Lotus 22 Race Car
The Lotus 22 was a Formula Junior racing car, built in 1962 by the British motorsport team Lotus.
The Lotus 22 was introduced in 1962 at the London Motor Racing Show. The London Motor Show was a major event for motorsport in the 1960s, and Lotus's team leadership used the event to promote new Lotus racing car models for the financially strong private sector. This was the 1962 Formula Junior car, with the Cosworth-tuned engine inclined in the frame and with disc brakes. During 1962 Lotus cars won twenty-four Formula Junior races.
Of the new car, 77 pieces were built, and was an evolution of the Lotus 20, which was presented a year earlier in London. As drive served as in the previous model, a motor Cosworth. Only Gerhard Mitter, who replaced his Lotus 20 with a 22, built a DKW engine as in his 20s.
Again, Lotus dominated the British championship. Peter Arundell started in 25 races, finishing 22 and winning 18 of them. The South African Brausch Niemann drove a 22 with a bored Cosworth engine in the South African championship in the winter of 1963/64 as a Formula 1 car.
