So last weekend we had our first race in the Lotus Elise at Donnington Park, one of my favourite tracks, firstly it was a huge tick as I can now say I have raced a Lotus, Lotus is my favourite car Marque, I’ve lost count how many I have owned over the years so for me this was a very special day.
So how did it go? if I am totally honest I was a little disappointed that I wasn’t a little quicker but we did come away with a trophy for third place in our class so I really can’t complain at that and as seat time is so important, and I was racing people who have been in the Elise Trophy for years, then I’m hopeful as I get to know the car better then we can move up the grid and taking positives from the weekend I got faster with every session on track with my fastest laps coming at the end of the 45 minute race on Sunday.
Next stop in Silverstone in a couple of weeks which I am really looking forward too as I’d like to think we can really be in the mix there and whichever way you look at it I will be racing a Lotus as Silverstone, now that really is a dream come true.
