When Rob Widdows started his ‘Tales with Mechanics’ series on this website, one of the first names to be put forward was that of Bob Dance.

Dance worked for Team Lotus from the 1960s onwards and has plenty of stories to tell, as does fellow colleague Dave ‘Beaky’ Sims, who is still active with the Risi Competizione team in the United SportsCar Championship.

In this video from Gary Critcher they explain where ‘Beaky’ got his nickname, among other team members at Lotus in the ’60s. Hopefully we can hear more from these two in the near future.
