Jim Clark and Team Lotus: The UK Races
By William Taylor Foreword by : Jack Sears Photographs by : Peter Darley
From the award-winning publishers of the definitive photographic biography Jim Clark Life At Team Lotus, the latest volume from Coterie Press provides an evocative snapshot of the cars and drivers competing in a complete season of British motorsport. Detailing every major class and formula, saloons and single-seaters, it sees the legendary drivers such as Stewart, Hill, Gurney, Brabham, Surtees and McLaren competing hard against the formidable talent of Team Lotus and works supported drivers Jimmy Clark, Mike Spence, Jack Sears, Sir John Whitmore, Pedro Rodriguez, Brian Hart, Peter Revson and Ray Parsons.
Copiously illustrated with nearly 200 hitherto unseen photographs from the Peter Darley Archive, the book not only captures the unique atmosphere of the time but also lists the race results for every class in which Jim Clark competed and records the thrills and spills as they unfolded for Colin Chapman’s record breaking Team Lotus in 1965.
With new contributions from Jack Sears, Sally Swart (Stokes), Bob Dance and David Hobbs, 1965: JIM CLARK & TEAM LOTUS-THE UK RACES is not just an invaluable record of Jimmy’s early life and times but also a uniquely colourful depiction of an important period in British motor racing history. One which like many other Coterie publications is sure to become a coveted collectors item.
