I have three things in my life I love: drums, of course and they are my first love, after that it's flying gliders and Lotus cars. So here's me having a few moments messing about with the loud pedal in LadyPointon's Elise Sports Racer today to give it its post-winter shakedown after months of being out of action. It might only be 190bhp and 4 cylinders but when a car only weighs 850kg, it's a riot. The bikers among you will know what I'm talking about.
And I have no idea what exhaust LadyP had put on her car - I think it's a Quicksilva - but it sounds sooooo good that I can't help myself. It's the simple things in life. Most of the video is me going down the road to my house which may be narrow but is a dead end and my house is the last one so I can open the taps all I like after I pass the other houses!
Incidentally, the video is because we use a Yi Dashcam DVR in the Lotus for insurance/protection purposes. You would not believe the number of people who see a sports car and think they can get you into a race. Also, I don't actually break any UK speed limits in the video (60mph - 100 kmh) - I just enjoy the gears! My heel/toe technique needs a little practice too when ti comes to braking.
It's the simple [and childish] things in life.
