Highly recommended; I took the Level 3 class in a one-on-one season so had car on track all day, thsi was about 2 years back, it was intense with lots and lots of lapping time and by "intense" I am comparing to to Skip Barber 3-day racing school.
re: left hand. If you are the only left hand driver in the group, you may not get it as was the case with me (I believe its a question of cost, to have to prep an additional car for just one guy is not cost efficient I guess). Really wasn't too bad because I had just spent the last 14 days driving all around Ireland and England in right hand standards (everything they have there is standard). But I was fortunate to get a 2011 Elise (which is what I have) so essentially, I was driven my car, just looking out a different window! And let me tell you what those instructors can do! They work for Lotus and drive Lotuses on a Lotus track, you can bet they know what these cars can do. They made those cars dance around the track!!!
I did a similar gig at silverstone a few years ago - my first time driving a lotus! It was the only RHD I've ever driven, and I was surprised how easy it was. I missed couple shifts when I rushed, but it was really not bad. It just seems more fitting to drive a British car around a British track the way they do, even if it means driving on the "wrong" side
My Fiancee and I have been talking about where to go for our Honeymoon. We're thinking Europe, specifically England and Ireland. I already told Mrs BigBird that if we go to England, we're going to Hethel.
How much does it cost and what do I get for my money?? Is there a place i can go to gather all the info of what would be available when I got there?
Call me crazy but if I got to tour the hethel headquarters, that would be more than fine with me!! Kid in a candy store!! Throw me on the track at the Lotus factory....I'd die a happy man!!!!!!!! :nanner:
My wife and I went back in 2001. We had a great time. At that time, the cars were all RHD Elises, the S2 design, but with the 118hp Rover engine. The instructors were amazing! You can probably arrange for a tour of the factory while you're there.
