We Start At The Beginning!



I thought I'd start a blog about my ownership of my Lotus, so here we go!


Well this is my first Lotus, a silver 2009 Elise S. I only picked it up a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love it. Having only had my first elise experience in june last year, it has been a relatively short time from desire to ownership, certainly a lot shorter than other people who have been striving for years! (the benefits of no significant other/kids etc).


After having owned a string of reasonably boring reliable cars (VW Polo, Honda Civic Sport, Honda Civic Type R) OK that last one wasn't boring I really want a car to have a relationship with. The highs, the lows and everything in-between, I might be ready for what it throws at me, I might not, we'll have to wait and see.


I have a few plans for the pair of us and a major goal would be to drive over to Spa for the GP (I'd also love to drive the track, but I don't think I'll be able to do that in the same trip unfortunately!) I'd like to survive the Nurburgring and drive Le Mans Bugatti. Also Italy would be an absolute dream come true. Baby steps, though, so I'm going to stick to the UK for the moment, but some track days are definitely gonna happen, along with some driver training.


Well that's it for now...


Be back soon.....
