
  3. I disagree as an Elise or Esprit can be enjoyed at any speed. Here's a good article from Road and Track which talks about what makes a sports car. Doesn't need loads of power or massive grip.
  4. What a bummer. After all that work, someone else got the benefit. I hope it went for a good price.
  5. Just looked at the big, lairy spyder web site. Gosh! That was a huge amount of work. Looked nicely done. How does it drive?
  6. A 2-year restoration at LotusBits sounds expensive but the car looks worth it. Beautiful.
  7. Happy Christmas everyone. Here's to a healthier, freer 2021!
  8. I'm not sure whether the Honda throttle response isn't a bit spikey compared to the Mercedes so he may have been getting a surge in torque as the throttle pedal is cracked open. Max performed pretty well in the bad conditions at Hockenheim last year. Interesting to hear Hamilton out-think the team in Bahrain when that told him his tyres would last to the end and he asked about what if there were a safety car as Max had fresher tyres. Could job for him that the safety car came out so late.
  9. I have the Covid-19 symptom tracker app on my phone and one of the scientific bods on there says that, because of the delay in infection showing up after exposure, the statistics imply that the tier system was having a positive effect. The problem was the disparity in different parts of the country leading to the NHS being in danger of being overwhelmed in those areas. It seems to me that it's a shame the government didn't worry about saving the NHS when it was effectively making cuts to it for the last 10 years.
  10. Nice car, Mark. It'll be interesting to hear how it compares to an Esprit.
  11. I was talking to a Berkley owner at the Stoney Stratford gatherng on New Year's day and he was claiming that the Berkley was the first car to have a GFRP monocoque and that Chapman bought one to steal its ideas. However, I seem to remember them having a significant amount of aluminium sheet in their construction so I don't think he was correct.
  12. It did and the Spanish flu killed between 17 and 100 million people. Trouble is, people are infectious before they get symptoms.
