For­mula 1 duo to share Lo­tus Cortina

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Masters FIA His­toric For­mula 1 fron­trun­ners Steve Hart­ley and David Ab­bott have added a Lo­tus Cortina to their fleet and plan to race the car at the same events.

The car was a pe­riod race car in the US and has now been pre­pared by Nor­folk­based Mi­rage En­gi­neer­ing, the team re­spon­si­ble for their F1 cars.

“I’ve never driven any­thing like it and it is just a bit of fun,” said Hart­ley. “It’s pretty stan­dard at the mo­ment and it will take a bit of get­ting used to,” said the Ar­rows A4 racer. To date, Hart­ley has only ever raced sin­gle-seaters.

The two His­toric F1 rac­ers will be joined in the car dur­ing the sea­son by Brian Don­nan.
