Little did I think that by introducing Ollie to Colin Chapman for a job interview in October 1970 that our paths, families, careers and lives would be so intertwined and so full of challenge, achievem

It is with great sadness that I have seen it announced (and my father informed me) that Lotus/Jaguar and TVR Stalwart, Ollie Winterbottom, has passed away. Ollie was my Godfather. He was not just

RIP Ollie 😭  Truly one of the more colorful and valuable threads in the Lotus tapestry. His book, A Life in Car Design is a must read. Thoughts out to his family, the Kimberleys and the many other families I'm sure he touched.

Very sorry to hear this - he was clearly a fantastic man and created some iconic and wonderful designs. Sad to hear he has gone to the great pub in the sky but what a brilliant legacy he leaves for us to enjoy. Once we are all out of the era of Covid, I hope to see a wedge re-union in his honour (perhaps with even lowly Esprit drivers like me allowed to attend). RIP.

For those yet unaware, the USLOT podcast that just dropped is dedicated to Ollie including reminiscences by MJK as well as two journalists who have owned and enjoyed his designs. 

At 1 hr 23 min, a larger than life podcast for a larger than life designer.
