The Exige V6 Cup R in this trim is over £100,000, a lot of money for a Lotus so it would have to be something special to make us part with that sort of money.
It is the top spec Lotus Club race car available and ours is fully optioned with the XTrac sequential gearbox and Shiftec paddleshift system. It also has Ohlins TTX adjustable dampers with front and rear anti roll bars and four pot calipers all round helping to control the 360bhp, extra assistance in this comes from a driver adjustable traction control system.
The Exige V6 won it’s first ever race in Lotus Cup UK in 2013 and finished runner up in the Brands Hatch 6 hour event in November 2013. track-group will be campaigning a number of these cars in Lotus Cup UK and Lotus Cup Europe in 2014 and our these cars are also available in exactly the same race trim for hire on track days and test days.
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 3-4drivers 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 wantto demonstrate a technique to you.
The hire feeincludes;
– 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 – £12,500
– 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 pitlane events with additional fuel subsidised at £1.00 per litre
track-club can arrange the booking of your preferred trackday and co-ordinate track fees, tuition, car hire and any other services on your behalf.
