This excellent book covers the Team Lotus Turbo years, from 1983 to 1987, featuring in particular Ayrton Senna’s three years with the team from 1985 to 1987.  It tells the story, in great detail of how, in the aftermath of the untimely death of Colin Chapman, the team was able to fight its way back into the winner’s circle.

Johnny Tipler was given unrestricted access to the Classic Team Lotus archives and he interviewed many people involved in F1 at the time and in Team Lotus in particular. This book draws on a wide variety of first-hand sources to describe the atmosphere and politics within F1 and the team.

As a benefit of buying direct from the team, Classic Team Lotus is pleased to include with each book an Estoril 1985 victory postcard, Estoril win decal, Camel Team Lotus Honda decal and driver signature cards.

This book has 224 pages and a mixture of colour and black and white pictures
