No reason, just some gratuitous photos, still in lockdown, but pulled Exige out of its winter hibernation since last year for a good clean up. It’s still on SORN but assuming some normal is returning in April and hopefully some more sun it’s ready and raring to go 😎👍

That is good eyes, I knew what I was looking for and still had to look twice !

Hopefully we’ll get the Exige’s meet at C&M off the ground and can see them together 👍

6am start. 2 hours across fantastic b-roads. I haven’t driven the car since last year. It takes me 15-20 mins to find my feet with it again after that long, just to get sense of the inputs to not overdrive it or try to hard and then.. it all clicks and then honestly all I can think is “what a ***king car”.. it really is fantastic.

I know people fuss about the prices or the mileage but they just need to be driven and enjoyed, I’m staggered by how the car improves and opens up its abilities with a proper run.

Hope everyone’s gets a few runs out with the Easter Weekend 👍

Well done, that man!
I spent part of yesterday wrestling with the DVLA website trying to tax mine. Failed at every turn until this morning.
So tomorrow, all being well, I will let the cycling club pedal without me and take a drive.
