Year Information: Team Lotus was formed in 1954 by Colin Chapman, a man who had made his name as a trendsetter in Grand Prix design. Chapman produced the Ford V8 powered Lotus 72 car which revolutionised motor racing by removing the water radiators from the front to the sides of the chassis, and brought the term 'wedge-shape' into motor racing design. Lotus dominated the 1978 Grand Prix scene with their superbly designed cars which took aerodynamic thinking a stage further by producing downforce through wings on the side of the car.
