I've wanted to share this part of Norfolk for a while, the trouble is that the location is very difficult to film, there's a lot of security on site, visitors are forbidden to take cameras or their telephones with them to the site. A high fence and tall leylandii trees separate the site from the curious or determined onlookers.

It's here, those of you into motoring and fast cars will know where I've been scouting this evening.

Today has been brief periods of sunshine and then showers, all accompanied with strong, gusty winds. One thing that flying a drone has taught me is that the summer midday light in the UK is uninteresting outside...flat, so you are better off getting up early or shooting later in the evening.
Fighting wind warnings of yellow and red, I managed just one panoramic..

The site is a yellow zone due to a helipad, though I've not seen any flights recently...so extra care needed too. Here's the HDR image

Tempted to go back when there is a track day, though filming from the road, a public highway, I think the car maker might not be amused.

You can just about see the outlines of the runways here, I think, from the days of RAF Hethel.

Me too, I’ve seen their security, but if I’m not on their property and stay more than 50 metres away....we’ll see!

Haha, yes, me too, but that has been kept very well hidden,  I live close by and you often see their cars in some guise on the local roads, but not this new electric hyper car.

Their CTO was busted for speeding on the local dual carriageway ( not quite a motorway ) in an Evora I think. The locals were thinking geez, it’s a Lotus and he should be driving it like he stole it...
