Saturday, Sunday Special Podcast # 399

F1weekly visits Classic Team Lotus in Norfolk, England.

First of all I would like to thank Ms Sapphire Nichols of Classic Team Lotus and our long time listener and friend Peter Brazier for making this possible.

In the first part we will have my conversation with Clive Chapman, son of Lotus founder Colin Chapman, and in the second part we have a chat with Bob Dance, gentleman who prepared cars for Jim Clark and other great legends that drove for this fanstastic team.

In the history of motor racing, there are some names that will live forever—Alfa Romeo, Auto Union, Bugatti, Maserati, And of course Lotus. The black and gold JPS Lotus is a classic for all times.

Colin Chapman was one of the great original thinkers of Grand Prix motor racing.

Moss, Clark, Hill, Rindt, Fittipaldi, Peterson, Andretti and Senna all won in Lotus F1 machinery.

His son Clive is now preserving the rich heritage of this great marque. I would like to thank him very much for his time and sharing wonderful memories, how many school kids can claim they were picked up from school by a Formula 1 world champion.

They have a very nice website www.classicteamlotus.co.uk and please take a look.
