Seems a little discriminatory :lol:

What is the classification for pre-1995? Designed pre-1995, manufactured/assembled pre-1995, sold/registered pre-1995??? :roll: Could be an important distinction....

Neil

Not looking to sell so just protecting my children inheritance. It would just be nice if our cars lost the unjustified "runt of the litter" label.

Cheers

Wow, what an amazing day! We were treated to glorious weather so a full roof-down treat at the Lotus track and F1 Martin Donnelly giving tution laps which sorted my lines out and knocked 15 secs off my lap time by the end of the day :-)

https://connect.garmin.com/activity/917302343

I left my watch running all day, so there are 5 sets of laps, Martin was in the car on set 2. Was consistently lapping at 2:01 by the end of the day with one cheeky sub-2 min lap at 1:57.8 :burnout:

Was a really relaxed atmosphere and full credit to Magnitude events for organising the day and Lotus Cars for allowing us on their track :clap:
