Had another great day thrashing the poor ol'car.

Hope the backfiring +2 got home safe.
Evora was impressive.

So what speeds did Elans manage to take the corner at without spinning?

I have only done NWeald in my Elise, but I keep meaning to do a day in the Elan

Looks like you were having fun!
The interior Mirror doesn't vibrate, amazing.
The dangly bits on the Dashboard, Key Fob etc. indicate cornering forces of around 1g.
Thanks for the Pics & Clip.
