This is a comprehensive survey of Lotus's racing history, covering the extraordinary range of sports-racing and single-seater cars designed by Colin Chapman and his disciples.

Grand Prix machinery predominates, with landmark machines such as the 25 (the first monocoque), 49 (the start of the Cosworth-DFV period), 72 (wedge-shaped with side radiators) and 79 (the all-conquering ground-effect design). Into the narrative are woven the memories of Lotus Formula 1 drivers, and an insiders view of the innovations for which Chapman was personally responsible and those credited to him but derived from others.

Victory Lane, December 2006

“This full chronicle of all the sports racing and formula cars is well done and technically well researched and presented.”
