A Little About My Insight

Postby theinsightfullone » Mon Sep 17, 2007 6:45 am

Hi all,

I have an Insight, bought it 4 years ago as the commute up to Williams F1 in Oxford where I was a designer, from Bristol was costing a bomb.

Now I have the little car I can't see me parting with her ever, she's a star.

I recently started doing time trials called 'Autsolos' in her.

Basically it involves a circuit, marked out with cones & you have to negotiate the circuit in the fastest possible time, whilst avoiding the cones.

The last one I did a couple of weeks ago I acyually won my class & came 3rd overall.

Full results here

& some pics of an Auto solo I did earlier in the year here

Excellent. We should do something like this at the Electrathon next year! :)

We hold it at the Haynes motor museum in Sparkford. It was a great day, even if I got told off for my Prius driving... :roll:

The motorbikes weren't happy when I accidentally cut the last corner... I was driving the Prius like it was about half the width - the width of my EV! :)

Happily I hope, a meeting of minds and eccentric enthusiasts, like all of us on here :)
