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.

today Caterham make both kits and fully assembled cars based on the

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.

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
