Chassis number : 18J817

Share on:

Lotus 18s raced in Formula One, Formula Two, and Formula Junior classes in the day. Placement was determined by engine displacement and configuration. Lightweight, strong and simple, Lotus 18s quickly dominated in all the races they appeared in.

This 1960 Lotus Type 18 Formula Junior is powered by a Ford-Cosworth engine with Dual Weber DCOE-40 Carburetors producing 105 horsepower at 7500 RPM. It has a Renault gearbox, an independent suspension, Lotus Magnesium wheels and Dunlop Racing tires.

It was imported in 1960 by West Coast Lotus dealer Jay Chamberlain, and sold to Team Rosebud in Texas.

In 1961 it was traded back to Jay for a new Lotus 20 Formula Junior. The car has raced on the west coast for most of its life.

Judy and Bill Morton actively campaigned the car in vintage races from 1984 to 1996, including the Southern Festival of Speed in New Zealand in 1991.

In January 2002 Jack Fitzpatrick restored the car and has been driving it at CSRG, HMSA, and General Racing events.

In 2005 Jack raced it at the Mont Tremblant Circuit in Canada, and at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

Places 1st in Class at the Serrano Concours d'Elegance in 2007 and 2nd in Class at Road and Track Concours d'Elegance in downtown Elkhart Lake in 2005.
