pC2 - Bannochbrae (Scotland) - Lotus 40 - PRO AI race

Jose Ortiz
Completed in the Summer of 1965, this was the first of three Lotus 40s built. Mike Spence placed it on pole at its debut but failed to finish due to overheating issues. It was subsequently raced by Jim Clark and by American Richie Ginther in the United States, but with little success. It returned to the UK some years later and was eventually abandoned. In recent years it was completely restored by Peter Denty and was exercised by its owner during the 2007 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
