Sir Jackie Stewart took to the Goodwood hillclimb course on Saturday afternoon in the Lotus 38 made great by his close friend and rival, Jim Clark. The quad-cam Ford V8-powered machine claimed the Indianapolis 500 in 1965 and it had been a museum exhibit for most of the past 45 years. Recently reanimated by Clive Chapman’s Classic Team Lotus concern, this highly-original single-seater is one of the most significant racing cars ever made, having ushered in rear-engined designs at The Brickyard. It also has a 100 per cent win rate. The racing knight was later reuinited with the Tyrrell 006 in which he claimed his third and final Formula 1 World Championship to round out a busy day at the 2010 Festival of Speed.
