    Wow that corvette had a good top end didn't it. The Elise wasn't much better at the corners than the Corvette, which did surprise me, I thought the Elise would've charged passed in the corners.

    That's a cracking vid,

    I thought the Elise had him at one point, but as soon as they got on the straight there was only going to be one winner,

    I was really rooting for the lotus as well

    Was it just me, or did the Elise driver look like he was strolling around? Didn't sound like he was giving a good going?

    I know it's on video, so it's a different sensation, but I think our guy at Trax was giving it far more 'what for' than him? What do you think Andy?

    It adds more fuel to fire when you consider the corvette is a road going street car like you'd buy in the dealers, the elise is a full on racer. Whether the the Elise isnt going at 100%?? debatable. I know they didnt look like thery were fast at Trax but when youre actually in one and feeling the G's it a totally different perspective. I think hes just following the corvette round as a lot of the corners he could have had him easily, espeically after around the 2/3 point on the vid, But on the straights... theres only one clear winner there.
