Classic Team Lotus helps celebrate 60 years of F1

Classic Team Lotus manager Chris Dinnage celebrates F1 heritage

Three classic Lotus Formula One cars made the long journey to Bahrain to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of the sport.

A total of 21 championship winning cars took to the track at the opening race of the 2010 season.

Classic Team Lotus, who are based at Hethel near Norwich, appeared alongside some of the finest cars in Formula One history.

The cars were on display before the season opener on Sunday, 14 March 2010.

Lotus returned to the F1 grid for the first time in 16 years with drivers Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli at the wheel.

Despite a 16-year break from the sport, Lotus were at the forefront of some of the most innovative moments in the sport's history.

"The innovations Colin Chapman brought to F1 with his designs were pioneering and they led the way to grand prix victories," said Chris Dinnage, team manger at Classic Team Lotus.
