Once we'd crossed the border the cars headed for the Nurburgring (Aka The Green Hell). Once everyone had parked up at the hotel I convinced a friend of mine to bring his car and get a photo under the iconic sign. It's these mini shoots on the rallies that really elevate the images even though they are quite often at 1am when everyone is knackered. For the final shot we had to put the car the wrong way on a one way road but it was worth it. Check out the video at the end for a cheeky burnout as we were departing, the Super Trofeo Stradale sounds insane!
Last week I was near Autofarm's new facility so figured it was time to get the Sharkwerks exhaust back on. Whilst we were doing this I realised I have never seen a video on how to take the bumper off on a 997.2. The bumper is already off but I run through the process and then have a walk around of my backdate to see what's going on with that. I still absolutely love the shape and drive of the 997, the 991 and 992 don't really keep the involvement this gen has. Check out the video below.
My first chance to drive the 2019 Lotus Exige 410 on a road and it did not disappoint. Unfortunately it was pretty wet but despite that I still had a wicked time and it probably made the car feel even more nuts.
I had a chance recently to drive the Lotus Elise Cup 250 on the roads around Bicester in the UK. It was my first experience of the Elise and it was the perfect environment (if a little wet) to try out this lightweight sports car.
Last week I took the Radical SR3 to Spa Francorchamps for a test day with a bunch of other race cars. We had LMP3, GT3, GT4 and some Ferrari Challenge cars. It's always fun mobbing these in the corners even thought they have much more pace on the straights.
