That beast was at goodwood last year and my son who is a race mechanic said it was the most dangerous car he had ever seem ,and while i appreciate the lateral thinking that went into it from smokey yunnick (apparently no less a luminary than colin chapman paid a lot of attention to it ) it is S^8t your pants scary
That thing the driver sits in seemed no more than a bucket seat screwed to the side of the car ,any side impact and you are brown bread
i think the guy who drove it was bobby johns ,he must have had nads like coconuts
It was Bobby Johns. He was Clark's teammate in 65 in the second Lotus at Indy - some think he was chosen because was the same size as Clark and if Jimmy had trouble he could replace him - he finished 7th at the 500 after a really bad pit stop. He had two NASCRAP victories and two top ten finishes at Indy.
In Naples, there's a popular tradition of divining dreams in order to get the 'winning numbers' for the lottery (lotto). The reference book is called 'La smorfia'.
In the picture, Bobby Johns drives car n.47. In the above said 'book of dreams', 47 is 'the dead'...
