There's one change we haven't made, though. We're using Pirelli Corsa tyres at the mo, but the Race Pack will also come with slicker, grippier Trofeo tyres. We head back to base, make the switch, and once again I appear to be driving a different car. The Race Pack Exige now feels far more harmonious. Sure, there's more cabin noise, but you can drive it harder into corners and the nervousness has all but vanished. It's now more of a track weapon: really agile, grippy and tight, free of inertia and chuffing rapid down the back straight at Hethel.
