Is the Elan the worst race car he has driven?

Yes.


i agree a plus 2 is a much easier car on the limit

I think a lot has been learnt about Elan handling in the last 50 years so it is a much better car than when it was first raced. But it is still tricky on the limit and its hard to keep there consistently and put together a perfect lap. At 9/10th the Elan is easier than many cars at 10/10 ths it gets much harder
