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!
5.0 V8 Lotus Seven replica (locost) TEST DRIVE
This is the second test drive of the V8 Lotus Super Seven replica I've been
building from the ground up. 3 years ago I started with nothing but some
square steel tubing, wire welder, and angle grinder. Thanks to everyone
that has supported me and helped me out.

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.
The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.

1969 Lotus Elan - Jay Leno's Garage
1969 Lotus Elan. In the late 1940s, engineer and RAF pilot Colin Chapman
decided to utilize the experience he gained in the skies on the ground, by
building a racecar in his girlfriend's garage. While still holding down his
day job, Chapmen begged, borrowed and bartered to create his prototype,
which he entered in a time trial as an afterthought.
