I’m booked in June, and plan to combine it with Goodwood. Who’s with me?

Thank you @TomE for the heads up that this might go live today!

How exciting some of you will be driving one next month!

I must admit I don’t fully get Martin’s comments about GT car:

” After many years of working at the Lotus driving academy, I am really excited to return this year with the new Lotus Emira.
It’s an amazing GT car that really helps you learn how to get the most out of driving a modern sports car both on the road and on the track. “

If only they zoomed out and photographed the whole car in Magma, then took another shot of the ice grey interior…!

Technically the Evora was also considered a GT car by Lotus, wasn’t it?

Ugh, I have a factory tour scheduled Aug 15th as I'll be in the EU the week prior, but looks like they're only doing Thursday that week :confused:

Instruction from a former F1 driver and the folks who developed the car, driving on the company’s test track. What’s not to like?

I did previous versions with Elise, Exige and Evora. Great fun, most people learn a lot …: and it’s not your car you’re hammering round the track.

Sounds like a blast! A little pricey for a half-day event though... Current Lotus owners should get a discount (though that'd likely be 90% of the attendees).

Any idea if that price includes insurance /damage waiver, in the (unlikely) event of getting a bit too lairy coming back onto the main straight? 😀

EDIT: Never mind, looked at the Ts & Cs... liability is £10K. Not that it's an issue... you have to be proper knob to manage a big crash with an instructor on board :LOL:

Ive booked mine 29th July... in theory will collect the car before then, so should be interesting to see what it can do, which I am 150% sure is much more than I can do....
