4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid history of a true classic., 26 Oct 2002

This review is from: Lotus 25/33 (Hardcover)
Although the history of the epoch-making 25 and 33 has been covered extensively before this is (as far as I'm aware) the first book dedicated entirely to them. As such there's relatively little new material here - Tipler takes a swift no-nonesense view of ths development and racing history of the cars, and becomes rather more interesting when he discusses their fate outside Team Lotus.
Has some excellent and atmospheric b/w photography, enough anecdotes to spice up the tale, and solves a few historic mysteries. Perhaps lacks the spark a Doug Nye or Mike Lawrence would've brought to the subject but a useful prequel to Michael Oliver's book on the '49 and forthcoming book on the '72.

This review is from: Lotus 25/33 (Hardcover)
Let me tell you... This book goes as deep as you could possibly want. Everything is depicted in it with so much detail you can almost smell the rubber... A must buy for someone who wishes to know more about the first monocoque race car or classic F1 freak (me), a good read for Lotus fans.
