I think Mark told me they were turning laps in the 1:07's at Lime Rock. This is good for a stock street car, but not spectacular. I run in the low 1:05's with a stock engined 968 on track tires. It's 235 hp and 3050 lbs.hermanslotus said:Not my experience, but the chief of my dealer ( HRM ) Mark Starr took the demo up to his favorite track Lime Rock Park in CT. He told me he was lapping the Ferrari's all day. It was a Ferrari track day. I found that amusing
His demo is not even an LSS Amazing:bow:
You should be able to totally dominate in the esses as well as the braking zone before 10A and 10B.eliseowner2b said:Im going to Track Days at Road Atlanta in October but I've been to the Dragon's Tail in Tennessee twice now with my Elise. This will be a great track car, no doubt in my mind. I've been there about 15 times and nothing compares to the Elise. Of course, a tight road course will be where the Elise shines. I think the more open tracks may not be it's natural home as braking and turning are what the car does best.
Oops, didn't see this post from weeks ago. Anyway, just for the record, I think Mark's car had only a few hundred miles on it. Also, there were two people in the car, and Mark himself is a pretty big guy...Vantage said:Hi Charles,
It seems the Elise is not as fast around a race track as we all had expected. Perhaps a case of waiting too long. Was Mark's car broken in yet at the time? I seem to remember that it wasn't, and that he was running harder with his Exige. Could be mistaken. Do you know what time the Exige runs?
