This Lotus 21 raced once before being confiscated by Italian police

First published on September 14th 2014.

The Lotus 21, driven by Tony Best in the Glover Trophy, was raced only once in period. Jim Clark completed around three laps of the 1961 Italian Grand Prix at Monza before being involved in an accident which tragically resulted in the death of Ferrari driver Wolfgang von Trips and fifteen spectators. The car was impounded by the Italian authorities and not released for around four or five years.
