I had an early session at the Castle Combe action day, and the Elise was great!

Felt really really good, very planted and what suprised me was how good the Yellowstuffs were the hotter they got - a massive difference from cold to hot.

Though I managed to spin coming out of quarry, and took out two cones and the 'safe to overtake' sign :lol

Left a few scratches on the side, but im sure they will polish out.

Please excuse my driving, its the first time iv been on track in over 6 months so just getting a feel for it, and I need to be stonger on the brakes and tidy my lines up - also need to be less agressive with my steering.


I think the fastest I got was around 1:27, which im very happy with my first time out :up



Anyhoo the vid:

Shame about the damage russ but like you say hopefully it will polish out.

Amazed at how quick the Elise is, especially compared to some of the higher powered stuff that was out there.

Must say though, that spin is just funny.

It'll buff out.

I spun the Elise at Anglesey (cold tyres Very Happy ) it happened so quick that I couldn't catch it.

Soon learned how much power I could get away with coming out the corners.

Glad you are enjoying the car Smile
