It’s been a long time / I shouldn’t have left you —
Scratch that, I’m happy to have left pretty much everybody in the United States behind for eight great days overseas in Europe. I drove a one-off green Lotus Evora Sport 410 at Spa, the Burgerkingring, and the Lotus test track near Hethel. (That’s the only one where I managed to get the nose of the car dirty, by the way.) As vacations go, I can’t think of anything I’d rather do… but the good news is that it was actually a working trip for me, because I was actually there to cover a new joint project between Ross Bentley and Ron Simons (of RSR Nurburg and 75 Experience fame) and to watch fifteen Americans experience the Nuburgring in hardware ranging from a Megane RS265 to a Maserati MC12 Corsa.
The funny thing is that Bark was doing something even more cool: driving the Acura NSX GT3 at Gingerman Raceway. We will see if he comes back with a report on that.
Let’s catch up on two weeks’ worth of missing contributions right quick.
At TTAC, I told the story of a girl and her race(-winning) car. I considered manufacturer quality issues. There was a Nissan Pathfinder review. We had two “Ask Jack” columns about Porsches: one about the 911 and one concerning the Cayman
. Finally, we have QOTD 1 and QOTD 2, you’ll be amazed all the things they can do!
This week I will have actual content on this site, so please stop by before Friday. Thank you for your patience!
