This is my first Lotus, I bought it after deciding to give up Motorsport (for now) in order to buy a house, I wanted something which could put me as close to the adrenaline of Motorsport as I could get and still be able to go for an open round drive round Derbyshire. The colour had me sold straight away….

I love the versatility of what is on the face of it a simple car. It’s fast, sticks to the road, caters to all driving levels and the challenge increases proportional to the speed.

My favourite driving location is anywhere around Snowdonia national park. I don’t memorize the road names but every turn you take brings up amazing views, sweeping roads and plenty of places to stop and take photos.
