Clark, Chapman, Indy winning 38, Ford GT40, and Old 999

I was reading a Blog post elsewhere bemoaning the fact that Lotus hired a rapper as marketing director and has a penchant for hiring Blist Celebs (C list in the case of the Baldwins) to be around when they show things off and seem to be spending too much time trying to make a brand that motoring enthusiasts don't like when they already have a rich history to rival the marques they are going up against. In the midst of the post were many pictues from Lotus' past on of which I never saw before and found really interesting.

This must be from some kind of Ford celebration of its motor raing successes. It shows Clark sitting in his Indy winning Type 38 with the Borg Warner Trophy aside them, Colin Chapman sitting on Henry Ford's Land Speed Record Old 999, and in the background a Ford GT40.
