Description

The Lotus 98T was the 1986-season, JPS-liveried F1 car driven by Ayrton Senna and team-mate Johnny Dumfries. Senna took eight podium positions, including two wins in the car, taking the fight to the superior McLarens and Williams. The 98T was one of the ultimate incarnations of an F1 car, powered by a Renault V6 turbo engine, which is conservatively estimated to have produced up to 1,300bhp at full boost. Senna was mighty to behold at the wheel of the 98T - he took pole position at eight of the season's 16 races, with victories in Spain and Detroit, famously crossing the line alongside Nigel Mansell in Spain, to win by 0.014s. This Manual, extensively illustrated with both period photographs and technical illustrations and photographs of a recently restored car, provides a fascinating insight into the design, evolution, operation, maintenance and restoration of the Lotus 98T.

The author

Stuart McKay learned to fly on a Gipsy Major-powered Beagle Terrier 2 in 1963 and three years later commenced building a Jodel D.9 which made its maiden flight from Heathrow in 1969.  In 1970 he acquired the redundant Tiger Moth glider tug F-BGJE, but pressure of work meant that it was not flying again until 1997, registered as G-AZZZ. He is Founder and Secretary of the de Havilland Moth Club and is also Editor of the Club magazine ‘The Moth’. In recognition of his services to the Club he was awarded the Bronze Medal of the Royal Aero Club in 1984 and appointed MBE in 1997. He is perhaps the world’s leading expert on de Havilland Moths.
