Is that Jim Clark's old Lotus type 25? (4th photo down, RHS)

Yes that's right, it won again last week at Goodwood driven by Andy Middlehurst, absolutely creamed the rest of the field. link to Youtube video

Many thanks for that it looks like it was a great day,  feel a bit gutted I couldn't go.

The photos brought back a few memories from when we (me and the old man) took the elan S4 SE up to the factory a long time ago. Accidentally met Clive at classic team lotus, bit different in those days, didn't know who he was but seemed thoroughly nice. I remember seeing the vx220 production line. But the highlight for me was having an indepth discussion about the Elise S2 suspension and tyre development whilst going sideways around the test track with a nice chap called gavan.
