Team Lotus was the legendary, innovative Formula 1 constructor organization formed by the brilliant Colin Chapman and his favorite driver, Jim Clark. The author’s maturation as an F1 fan dates from the end of the 1986 season, when Aryton Senna left Lotus to drive for McLaren and begin his run of three world championships. Lotus itself declined into mediocrity and bankruptcy, until the name was revived for the 2010 season. This photo is from the first-ever gathering of all 35 Lotus F1 cars.
The recent gathering of all 35 types of Lotus Formula One car for the first time has led to a limited-edition run of commemorative prints.
