Lovely mugs that feature a Colin Chapman quote and a Lotus 72 which he designed.

The Lotus 72 solidified Team Lotus’s standing in Formula 1, continued their successes into the 1970s. With twenty race victories, two Drivers’ and three Constructors’ Titles, the Lotus 72 remains one of the most successful designs ever to grace the F1 starting grid. The car was immortalised through the famous Gold Leaf and John Player Special liveries and scintillating performances by drivers including Jochen Rindt, Emerson Fittipaldi, Ronnie Peterson and Jacky Ickx. Chapman’s design innovations were ripe as ever. The 72 featured inboard brakes which reduced unsprung mass. The move to side-mounted radiators in sidepods allowed for a more aerodynamic wedge profile resulting in higher top speeds. The overhead air intake, also featured on the 72, became a distinctive feature of the early 1970s era. The Lotus 72 was competitive for almost the whole of the five years it raced.

1970 Drivers and Constructors World Championship - Jochen Rindt
