I done a bit of some of the levels and its what turned me on to the Elise. I drove a 1.6 which Id always overlooked as not being very powerful with a low(ish) top speed. Well I soon learnt that little car is much more capable then I am as a driver. They are awesome. 

I too would recommend upgrading your personal skills with Lotus Driving Academy.

Absolutely what Buddsy said, I always disregarded the Elise 1.6 as being too underpowered but after the day I realised that I can only ever dream of being more accomplished a driver than the car can support. The whole day was well organised and the track and tuition were A1.

BTW I'm pretty sure that we are on the same course - you had the fantastic Red Esprit.

Me? I did do the course and take my Esprit but it was a few years back!

I have just got back from the Bronze Licence at the Lotus Driving Academy.

A top day including a great tour of Classic Team Lotus and the factory which engaged us with the heritage of the Lotus family!

I had David Pittard as my instructor and had three fantastic sessions that pushed me to think, reflect and drive more smoothly and faster. 

The others on the course were a great bunch and most were Lotus enthusiasts and owners. If you are thinking about booking just do it. For those on the full package to completing Gold have a great time!

Everything is coming up as sold out.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

Attended the Scare yourself sensible session yesterday morning. Even in the wet the cars handled brilliantly. The procedures set up are very professional. Doing the organising was Guy and Danny was doing the driving. Martin was also there. Thanks guys for the great day which we all enjoyed. All those who attended were impressed and had fun.

I was the only Lotus driver there! There were 2 Porsche drivers! One of them was my brother.

On a personal note, I need to improve my consistency, my application, my commitment but I was having fun with a sociable bunch of people. If you are thinking about it, just do it.

I will be back.
