Take yourself back to what many refer to as the greatest era of open-wheel racing; the days when legendary racers Jim Clark and Graham Hill piloted the Lotus Type 49 to seemingly countless victories. Clark and Hill were the very best at their jobs, and the Type 49 represented the cutting edge of design technology. After a period of difficulty in the 3.0-liter formula, Colin Chapman went back to the drawing board. Chapman made the next step forward and convinced Ford to build an F1 engine. The result would be the Ford Cosworth DFV and an advanced chassis using the engine as a stress-bearing structural member. Since then nearly all Formula One cars have been built this way and the Cosworth DFV would become the engine of choice through the 1970s. The 49 could be a handful to drive, with the power of the Cosworth V8 delivering bursts of power that even Graham Hill had reservations about. Take your throttle control to the next level and give the Brabham BT24 something to fight with on equal ground with one of Colin Chapman’s major advances in race car design.
