For sale by owner:

Chassis No. 22-J-18 was purchased directly from the Lotus factory by Moises Solana of Mexico, who won 22 FJ races behind the wheel, making this one of the most successful FJ cars in existence. Moises’ success with the car against the likes of the Rodriguez brothers earned him several drives on the Lotus F1 works team alongside the likes of Jimmy Clark.

Only 77 Lotus 22 cars were built and they were highly successful in the hands of Lotus works driver Peter Arundell and private teams around the globe. The most notable differences from their predecessors were disc brakes on all four wheels, F1 type rear suspension and a lower center of gravity made possible by the 30° angle on which its Ford Cosworth engine was laid in the car.

Lotus 22-J-18 would be a welcomed entrant and strong competitor on the grid of all Formula Junior events and an ideal car in which to campaign the 2008 FJ season when the 50th anniversary of the formula is celebrated around the world.

Featured in several books and publications, Lotus 22-J-18 is a striking, significant and competitive car, the likes of which rarely come up for sale.
