For sale : 1966 Lotus 41 – Chassis 12b being sold with an invitation to race at the 74th Goodwood Members Meeting in March 2016
This 1966 Lotus 41 F3 Screamer raced in period against all the heroes of the day; Derek Bell; Ronnie Peterson; Peter Gethin; Clay Regazzoni amongst others and at all the main events including Monaco, Monza, Pau, Hockenheim and Jarma.
Chassis 12 b was first delivered to Jean Blanc (Swiss) in 1966. Jean campaigned the car throughout 1967 and 68 mostly privately entered but also listed under Ecurie Leman and Jurg Durbler Racing. His best performance was 3rd place in Germany (Eifelrennan), 14th in Spain (Jarma) and 14th at Magny Cours just one place ahead of Francois Cevert.
In 2008 Goodwood honoured Bell with a F3 Revival demonstration on track, when Derek Bell actually drove this very car around Goodwood.
In 2010 it was invited and competed in the 2010 Monaco Historic and in 2014 it was acquired by the current owner, who commissioned a full and exacting restoration by Simon Hadfield in consultation with Peter Denty.
Since the rebuild, the car completed a test at the hands of Simon Hadfield and raced just once at the 2015 Goodwood Members Meeting by the current owner.
Lotus 41 Chassis 12B is now offered for sale in ready to race condition and with an invitation to enter the 74th Goodwood Members Meeting in 2016 that can be transferred with the new ownership. The owner also has a team lined up to prepare and run the car at Goodwood if required.

From Lotus F3 History:
The Lotus 41 arrived on the F3 scene in 1966 the result of an evolution of the Lotus 22/31 space frame design. It was stiffened with sheet steel paneling around the pedal box and the undertray. With front and rear steel bulkheads and solid engine and gearbox mounts to help rigidity. Results of the season were mixed. Piers Courage won 5 races and took the French Championship but in the UK Jackie Oliver and Derek Bell got good results in their Lotus 41’s but Brabham were stealing all the top step awards.
