Books - Colin Chapman, Inside the Innovator (Author: Ludvigsen)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine weight 1.8kg by Karl Ludvigsen
Colin Chapman is one of the most influencial and controversial figures in the history of motorsport, being credited for a great many innovative ideas that may or may not have been his to start with. Here Karl Ludvigsen delves into his own extensive archives and speaks to many of those directly involved with Chapman and Lotus over the years to create an in-depth study of the man and the machines created by his company. The story is split not chronologically but topically, with chapters on concepts, transmissions, suspension, structures, aerodynamics, downforce and Chapman's management and throughout there are excellent images used to illustrate the points discussed. Many of these are original sketches and drawings and these help to further even the keenest amateur engineer or mechanic's learning. Excellent.
Over the years we have created a library here at GPM and many collectors regularly ask us which books we use most and which are the most reliable source of information. We offer quality titles selected for their reference material content.
