Goodbye Black and Red, hello Red and Black

Post by gp_fisher » Sat Jul 02, 2016 11:19 am

Went to pick up the new Sport 350 yesterday, from Williams.
Really pleased with the buying experience with Williams. Even though it was a long drive there and back, being based just North of Bristol.
The terminator gear selector is a revelation :D
The tartan interior is made from a few old pairs of Sir Jackie Stewart's trolleys :lol: . I know the tartan trim isn't to everyone's taste, but I do like it.
I have ordered a pair of tartan driving slippers too :lol: Only joking.

We hope you are both well.

Hi Dave

Can't be long now before your nice motor arrives ;)

I really enjoyed the whole experience of owning the LF1. The factory visits with other owners, including photo shoot. Tour of Classic Team Lotus and meeting Clive Chapman.
The Enstone trip, again with other owners was fab :D That will probably never happen again :(
I just felt things had run their course and it was time to move on again.

After the last couple of days driving the Sport 350, I am really glad I did as the car does feel a step forward (well to me anyway)
Even though I will still be driving slow at trackdays :lol:
