Lotus Elise Driving Experience
Colin Chapman's mantra of "to add speed, add lightness" certainly applies to the Lotus Elise. This outstanding, lightweight, mid engined pocket rocket combines pulsating acceleration with go kart handling, offering an overall driving experience that leaves many other supercars in the shade.
The Elise may not have a huge engine, however the power to weight ratio more than compensates for this and with the engine mid mounted the cornering ability will leave you speechless. Nought to sixty is achieved in well under six seconds making the Elise come alive on the track. Tyres squeal on every bend as they refuse to relinquish their grip, the lotus driving experience really is just that, an experience. And one to be savoured.
The Lotus driving experience begins with a short briefing on safety and driving etiquette followed by four miles in a sports saloon alongside a qualified instructor, teaching you the racing lines and the braking points of the circuit. With the lines learnt it's time to strap yourself in to the Elise for six exhilarating miles round the fantastic Three Sisters circuit. With your instructor by your side you will be encouraged to push this dynamic car as close to the limit of its capabilities as you can.
On Completion of your drive you will receive a short debrief followed by a certificate presentation. Professional photographs and DVD's can also be viewed and purchased, offering a timeless reminder of your drive. Family and friends are not only welcomed, they are encouraged to come and enjoy the whole experience.
