Snap of the day! – Reader’s insight of an ex-Team Lotus, Lotus Mk6.

At R&CC’s we love to hear your stories about your classics and the history behind them.  Ferg sent us in this lovely Lotus Mk6 which was originally built by Team Lotus for Alan Stacey. This was then followed by an Eleven, which then saw Chapman giving him Team Lotus backing at Le Mans and then a drive in the GP.

His final race was then at Spa in 1960, where he sadly died.

Ferg’s father-in-law then restored the Mk6 for Alan’s brother.

Thanks to Ferg Ranson for supplying the image and history
