My lovely husband presented me with 40 postcards for my 40th birthday, each with a different challenge. One of them was ‘drive a 2 seater sports car’. I love driving, but have spent my entire adult life behind the wheel of various compact hatchbacks. As much as I may aspire to a sports car, you can’t fit baby seats in the back.
We have friends with suitable vehicles but I wouldn’t borrow one for fear of scratching it, denting it or even breathing on it wrong. Which is why I found myself at the Lotus factory in Hethel, Norfolk, for their ‘Elise Experience’.
