Checkered Past Racing Announces 2010 Schedule Including Monaco, Monza

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Chris Locke, proprietor of Checkered Past Racing and bone fide Lotus Nut, is looking to have a fantastic 2010.  Included in the schedule are trips to Monaco for the Historic Grand Prix, Monza to taste the World Championship-winning Lotus 79 ground effects at the Parabolica, and a couple of HMP starts with the new Rahal-run Historic racing group.

After successful runs in the Clive Chapman-run Lotus 32B (ex-Jim Clark Tasman 2.5 Liter F1 – pictured) including a  win at Algarve, Chris will be running that car again at other European venues, including Spa-Francorchamps.  He is also planning to run in the controversial SCRAMP-run new Monterey Historic and many of the standard HMSA and CSRG events that have been staples of his schedule for many years.  He will be running his Lotus 77 again in the Streets of Monte Carlo, which will be a highlight along with the Lotus 79 at Monza and Spa.

David McLaughlin once shared, “back when I was a dumb kid, I snuck into Monza – well, back in those days it was a lot easier to do these things, you see… and I found my way to the apex of the Parabolica.  I waved at the corner workers and they didn’t seem to care, so I stayed to revel in Jody Scheckter doing these phenomenal, perfect four-wheel drifts in the Shadow.  It was amazing to watch – and then here comes Andretti in the new Lotus, this aeroplane looking thing, and he goes sweeping around Scheckter on the outside! Wha!  I was amazed, and I turned to look down to the pits and I could see everyone scrambling, running around with their hands in the air, saying ‘Bloody ‘ell, what has Colin done this time?!'”

Indeed.  So Chris will get to experience Monza for the first time from inside that car.  Should be a fun year.
