Hi all,

Last week, after years of having to settle for driving them in Gran Turismo and Forza, I finally fulfilled a lifelong dream and got myself a Lotus. It's a 2006 Elise 111R Sports Racer, with just the one previous owner (a retired female doctor) and only 6000 miles on the clock. It's basically a new-old (or old-new) car. And she's an absolute beaut:

I live fairly centrally in London, but am currently looking to move somewhere outside the city with better access to proper twisty b-roads. And I'm very much looking forward to becoming part of the Lotus community.

In real life, I work as Lead Producer for Slightly Mad Studios, a racing game specialist currently making Project CARS and World of Speed.

Nice to meet you all!

Pete.

I'm really excited for your upcoming game - does this mean we'll get the Elise in it, since it's not on the announced roadmap? ;)

Hey all,

Many thanks for a warm welcome. And nice to know that there are a bunch of expats out there in the far-flung corners of the world driving a little piece of Norfolk!

I've just had my first roofless drive, and it was fantastic. I think I'm going to enjoy this little car.

My indicators stopped working towards the end, but a quick search of SELOC suggests that bashing my hazard warning lights on and off a few times might fix it. I think there are going to be a lot of these little quirks, aren't there? I'm not the most practical of people, but'll certainly roll my sleeves up and do my best to fix these things as and when they arrive. I've got ill-fitting windows and a tip-tapping sound when driving at high speed (suspected loose cable somewhere) to get my teeth into already...
