Lotus 24

This car competed in the Innes Ireland Trophy Race for Pre-1968 Grand Prix and Tasman Cars at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1997.
It's Ric Weiland's 1962 Lotus 24, a car of conventional spaceframe design that was intended to be sold to private entrants whilst the Lotus team used the new monocoque Lotus 25. In effect Jim Clark drove a Lotus 25 but his team-mate Trevor Taylor used the Lotus 24 for most of the season.
This is Trevor Taylor in his Lotus 24 returning to the paddock on practice day for the British Grand Prix at Aintree in July 1962.
