Item Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1977 After initial problems in 1976, the Lotus 77 with an Italian and a Swedish driver started to be competitive in the latter half of the year. The design of the car was intended to allow as much flexibility as possible for the vastly different Formula 1 circuits. Success in 1977 is a distinct possibility.
1978 After initial problems in 1976, the JPS team are now back in the forefront of World Championship motor racing. The Lotus 77 was intended to allow as much flexibility as possible for the vastly different Formula 1 circuits.
1979 Team Lotus was formed in 1954 by Colin Chapman, a man who had made his name as a trendsetter in Grand Prix design. Chapman produced the Ford V8 powered Lotus 72 car which revolutionised motor racing by removing the water radiators from the front to the sides of the chassis, and brought the term 'wedge-shape' into motor racing design. Lotus dominated the 1978 Grand Prix scene with their superbly designed cars which took aerodynamic thinking a stage further by producing downforce through wings on the side of the car.

1980 Team Lotus was formed in 1954 by Colin Chapman, a man whose name has become synonomous with trendsetting in Grand Prix design. The Lotus 77 was intended to allow as much flexibility as possible for the vastly different Formula 1 circuits. Just like its counter-part this streamlined Scalextric model has superb handling characteristics and has proved itself a winner in many a Scalextric Grand Prix.

1981 The Lotus 77 was designed to provide as much flexibility as possible in view of the vastly different Grand Prix circuits. Like its counterpart the Scalextric model is well balanced and handles superbly on both fast and slow circuits.
