A few more from the cavalcade.
1965 Lotus 33 - World Championship winner. I've seen this particular car race for a good few years in historic racing but at last they have the correct type wheels and tyres fitted.
1965 Lotus 40 - I know it shouldn't be on this forum but it is a wonderful car. The passenger reminds me that DSJ was driven round Brands Hatch in this car by Clark back in the day.
1961 Lotus 21 - I've seen this actual chassis in the Donington Collection before but it has now been sold and is in running condition again. This is the 1961 Italian GP car only used for that one race.
1967/68 Lotus 48 - Formula 2 car. This is the last surviving chassis of this type.
This is just to show how friendly the folks are at Goodwood
(I wouldn't have put this in, but I think it is Jim Clarks old Cortina )
Nigel's fantasy is obviously to be a US Army Air Force pilot, circa 1943. Yes, the officer in that picture is Nigel, looking very happy.. and why not?
Note: Nigel sent me this picture, and I couldn't resist posting it.. even though there is no car in it.. not even a Cortina.. I promise not to do it again. But I think Nigel had more fun at Goodwood then he has let on!
