  1. This looks rather like a very poor translation of a foreign language original.

    The Lotus Mk III was built to compete in the 750 Motor Club (NOT motorcycle club) 750 Fornula for sports cars (which had to have at least two seats, so it was NOT a single seater).

    This quote "It led to a request for copies (better B Mark III was built for Adam Currie, for example) and a copy of the previous Mark I." is misleading. The Adam Currie car was a MK III fitted with a Ford 1172 cc engine for the 1172 Formula. It had nothing to do with the Mark I.

    The 1st Mark III was built by the three partners Colin Chapman and Michael and Nigel Allen. The building of cars by a group of helpers came later with the Mk VIII in 1954.

    I really like what you have going here. Lots of information on a lot of subjects that I find interesting. I would like to tweet your blog and will be back again soon.
