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!
Never Driven Manfeild. Here is a basic insight on how best take the
corners. In this video the car we captured the video on has turned in to
early on most corners, and the exit positionong is not ideal and exit
speeds are lower. To see if you can do better come to the next Road and
Track round October 24 at Manfeild.

Lotus Eleven Replica. Qualifying at Silverstone, 24th August 2013
Qualifying for the 45min SR & GT Challenge and Roadsports race at
Silverstone, using the international track.
Qualifying went well, its unfortunate that the Lotus 23r driver felt the
need to hold me up for the majority of quali (defending into corners for
instance - its quali not the race...), yes i could've dropped back a little
but i'd have ended up catching him up again.
Qualified 15 out of 33 on a 1:21.83
Finished the race in 7th place overall (3rd overall in the SR> Challenge)
with a lap time of 1:20.23 - not too shabby, especially when its only
running a 1315cc engine...
Sorry no footage of the race due to the DVR not recording during the race
