There are a couple track options in Arizona. Inde Motorsports in Wilcox is a well laid out track, 22 turns in 2.75 miles. A non-supercharged Lotus will hit about 110 on the main straight on that track. There is Musselmans track in Tucson which is a scale model of the Suzuka track in Japan. There is also an active SCCA club in every major city. There are some amazing drives in Arizona, the old HW666 (Devil's Highway) which has since been renumbered; the road to Sonoita Patigonia; Mount Lemon; Kitt Peak. etc. It is a great driver's state.

I've lived in Fountain Hills since '92. It's a great place with numerous fun "Lotus" roads nearby.

My '06 CO Exige is my daily driver. I'll keep an eye out for you in January.

Congrats. You should join us for the group drive on 9/16. Should be a decent size group and the roads over there (SW of Madison) are surprisingly great.

WhatsADSM,
I heard he had to leave the state. All non-honda-powered Lotus owners were teased and tormented endlessly about their toyota engines. ;)

WhatADSM - seriously. After all the interaction on the threads, I realize I've never met you live nor have I seen your machine which sounds straight loco!

Why not come join us for that drive on 9/16?
