Here is 2 laps of Hethel with Dave Minter at the wheel in a base 120HP Rover powered Elise when I did the driver's training in 2001 with a friend of mine (he video'd the run):

(Beware.. Its 38 Mbyte..)

Notice the total lack of decelleration as he passes through the first chicane..

Bye, Arno.

And one other color. That's right, one OTHER color.
I hate to even bring this up because they said I'm not allowed to talk about it. All I can tell you is that I got to see a "possible" new color that they are trying out. It was beautiful. And that's all I can say. REALLY sorry about that.
Seafoam green, perhaps?

Hello Arno,

When I did my training in August they did not have the chicane between the Senna curves and the windsock corner. Why was that there? I was able to go flat out in the 111S 156HP from the hairpin to the chicane at the end of the main straight.

White is already an available color (called Old English White).

Hmmm - so does that mean it is not white? :shrug:

I would say metallic or lifestyle, but I would lean towards metallic as I'm not sure EXACTLY what qualifies a color to be called lifestyle.
