I know he will appreciate that. He said he got to ride with one of the instructors in an Elise. He did not know what moddle or year, but I am sure it was a prack only version. He said it was pretty impressive. We will both be at LOG 24, so I look forward to meeting you then.
I saw a link to some pics on Roadfly the other day, but I could not get the page to open...
That was Jeff Plummer's Sport 190 Elise. Jeff is one of the smoothest drivers I've ever seen. He's a great instructor as well. That's why it's nice having him in Lotus Ltd. and living near us in the Midwest.
Harry's a great driver. The Exige was being driven for the second time on the track by a novice and the Motorsports Elise was, well being driven carefully. Had the woner let one of his sons in the Motorsports car, it would have been more fun to watch.
There's a Nord Stern Porsche event at Road America July 12-13. Any chance you'll be there? I've got my registration and am still trying to find a trailer to roll up there with. Seems U-Haul has caught on to my idea of renting a trailer from them for a non-one way trip.
It would be great fun to see an Exige on full boil at RA.
Can't do the weekday events - I'm out of vacation time.
My car is also stuck on stands until I get some damper issues sorted.
While I love to spectate at RA - driving it is a different story. I'm not that big of a fan of it, especially in the Exige (getting passed at 170 by the Vipers/Vettes when I'm going 130 is kind of scary).
