Took the car along to the Lotus track day at Goodwood a couple of weeks ago. A good turnout and the weather was ok too.

I like that color , a lot , it looks like Regency Red, I'm painting an S2 for a friend Regency Red, he liked it after seeing my race car painted the color ( pictures are on the site somewhere) .

Regards,

George
