Thumbs Up I drove Formula Lotus at Mallory Park and it was AWESOME!!!

Hi chaps and chapettes

Had a great weekend driving single seaters at Mallory Park race Circuit in Leicestershire. Got familiarisation in a Subaru Imprezza WRX, went on to Formula Ford 1600 and then on to Formula Lotus 2000, topped it off with some larking about in Caterhams.

Absolutely class day, gorgeous weather whilst we were out on the track although 5 ins after we finished the heavens opened with a huge thunderstorm and they closed the track for the rest of the day.

You can see pics and movie footage in a film I made here

Enjoy

Your not kidding, it was the most adrenaline rush inducung thing I've ever done. I advise everybody to do it who loves driving and cars, it didn't cost the earth either only about £260 I think.

I did the Single Seater Gold package at www.ferraridriving.com I think it is.

Fantastic stuff.

I had a go at Formula Palmer a couple of times and almost pasted myself against the wall, which confirmed my driving capabilities...
