I missed Winton for the regularity but will now give my new toy a basic shakedown at the Rob Roy interclub next weekend.



1969 Lotus Europa S2 with Gordini spec Renault engine among other nice highlights.

Probably going to be wet, but I bought it to use it, not look at it.
Say hello if you are in attendance.

Not my work, bought this from Dick Ward, so if you remember some of his Sports Sedans you will know he builds a reasonable jigger.

Geez your honest!
Didn't you at least wash and polish it?
Dick did build good cars!

Started off very cold today and with no traction, turned out to be a very nice day with a few people setting their fastest ever times.

The Lotus is faster than me and could drop the time a bit from the 27.84 I ran late in the day. No risks taken, no curbs hopped, no grass cutting. Probably a low 27 possible for me, maybe a low/mid 26 for someone that can actually drive.



I'll post some video somewhere eventually.
Spent a lot of time talking to people attracted to the toy.

Easy when your limits are as low as mine

The competition on the day was tough.
Some had the advantage of being in their own backyard.
