Great stuff!! Get some photos up of the car then!

At least the car passed scrutineering, it would have been a real pisser after all that if they didn't like yer cage.

Good luck tomorrow, make sure you don't 'do a Beadsmoore' :grin:

For the avoidance of doubt this is 'doing a Beadsmoore'.

Chris was of fine and the car is on its way back although has taken some time (years).

Good luck today. I found that the results are online here for anybody that's interested :

If I'm reading the results right it looks like you had a successful first outing :thumbup:

Wow, that looks serious! ... but glad the driver was unhurt ... it is a very narrow and very fast track!

Couldn't beat the Cayman (who did a PB) Dammmmit ... and I struggled with sport/race traction control modes but I was just glad to be there, Exige shows real promise and I had a great day, lots of good comments on the menacing look of the car!

Were you out again at Shelsley over the weekend Tony?

My Dad mentioned he'd spoken to someone is a white Exige V6, I figured it must have been you!

How did the car go on its second outing..

Car went well thanks, still needs a little fettling and desperate for proper soft tyres, but I am out at MIRA on Saturday so that should suit it a little better and also give me some valuable time in the seat! I've got tweaks planned for over the winter so I am hoping to hit the ground running next year!
