My S1

Back to owning a lotus after selling my S1 elise a year or so ago for an Atom - but now back to pure driving pleasure again




how was living with an atom?



Atom was great on track, less so for fast road driving.
Bonkers fast but you had to concentrate 100% or it felt like you’d end up in a ditch.

Was certainly a head turner though.



Fabulous pictures.


Have another…


Great pictures…I was going to buy an Atom but went for the S1 instead…why didnt you go for the S2 though?

The S2, unless going for a 240R or similar, is, to my eyes, an s2 with a hardtop ( flame suit activated ) whereas the S1 is a design classic.

And as this is a weekend/track car I can use the money saved for some extras for this one.



Great pictures…you don’t happen to be a photographer do you…if not why not.

I do/did a bit of trackday photography and getting this car has made me pick it up again.

Hopefully doing some elises and exiges at the weekend, a bit of a group shoot


Welcome Pete,

great piccies - obviously taken in … Lancashire

Taken in East Yorkshire! ( insert proper rose here )

See you at the Buckes in a proper car this time eh?

Will you be fitting a sprinkler system inside the car and wearing your helmet to get over the atom transition nice and gently??? (and a 2lb bag of grit and leaves)

Did you submit those piccies for the Calendar or were you too late???


Missed the calendar entries, didnt want to see a camera again for a while after doing lots of trackday stuff all year

Next year i’ll get some pics…

Stunning pics… esp the second one.

welsome to
