Lotus Elan

CSCC at Oulton Park

PostPost by: patrics » Wed Nov 04, 2015 6:37 pm

Hi,
Thought I would share my video from my last race at Oulton park - wife very kindly brought me camera and this the first time I've used it - turned out okay
Started from the pit lane as have no second gear which at Oulton Park was a bit frustrating.
You can also hear a noise from rear suspension arm catching new wheel - the previous wheel was okay - now the newness has gone maybe this one will be now!
This was also my last race as a novice so despite 2nd gear it ended up a good day.

Steve,
Apologies, this photo is not up to my usual level of sharpness- I was suffering on the day and left before your race, so this practice shot is the only one I have. :(

Nice videos.

Hi Martin,
It was from watching a video from a Scottish chap who contributes a lot to Lotus Drivers Club that I changed from building a road car to race car - can't remember his name but will come to me as soon as I hit post button!

Thanks for photos Pete - they look sharp to me but I think some how you polished my car! You managed to get 5 Elans in the paddock shot

I need to redo the videos as I have missed parts out and repeated other trying make it less than 15 minute - my computer is taking hours to process these files

Regards

Hi,
I have re made my video's so now you can see the whole race including pit stop and the fab Geneta which goes past like I'm in reverse - this my benchmark - if only I can get my car to go round corners like this!

I made a real mess of these before, hopefully these are better - you can tell it was cold in the garage this weekend that's why I got around to sorting this out.

I can't afford it! And nobody should be selling one - there just to good

Over winter I'm going to try and set my suspension up a bit better and try get some weight out of it.


Will have a go at sorting sound on part 1


Cheers
