Classic Team Lotus type 91/5 comes alive again
26/03/14 - On behalf of Classic Team Lotus customer Greg Thornton, Classic Team Lotus has spent the winter re-instating the original composite chassis back in to the 1982 Team Lotus type 91 chassis number 5.
It is always a special moment at the workshop when a car comes alive again, so we captured the moment from last Friday afternoon when lead mechanic Ted Fiddy fired her up, with colleagues Kevin Smith and Tim Gardner keeping a close eye on proceedings..
91/5 ran in period with pull rod front suspension and the related, small styling change makes this particular type 91 look even more beautiful.
Greg will be defending his Championship title, so keep an eye out for him at the eight scheduled Masters Series events during 2014. (Visit the Racing Calendar section on the Classic Team Lotus website for further information.)
