My local circuit.........less than 5ml, great offer....................BUT...................90db. limit !!!

doubt if my Nissan Micra shopping trolly could make that, so no chance for the Esprit !!

Dont worry,be happy.............

You would be surprised. The noise restriction is only through the back section of the track. I'm running an excel with 240 hp and no centre boxes and only got flagged a couple of times by the marshal.

Greay day out, the rain held off most of the day leaving a track mostly dry with some grasy sections covered in leaves, agood turn out of mostly Exige/Elise variants with a few Evora, a couple of modified Exels and me in the Sport 350.

I was almost sent home before the start as I could not pass the strict 90db. after a little negotiation we compromised and I was allowed to run at a max of 4000rpm !! now we all know how hard that was going to be, I tried and really tried hard and the Esprit with its long gearing and enormous low end torque could hold its own no problem but by the afternoon sessions temptation took over and after a few laps at full power and no black flags I just had to let it go go go !!

Big thanks to all at Newcastle Lotus and the team at Croft circuit.

The coffee and buffet lunch enjoyed by all !

Dont worry,be happy.............
