Lotus 30/L/16 Coupe, Ring-Knutstorp Sports Car Race, 30 Apr 1967

Lotus 30/L/16 in Coupe form in Sweden, 1967.

Heine Lindeström has been tracking down the history of this Lotus 30 which has been modified into a coupe. Heine says that the modification was done to meet racing class requirements. The photos are courtesy of Heine’s cousin, Magne Sjöström.

Heine writes: “Now I learned much more about the car, and have spoken to some preowners. When I have spoken to all of them i vill put it together and show it to you. I also have some nice color pictures from 68-69-70.

“One preowner showed me a film that was taken by a friend while he was racing the 30, around -70. It was now converted into video. Not so long but really nice to see it going.

“It’s car nr 16.”
