Leanne's birthday pressy was a bash around Silverstone in an Exige last week. Weather was atrocious, but it did nothing to dampen her spirits (although I got drowned standing out in the middle of nowhere to get pics, but hey, I'm a SLEG), and she managed to give it a decent thrashing.

I took her up in the Esprit, which got us a nice welcome from the instructors! A few pics:

Just before the off...

This was just after the instructor lap. She was gobsmacked!

AND - best assessment in her group! A bunch of red faces among the blokes.

Problem: she wants one now. :(

Nice pressie Gary. Wanted my oldest daughter to experience the 2 Eleven at the Club Lotus Castle Combe day earlier this year, but age restriction of 16 put paid to that one for a couple of years.

Good pics!

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

This is my daughters first Lotus experience, well on a track.

A bit older now, she was about 5 then that's the old Elan in the background at Eastern Creek near Sydney over 200 ks on the straight. No, I didn't tell her mother!

Totally awesome ... and I thought I was doing well getting my wife's grandson a Hot Wheels V8 Esprit for his 2nd birthday the other day :lol:

My old man, god rest his soul, arranged for me to be taken on a hoon around the back roads of Bedford with one of his friends in an Excel for my 16th. Got to make the most of it I think.
