Driven only one time - Lotus 21 Climax
Driven only one time - Lotus 21 Climax

The Lotus 21 Climax convinces with a 4 cylinder Coventry Climax engine and will be seen at the Austrian Historic 2022 at the Red Bull Ring!

The exciting thing about this Lotus? - It was only driven once! In 1961 it was redesigned for the Italian Grand Prix, but Jim Clark (F1 World Champion & Indy 500 winner) drove it only once and from there on no one else.

Jim Clark even led the Italian Grand Prix briefly with the Lotus 21 Climax, but he collided with the driver von Trips, who crashed. The Lotus was then confiscated by the Italian police and after it was released it was given by Lotus to the Donington Collection, where it remained for many years.

Seeing the Lotus 21 Climax in racing action at the Austrian Historic from June 10-12, 2022 at the Red Bull Ring is something we can't wait to see!
