Lotus Elan

Historic Sandown 2014

PostPost by: rgh0 » Tue Nov 18, 2014 7:18 am

A few pictures of the Elan last week. The car ran very well, rolled it off the trailer Friday morning and drove it back on Sunday evening with not a need to touch it except for fuel and tire pressure checks in between. The new Yoko A048R I put on were better than the Dunlop DZ3G I had been using previously. The Dunlops were great for the first 3 laps but then got too hot, the Yokos are a little slower to come on in the first lap but hang in there for the whole race.

cheers
Rohan

Did you stay ahead of that Pantera?
I saw a Lotus 7 give it a hard time at winton years ago.

The Pantera has way to much hp down the long straights unfortunately for me to stay ahead

Yes my friend Mike in his S4 Seven can give anyone a good competition on a tighter track like Winton.

cheers
