Chris Dinnage is a Lotus lifer. He joined the team in 1982 and is now team manager at Classic Team Lotus. His only time away from Lotus grand prix cars was when he spent some time running a Sport Elise (pre-runner to the original Exige) for Group Lotus. He’s green and yellow through and through, and has driven more Lotus Formula 1 cars than anyone else. Who better to talk to about Ayrton Senna’s Estoril-winning Lotus 97T than the man who has looked after it and driven it for decades?
