Tracking with the Lotus Elise at Mont tremblant

In 2 weeks I will have the opportunity to be a passenger in a Lotus Elise belonging to a friend of mine who is tracking it at Circuit Mont Tremblant:rocks::rocks:

If anyone anticipates being there on August 4, let me know-we can get together.

Elise's are GREAT around a track. I miss our forced fed Elise so much, still yell at my dad for selling it. It was by far the best car I've ever tracked (we also used to own a Noble M400). The Elise in stock form is great but most other cars are gonna piss on you in the straights. But boy, when those second cams kick in it sure is fun. The car has a freakin powerband lol.

Agreed that the track times will not be the best, but he won't let me drive it alone...I wonder why.

My friend went to Russell school and has lots of track experience, even with me as a passenger, that cat will go around the track faster than I could drive it alone.....

Tremblant circuit is like a mini-Nürburring; lots of turns off camber and blind, inclines etc., should be a lot of fun:rocks:

Can't wait!! I have never been in one, and to get to sample it in its natural habitat (track) should be great fun.

My friend owns this one..an he let me take it out at Miller Motorsports last year at the 2-day Audi club event there. When those secondaries kick in for the first time is like "whoa". Definitely a momentum car. I drove it on track for about 25 minutes straight.

And here is another pic of the owner driving it in one session:

Very nice - the difference in body lean between the s4 and elise is quite noticeable
