Having grown up watching my Dad race his 1969 S4 Elan in the Historic Sports Car Club during the 1990’s, Lotus ran through my veins from a very young age. Even as a primary school student, I set my sights on owning a S1 Lotus Elise “one day when I grow up”.

By my 24th birthday I was ready to join the club – and duly purchased an Ardent Red S2 Lotus Exige – a dream come true!

50,000 happy miles later and it still puts a smile on my face on every start up. Whether it’s driving from A-B in the UK, taking it to Spa & Le Mans, or hitting the track, I’ll find any excuse to drive it!
