Good to see how the formula 1 guys handle the rain in Malaysia. No much better than us poor group S historic guys at Phillip Island a few weeks before. No matter how good if you cant see you cant see. :D

It also feels like all of the wheels are falling off doesn't it :shock:
Pity they didn't start an hour earlier, which the locals were suggesting.
Shame :(

Ed,
Enough of the faux Shapecraft images. I thought I had been redirected to one of the Elise sites. :shock:

Sorry Ed, you missed the point. I'll be more direct, the photo you posted is offensive, at least in the elan.net setting.

I don't want to prattle on too much on this but we want to be careful about the content posted here. I like to check lotuselan.net at lunch when I am at work. I used to be able to go to some of the Elise sites but they are almost all blocked from our company network because of objectionable content that worked its way in. I wouldn't like to lose access to this site except from my home computer.
