The Lotus 72 was raced from 1970 to 1975, which is remarkable longevity for a Grand Prix car, even in the 70s, although by 1975 it was way behind. Jochen Rindt drove it in the 1970 season and won the championship posthumously after his tragic death in practice at Monza. In the 1972 season Emerson Fittipaldi became the world’s youngest champion driving the 72 with its new, iconic John Player Special livery.
I took this picture at the 2007 Martini Legends event in Barcelona, where Fittipaldi actually drove this car again on the famous Montjuic Park circuit, albeit at a much slower pace than in 1973!
I played a bit with the color saturation, etc. and I think it came out pretty cool!
