    The Golden Age of Motor Racing - "The Lotus Story" - 16 Parts

    The story of Lotus began in 1948 and founder Colin Chapman and his cars became synonymous with GP racing. This comprehensive film features interviews, archive action footage, racing greats and is a superlative record of Lotus' GP history. It explores all the major races and personalities of the era are featured, including Moss and Surtees at the 1960 GP de Monaco, the 1960 Le Mans 24hr race and the 1962 Goodwood Easter meeting. Throughout the program you can also hear from major players of the era. It features Clark's battle against the surprising Brabham resurgence and the strengthening of the link between Lotus and Ford with the Mark 1 Lotus Cortina. It details the development of the Type 72 - the most successful GP car of all time until 1986, the Lotus 78, which showed the way ahead in producing a true 'grounds-effect' car and the 'Black Beauty' Lotus 79.

     +1!  I've always liked Lotus but never dug into the history and heritage until lately thanks to all your posts and info on the brand. Smiley


    Re: The Golden Age of Motor Racing - "The Lotus Story" - 16 Parts

    My love for science and technology was fueled also by what I read when I was a child about Colin Chapman, Ferdinand Porsche, Enzo Ferrari, etc... And of course the drivers: Ascari, Fangio, Prost, Senna, etc.

     

    Anyway, I love Lotus since I was a kid.

    The only reason I didn't bought an Elise so far is because lack of a service in my country.

    There is no try. Just do.
