What's the rearward visibility like in real life? I had an S2 Exige Performance Pack on order many years ago but cancelled it after a test drive, because of the absence of rearward visibility.
Here is a view out of the back of my one, way better than the view from an S2 Exige: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4nwWi_CXSQ
Thanks, but I presume that's an Exige 350 as opposed to the 410 or 430 with the louvred rear panel. What's that one like? I'm potentially considering an Exige 410 20th anniversary edition (and will test drive an Exige 410 or 430 reasonably soon).
Rear view on the 410 is rubbish, but you soon get used to it (no worse than a van!)

As above.

One option is to fit the AiM MX2E dash and option the rear camera

Nice work.

Not yet been round in a 410, but my 996 GT3 & Sport 380 where both 2nd through the chicane for me & I use 3rd for Lavant.

Are you investing in a track exhaust for your 410? You'll need it for Goodwood. The supercharger is the noisiest thing once you've quietened the exhaust, but there's not a great deal you can do to sort that.

So long as you stay below 4500rpm when the valves open. Above that you're way over.

Back at Thruxton again yesterday with OpenTrack. It's been 8 months since I've seen my parents so it was nice to take my dad out for a few leisurely laps in good weather. And yes, he did borrow one of my shirts for the day.

What was the noise limit @ Thuxton?

One I've never done - I thought they only did quiet days?

90db. You'll need the bigger 350mm cans to get on

Another cracking day the Ring. It was quite a busy TF at times but everyone appeared to be playing fair so no close shaves or scares to report.

A few more pics from Sunday / Monday















The only lap I managed to record with sound (mic appears to have died on me). 2nd lap of the day. 1st was wet, this lap was just drying out. Didn't get below 9m due to traffic on Sunday unfortunately.
