Apart from Chatsworth, I've had very little chance to use my Elise this year- just too busy. In fact, between Chatsworth and this weekend, I've only used it for a few twenty mile runs to see a mate.
On Sunday, I took an ex GF out in it. (It was winter when we were dating and therefore Elsie was all wrapped up in the garage, but I always promised her a spin.) Weather was really good for it, not too hot, not too cold, so she was happy with the roof down and didn't moan too much about her hair. Had quite a steady cruise from Lincoln out to the coast as the traffic was a bit heavy, but on the way back had some good opportunities on some decent B roads to push on a bit. I had one moment through a bend where she gripped the side of the seat, but once she got comfortable with it she giggled every time I overtook something or accelerated hard out of a bend.
I think I now understand why 17 years old have accidents.
I had a Metro when I was 17.
