Wink Lotus Racing Mockumentary

Some friends of mine and I took the pile of footage we'd amassed of my old Lotus Europa at the Golden Gate Lotus Club's autoX's and combined it into a completely fictional documentary about us racing it. There's lots of Lotus footage in it, and just of the old Europa (most of the cars at these events are Elise's and Exige's). We're uploading it in 3 smallish parts over the next few days. I thought you guys might find it amusing:

Part 1:

Glad you guys are enjoying it! I'll post the link to the second part tonight before I go to bed. It won't be live till midnight PST, but that way if any of you are still up and need a laugh you'll have part 2 at your disposal.

Loved it. Very funny, and talented group of car enthusiasts. The person doing the voice over could definitely do a proper "past, present and future?" Lotus authorized documentary. Can't wait for part two.
