Nice to see the Lotus Evoras out at Oulton Park today although why they have now painted them in one of the fag-ash liveries, rather than green with a stripe, is beyond me.

Wow, that paint job really doesn't do the Evora any good!

Yeh not the biggest fan either...

Someone asked me the other day if I'd painted my JPS plus 2 to copy the New Renault F1 cars, then suggested I also put red wing mirrors on... :roll:

The photo in the race programme shows a metallic green car with twin yellow stripes; it looks OK, certainly better than fag-ash red, but is spoiled by all the sponsor logos plastered all over it. I wonder who started that? :roll:
