The architect of Team Lotus’ success from the ’60s through the early ’80s was of course Colin Chapman, but among the many who had an impact on the program was veteran designer Len Terry.
Terry has passed away, Classic Team Lotus reported Tuesday.
Terry was almost single-handedly responsible for designing the Lotus 38, which Jim Clark took to victory in the 1965 Indianapolis 500. The Lotus 38 followed after the previous generation Lotus 29 and 34.
After Lotus, Terry worked with Dan Gurney and helped him pen the Eagle chassis. Gurney’s famous 1967 Belgian Grand Prix victory is the only one by an American in his own American chassis in Formula One history.
