Jim Clark in Lotus-Climax at II Gran Premio de Mexico (2nd Grand Prix of Mexico), October 1963

Summary

The Lotus Type 25, pictured here at the 1963 Mexican Grand Prix with driver Jim Clark, was one of Team Lotus owner Colin Chapman's most important designs. Despite its fragile appearance, the car's monocoque tub made it stronger than other Formula One cars of the time. Clark won 14 Grand Prix races, and the 1963 World Championship, with the car.
