How do you fit in this poll?

1. I'm a professional racer:shift:

2. I use my Lotus for track ONLY. I heavily modify my Lotus (perfomance/handling) and I do the work myself.

3. I track my Lotus several times a year, but I drive the Lotus on the street too. I do the maintenance myself.

4. I took the Lotus to the track once or twice. I use the Lotus for weekend use, canyon and mountain roads.

5. I use the Lotus for road trips, searching out great Lotus Roads and enjoyable destinations. I drive the hell out of my Lotus!:D

6. I use the Lotus for daily driving to work and back.

7. I show the Lotus at car shows. I enjoy the aesthetic part of the Lotus.

8. I store the Lotus for collectable item.

9. I use the Lotus as a "Date Magnet"!:p

10. Other (explain)

Pick one or MORE choices to fit your Lotus Lifestyle!:wave:

I'm sure this has been done before on this Lotus Forum, but this poll is a bit different and it would be nice to know how your Lotus "attitudes/lifestyles" changed!

I used to ride a motorcycle everywhere, but now, I have to decide between motorcycle and Lotus, lol. Admittedly, the Lotus usually wins. :D I have tracked the motorcycle lots of times and will have to take the Lotus to the track soon!

As a motorcycle track day enthusiast, I bought the Elise primarily as a track car, but used it mostly for weekend jaunts.

Hard to take the poll because I think most people fit into 4-5 of those and you can only select 1 !!!

Well, there are no mountains or canyon roads within a thousand miles of here, so I'll add something along the lines of occasional/seasonal/casual driver...

I'm the opposite. The bike usually wins. Cars are becoming less relevant to me as time passes and seem to serve more utilitarian purposes like carrying more stuff, although I do enjoy driving my car as opposed to some horrid FWD automatic "transportation appliance" :D

I want to go to the track with the bike (not sure how soon) but I'm more excited about tracking the bike than I ever was about my cars. :evil:

Well, the car is new. I've had motorcycles for 4 years now. You gotta go to the track. It's addicting!
