Books - Lotus 18, The Autobiography of Stirling Moss` `912` (Great Cars #10) (Authors: Wagstaff)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 18, The Autobiography of Moss’ ‘912’ Weight 2.5kg by Ian Wagstaff The Lotus 18 holds an important place in the history of the marque and of Grand Prix racing as in the hands of Stirling Moss an example gave Lotus their first GP win and the type was driven by a great many different drivers including John Surtees who made his GP debut in one. Moss’ 1960 Monaco win is shown in here but it is the second car supplied to Rob Walker with which Moss won again in the principality, chassis 912, which is the focus. The full history of the car is covered, from that win at Monaco and one in Germany which followed, the car now clothed in later Lotus 21 bodywork, on to the following seasons when it was run by Count Volpi’s Scuderia SSS Republica di Venezia and then in other private hands. The car has since been restored and is enjoying a career in historic racing and this is covered too. There are also profiles of and memories from many of the key people involved, drivers, team owners and mechanics. As always with this series, fascinating stuff.
