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!

S1 Lotus 7 in the 2013 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix
I'm driving Dad's 1959 Lotus 7 with a Coventry Climax motor. Gridded 13th at the start, I enjoyed working my way through the field despite severe problems with the brakes.





Lotus (Caterham) Super Seven First Ride
Poor car had been sitting for quite a while. Drained out the old gas, put in some fresh high octane. Did an oil and filter change. Cranked it for a while with plugs out until oil pressure registered. After that it started right away and I got to take it for a run around the (startled) neighbourhood. Still needs a tuneup and maybe fiddling with jets or timing/advance curve. Engine is 1700 Ford crossflow in "Super Sprint" tune. You can really hear the straight cut gears! Camera is latest Go Pro HD mounted on roll bar. I will try it again with the open case so we can hear more engine noise.
