Driving an Exige Cup 430 at Lotus' secret test track

I was also allowed to check out the legendary F1 machinery at Classic Team Lotus

I had never driven a Lotus before this day, but what a way to set that right! The Lotus Exige Cup 430 is the most extreme road-going car that the company makes, so to get a first taste of it around the Hethel test track was pretty damn life-affirming.

That was quickly followed by a quick walk-around of Classic Team Lotus, a treasure trove of grand prix and title-winning Formula 1 cars from the company's history. What a day!

  • Really good look at the old F1 cars.

    That Twin Chassis is so simple in concept, and effective in execution.

    But which is more interesting, thermodynamics of the engines, or aerodynamics of the bodywork?

    My Father bought a TR6 that was a twin chassis, was made from two written off ones.
