Colin Chapman compete against the dominance of the Offenhauser racing cars at the "all-American" in Indianapolis in 1962, decisively supported from the Ford engineers. It should be one of the greatest successes of Lotus ever to win at the Indianapolis 500.

No, it does not work right away for Jim Clark and Dan Gurney in 1963 and in 1964, too, the fate seems not to be favorable for the Lotus Team due to problems with tyres, mechanics and team. After all, one creates a succès d'estime with the only car which persevere the full race distance.

After all, 1965, two thirds of the participating vehicles have mid-engine rear before the rear axle. One-third drives with Ford V8. To make it short, Jim Clark dominated the race and results in 190 of 200 laps and ensure with his victory also that this so far very American race is a little more internationalized. 04/12               Top of page               Index
