dutch 33

it doesn’t get any better than this …

a factory Lotus-Climax 33 in the pits at Zandvoort, 1965 Dutch Grand Prix

the 33 was introduced at the end of ‘64, but fully bloomed when it was used in the ‘65 championship, winning 6 Grand Prix in the hands of Jim Clark
by ‘66 & the introduction of the new 3 litre engine rule the fine chassis suffered from underpowered engines & it wasn’t until Chapman introduced the 49 with the all new Cosworth DFV that Lotus refound its winning ways
no doubt however that the 33, an evolution of the 25, was one of the greatest chassis Lotus ever manufactured
