First thought was JPS - but that just shows that I liked their take on a pack of fags. In terms of motor racing, Lotus is Green and Yellow, Rarri is Red, yada yada. Its gotta be Green and Yellow :rtfm:

The colours that defined an era....:smoke:

(and I don't even smoke)

Sorry, Bibs. I just could not bring myself to reduce the pic's resolution---it would have been a sacrilege.

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

Black and gold has got to be most iconic but my fave is Essex, chrome red and blue....stunning!!!

Where is the option for Olympus Cameras? sofa.gifYes I know, it was with JPS wasn't it? That is one bit I always remember and even ended up buying the cameras so it worked! So I suppose it is vote for JPS...

My votes gone to the Green and Yellow brigade, that said I love the JPS colours, great era for Lotus too, it's time Lotus cashed in and produced a Senna themed car !!!

Currently having an illicit affair with another marque, be back in the fold one day... B-)

Great picture, John. Where did you get it?

A. The car is parked in my garage, and only driven on weekends.

B. I rented an SR 71 Blackbird, and flew into Hethel under cover of darkness to bag the shot.

C. My clone manages the following web site:

John's Online LOTUS Museum

D. I did a random google search of hundreds (well, a lot anyway) of pics to find the most dramatic depiction, and The Spanish Inquisition's best efforts couldn't weedle that information out of me, 'cause I forgets a lot these days.

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

I'm sorry but it has to be JPS.

It was that and The Spy Who Loved Me (in roughly equal measure) that started the love affair (although tonight I was reminded that TSWLM wasn't the first film that James Bond drove a Lotus in....) :detective:

Oh Yeah!

I'd like some people at Group Lotus to realise that very very soon somebody will sue their corporate ass if they intend on using the Green and Yellow, Black and Gold or White and Red in F1 cause these color schemes are the intellectual property of Team Lotus Venture whose currently owned by Tony Fernandes!:gathering:

Green and Yellow my favorite, but seen as Renault team are now to be sponsored by Group their cars will be green and yellow in 2011. So Tonys Team Lotus have been forced to use the iconic JPS colour scheme for 2011 still it will be nice to dust the moth balls off my old black and gold JPS anarak.Memories of Emerson, Ronnie, Mario, Gunner Elio and Ayrton !

Long live the true Team Lotus spirit Tony,Mike etc.....
