Lotus Exige Experience - November, 2019


Recommended Posts

My friend Mark Franke and I booked the 'Exige Experience' at the Lotus Driving Academy, at the Lotus factory in Hethel. It's a morning of driving the standard (220hp) Exige, and the V6 (350hp) Exige. Our instructor was ex-Lotus F1 driver, Martin Donnelly. We also had a tour of the Lotus factory, and of Classic Team Lotus. We met up with friend and ex-Lotus employee, Richard Parramint, for dinner at Bird in Hand Pub. We happened to run into a former chief mechanic for Jim Clark - Dave 'Beaky' Sims - at the bar. These guys have some GREAT stories!
