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 insider's view of the innovations for which Chapman was personally responsible and those credited to him but derived from others.
