Clark’s world championship-winning Lotus 33 to make public return
The Lotus 33 raced to the 1965 F1 World Championship by Jim Clark will be on show at Race Retro as it makes its first public appearance for over 40 years.
Clark took the 1.5-litre Coventry Climax-powered chassis R11 to victory in the Belgian, British, German and Syracuse Grands Prix on the way to his second World Championship.
After being raced with BRM power by Graham Hill in 1966, R11 was sold to a privateer in Canada and is thought to have had its last race in the 1969 Seattle 200.
The car was then dismantled and stored before returning to the UK in 1978 when acquired by its current owner. It was in storage for 38 years but is now back together ahead of a sympathetic refurbishment by Clive Chapman and the Classic Team Lotus crew.
