You may have noticed a recent Lotus advertisement claiming that Lotus have won more races than any other car, ever. Intrigued by this claim, I contacted the advertising agents in question to get details, eventually challenging them to substantiate the claim!
Admiring as we do the brilliant successes of Lotus, we cannot yield Bugatti’s pre-eminence without a struggle. He won 151 Grands Prix up to 1939, and obviously countless smaller events.
I will bet Lotus a bottle of champagne they can’t equal that.
