Lotus Elan

My car's 1 second of fame

Lime Rock park has produced a rather nice video for this weekend's historic festival, my car has a second of fame (literally) at 0:41s.

This was during the Elan 50th celebration last year :D

Shirley that's my car with a different number plate? Pistachio over white............, nobody else but me would choose that colour scheme.

Does Andy Warhol need to revise his adage for the modern age? Everyone will have their one second of fame.

Well spotted though!
Kindest regards

Don't call me Shirley & I don't think Andy Arsehole can revise anything where he's at!

Not wishing to upstage you, Phil, but I had 43 seconds of fame in 2012. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vCvmaPkxIM but as hardly anyone`s seen it, I`m not so famous really. Nice clip and FTD out of 135 entries. The wide, understeery, apparently clumsy, line around the first cone was quicker than the handbrake turns on the tricked up Escorts, surprisingly.

Perhaps a "video of my Elan" thread is in order? :D Seeing these 2 vids was quite enjoyable.

I have no idea whose Elan it was, but it was in the Lotus Corral on the far corner of the track on Sunday:
