As Mike said, great shots.  I just can't get over how much the cars changed in a relatively short time between Clark & the JPS specials. The rate of change is probably similar now, but just not as obvious and these comparison shots really bring it home.

I second that.  Please keep these beautiful images coming... Where did they
 come from?  Are you some kind of a god or something?
Yes, it's work...   No, I don't mind it.

Hi guys,

i have found a nice picture from the world championship winning season 1963 :trophy: and one from 1967. The first shows the grid of the 1963 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. You can see Jim Clark in his Lotus 25 Climax in the first row (number 4). The second Lotus driver was Trevor Taylor (row 3, number 5).

The other picture shows Jim Clark drifting in his Lotus 49 through Becketts, Silverstone, in 1967.

I think, it should be no problem with copyright, if the pictures are just linked, is it?

Are we sure these pictures aren't copyright? Seems to me they might be......

That 1963 starting line grid photo is great. You can just feel the anticipation of the coming battle in the air. What a great time for racing and race car innovation. The racing was still raw (albiet very dangerous) and big money was still quite a way off. These people were truley in it for the love of the game. Wonderful stuff. Unfortunately I couldn't view the photo of Clark in the 49; corporate net nanny stepped in :P

Glad to see the thread has had some activity. I will soon post another follow up to the Iconic Lotus 49...To the fortunate few, who had the skills to drive this great car in competition. As a preview, I leave you with this classic shot of Jim Clark.

Cool Photo. Nice detail shot of the DFV abd rear suspension details. I'll soon be looking for 49 photos for an upcoming model project. I'll have to keep this one in mind. Cheers.

 Although overshadowed by Clark at Lotus, Graham Hill bore the brunt of development work on the 49 with the new Cosworth power plant. Here shown during the morning warm up at it's debut at Zandvoort.ld

I will call this one "Ice cream"... Gentleman Jimmy offers the lady a refreshment.

Great picture. I dare say I'd offer her some of my ice cream too.

What I'm really grooving on, though, are those Lotus coveralls worn by the mechanics. I'would love to get my hands on a set of those... 44 regular, please.

Trevor, Have you seen the items on the Classic Team Lotus web site? I'm sure they can do something for you. I have the JPS all black and the Classic green team shirts from them. Well made, and are great when going to a show or event.

Yeah I have the Classic Team Lotus Jacket from the Classic team website. Very nice jacket and I love it! People always ask me who is the guy is on my arm... I tell them its Colin Chapman throwing his hat in the air after a F1 win, then they ask who is that and what is F1 and I just shake my head haha

Great pictures, really enjoyed looking at them. Bob Dance is the man too, I got his autograph on my Lotus hat I got at LOG 33.
