Lotus Exige S
Probably the most popular car on the fleet, 220bhp with the Lotus Sport Pack options added our Exige S runs a Performance Friction brake upgrade on the front and carbon fibre wing and splitter, the Lotus Sport seats and four point Schroth harnesses hold you in place and the car does have an adjustable anti roll bar which we typically soften for a wet track day. This particular car also runs Quantum two adjustable race dampers and uprated Performance Friction brakes.
The Exige S is a bit easier to drive than the normally aspirated Toyota powered Lotus' with more of the power accessible from lower down the rev range but it still keeps pulling all the way up to 8400rpm . Like all of our cars you can specify the addition of a Video & Data package to take away the video of your day with a data overlay and separate data analysis file, highly valuable if you are looking to improve your driving or if you just want a great record of your day.
track day car hire from track-club is not your typical red letter day type experience - our cars are hired out on an exclusive basis and we manage the day as if the car is your own car for the day.
Typically a track day will start at around 0800 with driver sign on, either before or after the safety briefing a track-club technician will introduce you to your car and instructor (if you have booked an instructor). Once you are briefed and you are comfortable in the car and familiar with the controls you will be free to take to the track at your leisure. Our cars do not have artificial rpm limits and we only expect that drivers to treat the car as they would their own. The car should have around 15-20 minutes rest in each hour of driving to allow for fuelling, oil checks, tyre pressure setting etc. Your hire ends at the end of the track event.
You can share a car with as many drivers as you like subject to payment of the additional driver premium but we recommend no more than 3-4 drivers per car to allow a sensible amount of driving time for each driver. We do not count an ARDS instructor as an additional driver if you are receiving tuition and they want to demonstrate a technique to you.
The hire fee includes;
- exclusive use of the car at the your chosen track day
- the car is prepared in our motorsport workshop, delivered to the circuit, cleaned and made ready in your allocated garage or in the paddock
- insurance subject to the vehicle specific excess - £4500
- full technical support, one of our technicians will aid you with harnesses and manage fuel, tyre pressures and suspension settings
- all fuel included for sessioned track events, first tank of fuel included on open pit lane events with additional fuel subsidised at £1.00 per litre
track-club can arrange the booking of your preferred track day and co-ordinate track fees, tuition, car hire and any other services on your behalf.
