this very nice lotus 22 formula junior is offered for sale on behalf of a friend of mine, who now feels too mature to drive a single seater race car fast.
the car was discovered in a warehouse in the south of vienna by a well know austrian lotus expert in the late nineties. For many moons it had sat there with a bent right front corner, a bit of bodywork damage and some parts already gone missing to grace other vehicles.
in 2000 this lotus 22 was purchased by the current owner who managed to rebuild it frame off between 2005 and 2013. this very thorough job was completed with many a part coming from peter denty and other english race car specialists.
now there is a strong running 1100cc holbay ford engine and willing hewland mk8/9 gearbox fitted. Great care was taken to use the right bits like chronometric rev counter, new girling ar/nr brake calipers, new wobbly web rims, new belts and much more.
up to now the car ran in about 12 hillclimb events in austria and czech republic. I has fia papers from 2013 and starts on the button.
a parts package and the original set of bodywork comes with this lotus 22.
