Grand Prix Icon : Lotus 72.

The DVD tells the story of the Grand Prix car that raced for six seasons, something unheard of in today’s Formula 1.

Winning two Drivers' Championships in 1970 and 1972 with Jochen Rindt and Emerson Fittipaldi, plus a Constructors' Championship in 1973, the '72 rightly deserves the accolade as one of the greatest racing cars of all time.

This documentary features newly filmed interviews with drivers Emerson Fittipaldi and John Miles, Team Lotus Team Manager Peter Warr and a plethora of Lotus mechanics and luminaries.

Running across two discs, the first of which contains the main documentary with the second disc containing numerous extra items that didn't quite make it into the main programme.

Disc Two contains items such as John Miles explaining ‘anti-squat’ and ‘anti-dive’, Lotus truckie Vic McCarthy recounts the two Lotus transporter accidents of 1972, Beaky Sims and Herbie Blash tell us what the team had to do to get through scrutineering after the 1970 British Grand Prix win and saloon car legend Dave Brodie gives us twenty minutes of stories of his best friend Ronnie Peterson, this plus many more.

All of the library material in the programmes, stills and film, is previously unseen.

A short 90‐second excerpt from the DVD. This is Peter Warr and Emerson Fittipaldi explaining the new John Player Special livery.
A six minute excerpt from our exclusive interview with Team Lotus mechanic Jim Pickles. Jim was Emerson’s mechanic all through the championship winning year of 1972 and then into 1973.
