Indy was proud to be instrumental in the return (if only on a temporary basis) of the 1965 Indy 500 winner Lotus T38 from its current home at the Ford Museum in Dearborn MI to the UK for the Goodwood Revival Meeting.
The 1965 Indy 500, won by the legendary Jim Clark in the Lotus T38, was undoubtedly one of its most historic; it was the first time the race was won by a mid-engined car, a Ford engine, a British car and at an average of over 150 mph.
As part of the conditions of the Lotus/Ford partnership the winning car remained in the United States, but now returns to the UK as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Jim Clark’s first World Championship at the Goodwood Revival.
The Revival is the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting and the only event of its kind to be staged entirely in the nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s.
The vehicle was shipped in a purpose built airline pallet designed specifically for the vehicle.
