Jeez. I just sat through the whole of that. 

He seems like a lovely guy but don’t get your hopes up - it’s more about him (and the sound of his voice) than the Lotus.

Absolutely ... is that a true “GTE” or a replica that he owns now? Fast n Furios 8?!?

No, it’s not a GTE. Just a Win-Ace bumper on an NA car.

Only a few exterior mansory parts though, he didn’t buy the interior bits they made for the Evora.

I heard a lot of blame put on the instructor and not much responsibility taken for his own actions. Grabbing the wheel is not unusual from what I’ve heard of some instructors.

I understand exactly what he's on about. 

Haven't crashed myself but heard a lot of provardo from an Instructor who talked a lot of shit and could easily have ended me up in the wall. He was making money on the day, didn't care. Too much chat about his RS ? and not enough instruction... Looking back that smug look at the safety briefing... No respect towards the basics, a utter cock. Since had loads of instruction from quality instructions who funnily enough "instruct"! 

I admire his passion for driving on track and not being put off, it's the best.

That said, how was his driving on his first laps on a cold circuit, being a novice driver and cold tyres that the instructor felt the need to alter his course and that he ended up off circuit anyway despite his instructors intervention? I wonder if there's another video with an instructor saying about the day he nearly died when a novice didn't listen and thought he was on a qually lap on his first time out?

I just don't get a warm and fuzzy feeling that this instructor did any kind of instructing...
