I drove mine to Brands Hatch and back yesterday.


Worst traffic ever on the M25. Came off and took the A25 round to Guildford instead. Mostly tedious trudge behind slow grannies through 30 and 40 mph zones. What a total waste of a race spec car.


Then I reached the road up the hill towards Newlands Corner. For once, not a car insight. Sweet Jesus! That one will stay with me for quite a while. The startling part was how much more there was to come. It was then a blast down the A3 in the dwindling light. Slowed right down in that new tunnel, opened the windows, 2nd gear to the redline, straight into 3rd, V6 shrieking, ripping the cool air with demented fury. Absolutely magic.

wont go into the 2 911 owners out with their girlfriends whose weekends i ruined :) 


juvenile stuff but all done in 'the best possible taste'... 


seriously though, what do you replace this car with????? £for£ there's nothing like it.

I have developed a pavlovian response to the Lotus canoe smell.


Just getting a waft when I open the door of my car can quicken my pulse. That and some drooling.
