Table of Contents

In 1962 Colin Chapman introduces the monocoque to Formula 1; Full technical description from racing journals of the day; Race by race development, contemporary interviews with Chapman and Clark plus a retrospective assessment from Williams technical director Patrick Head; The mechanic's viewpoint from Dick Scammell; The brilliant 1963 season when Clark got a new Lotus 25 (chassis no. R4) and won seven of ten races - four in succession on the same set of race tyres; In 1964 R4 becomes Clark's spare car, is then raced by Peter Arundell and Mike Spence, loaned to Chris Amon, and sold to the Parnell Racing Team; Over the years the chassis is re-engined several times and descends the racing food chain; Finally discovered in New Zealand, it is meticulously restored and brought back to the UK to Goodwood historic events.
