I e-mailed Lisa Hartgrove ([email protected]) for the 2004 dates of Scare Yourself Sensible Experience, the dates are:

*Saturday 22nd May
*Saturday 5th June

I was hoping to do the program it when I visit London in two weeks, ah, guess another time.

She forwarded my e-mail to Annette Lancaster ([email protected]) to try to arrange a factory tour that they run on Wednesdays.

I'm really amazed at the quality of service I received. They are doing a top notch job. I e-mailed on Sunday and recieved a reply today (Monday).

What a nice change!!!! A company that cares!!!

Thank you Lotus.

It included a tour of the factory, 20 minutes on the track driving an Elise and two laps around the track being driven by one of their instructors. I am attaching my synopsis of the morning. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who will be going to England.


Then came our turns to sit in the passenger seat for two laps with our instructors driving. Once again, I was waiting impatiently for my turn on the track. Nor was I disappointed when it came. While I had striven for technical correctness at any speed, Alastair McQueen was demonstrating technical correctness at Ludicrous Speed, not even slowing for the chicane that had me downshifting. There were several times that I felt for sure we had hit a cone, but we never did. Hyla Breese did bump a few just ahead of us though. In Alastair’s capable hands the basic Elise had no problems keeping up with her more powerful sisters. It is amazing how big the passenger seat feels when you are flying around the track at over 100mph and there is nothing to hold on to except the edge of your seat. Another comfort that was noticeably missing in the Elise was an “Oh S%&t” handle for the passenger.

Sounds like a heck of a lot of fun!

Andreas,

You wil be even more impressed when you actually have the tour. They are wonderful people working at Lotus! It helps to be a small, enthusiast-driven car company.

I concur with Lillie. And it is nice to know that people are still reading my review. Even if I don't get credit when it's quoted. :D
