Graham Hill driving a Lotus 49B at the 1969 German Grand Prix

Don’t you just love this old archival image from the 1969 German Grand Prix. A timely way to pay respects to Colin Chapman, who passed away 27 years ago today, the image features Graham Hill behind the wheel of a legendary Lotus 49B, possibly taken over the jump at the start of Pflantzgarten.

For more on the 1969 German Grand Prix check out this AUSringers post from July last year, which includes video footage from the race, won by Jacky Ickx in a Brabham. For more on the return of Lotus to the F1 grid in 2010, check out AUSmotive.com.
