Re: Anyone bought a new car recently?

Not really spoken about it on here, but earlier in the year, we finally got out of lotus ownership after me having at least use of an Elise or Evora since 2002! The Evora wasn't getting any younger and getting a newer one didn't fulfil Elaine's requirements for an upgrade, namely something that felt...

Elise - we Salute You

So, the time has finally come. The line is being drawn. Quite right too, I feel - anything you could develop today from scratch carrying the Elise name just wouldn't be the same. It wouldn't have the same stripped back DNA or the same real connection back to the 1996 original. So, instead of dilute,...

Re: iRacing - Knockhill on way

Hopefully the laser data being out there might mean stuff other than iRenting gets it as well... unless they are sending their own team, which would be an odd choice for such a US centric service.

Re: LOT: Anglesey, Oulton Park & Cadwell Triple Header | 25,27 & 28th October 2020

Welcome back!! In other news ... It’s unfortunate that Wee Nic’s Central Scotland-specific “advice” is not to leave your health board area. Effective til 25th Oct ... Swinney confirmed not to cancel booked events or staycations if they take you out of area, just "be careful". So that "advice" is pr...

Re: Type 131

First up should be the Elise replacement. I'm beginning to doubt there will be a direct one (as I said above) Hopefully I'm wrong, but I don't see how you engineer a world car with the dimensions of an Elise now and move it towards the more sophisticated luxury tastes of car buyers in the £50K+ bra...

Chaps and Chapesses, You may or may not be aware Andy and I have been doing some events for the past couple of years for McLaren Glasgow, including some track events. With them being part of the Parks group that now have the Lotus franchise, Parks Lotus are keen to come on board as well to introduce...

Re: Is it like riding a bike?

Even pressures, TBF. Never driven a car before or since that's so sensitive to tyre type and pressure - could be perfect geo, but a set of hard tyres and 30 odd PSI in them, the thing will feel lethal. IIRC, I ran my pressures as low as 22f 24r when I had mine - albeit on track tyres. Still want to ...

Re: Is it like riding a bike?

A few hours ago I picked up an s1, 10 years to the week since I sold my last one. I managed to get in and out easily. I managed to take the roof off easily. But I've forgotten how to drive it! :( I've only been out in it for 20 minutes and the roads were still slightly damp but I didn't feel confid...

Good shout - their responder treats it like a general enquiry, but clearly just signing up to a mailing list. Will be good to see how they engage.

Re: Type 131

Love Auto Express lazily using a Bahar render (cos obviously there's no images yet) but not actually saying that anywhere that I can see, so folks will start debating the looks of a years old dead concept again :) WRT the story? Seems a really odd niche, unless you subscribe to the Evora being the 9...
