Hope to get to the ring next year with the Elise.

Will be doing Nitrons and sticky tyres, that’s where I lost out this year on Frolic.

We did the ring last year (in the 400) and it was the “relentlessness” of the corners that got me... Normally a track day allows one or two “rests” where you gather your thoughts and attack again (main straights etc), the ring is just corner after corner and all are different. Amazing place.

Yea. I am planning on upgrades at some point. But not until I am confident I’ve got the most out of the car as it was designed. This was done with new A048, first time I’ve known them to sequel every corner and under braking. Although the track was dry there was moisture in the air all day, you were never sure if the next corner would have received a little sprinkle.

@JG220 thanks, although a Bit disappointing really, I thought it would be quicker. I took the Caterham 270r earlier in the year (135hp, open diff) and managed 8:15. I think I am subconsciously more cautious in the Lotus... next time!

@Five50 it’s in colour. VBox looks like it was using the spot metering from the onboard. Need to work out how/if that can be changed. Lifted it straight out of the Caterham which obviously had no roof.
