Manfeild Trackday in my Lotus 7 Replica 1 May 2011
After a bit of a break away from racing I signed up for a non-competitive track day to enjoy my car in the proper environment.
It was so much fun I'm still smiling.
The car was built in about 1976 in Christchurch. I've had it since 1998 and have rebuilt it any times since then.
it has slowly gone from being a road car to a capable and still road legal race car powered by a 1600cc Toyota 4AGE 20v.
I sacrificed a far bit of top speed by leaving the windscreen and doors on and dialling back the limiter to 6500. No point blowing it up when it's not a race day!

car produced by Lotus Cars (initially called Lotus Engineering) between

cars sold, due to its attraction as a road legal car that could be used
for clubman racing.
After Lotus ended production of the Seven, Caterham bought the rights and
today Caterham make both kits and fully assembled cars based on the
The Lotus Seven design has spawned a host of imitations on the kit car
market, generally called Sevens or sevenesque roadsters. Many of those cars
are still produced to this day. Along with manufacturer supplied kits,
there are entirely self-built sevenesque cars referred to as Locosts.

STM Squad Track Day Manfeild 2011
STM customers are a special bunch of people, each are from different
backgrounds and are bought together by their intense passion for driving
and owning fast performance cars.
With some help from the Play Day on Track guys we have put together the
perfect environment for our aforementioned customers to come together and
driver their cars how they are meant to be driven: HARD!
Our latest track day saw 25 of the STM Squad unleashing their cars around
Manfeild racing circuit in Feilding. Check out the short video and photos
below. Make sure you keep an eye out for our track days next year.
PS: At lunch time we ran a sausage sizzle with all proceeds going to the
Movemeber charity, hence the dirty mo close up in the video.
