This Is The Biggest Ever Gathering of John Player Special Lotus Formula 1 Cars



How do you launch a book on the greatest Formula 1 livery of all time? Well, you bring together the most cars in that livery every seen in one place, along with some of the people who worked on them in period. That’s what you’re seeing here, 15 John Player Special livery Lotus Formula 1 cars, gathered up by Classic Team Lotus in Hethel, UK to celebrate the new book “Black & Gold, The Story of the John Player Specials”. The cars, ranging from 1970 to 1985, included examples raced by Emerson Fittipaldi, Ronnie Peterson, Jacky Ickx, Mario Andretti, Elio de Angelis, Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna, and they were joined by legendary figures such as former Senna mechanic Chris Dinnage, now Classic Team Lotus workshop manger, long-time mechanic Bob Dance, who started out with Jim Clark, and even Mike and Anne Murphy, who ran the catering for the team (you’ll see them towards the bottom of this page, pointing up at their images on the huge banner of the team).

If that doesn't quicken your pulse, you don't have one.
