Sure that’s not the AA?

Lotus cars are all the perfect size to carry off really bold colours - I love it.

Didn't help with the marshal directing us all towards the boggiest patch of grass possible, and then buggering off once a Bentley Continental GT, Aston Martin, Citroen Berlingo and myself were all stranded!

Tractor dragged us to a space with a gap in the fence to park up, and then a few kind passers by gave us a push start when we were leaving.

The Members parking area was quite well drained, after this years MM and the bitter cold of MM74 I'm lobbying the GRRC to move the MM to May !

Elise out on track at Silverstone.

Was going well until it blew a load of coolant out in the first afternoon session. :(

Think it was just a duff coolant expansion tank cap - seal goes and coolant boils. Had a spare so let it cool off, topped back up and popped a new one on, but didn't risk taking it back out on track afterwards and headed home - didn't want to disrupt the running for others and easier to call the AA to the A34 than the Silverstone paddock. ;)

Plans now a foot to give the car a fairly through refresh (it is 20 years after all), including switching to a S2 VVC engine with 160bhp or so.
