Goodwood FOS 2013 - Hill Run Crashes (Porsche & Lotus)

Re: 1986 Lotus 98T Formula One race car crashes at Goodwood

An evolution of the 97T, the Lotus 98T was developed for the 1986 Formula 1 season when it was driven by legend Ayrton Senna and Johnny Dumfries. The 1.5-liter turbocharged engine developed between 1,200 bhp (895 kW) and 1,300 bhp (969 kW).

In Senna's car the engine was mated to a conventional five-speed gearbox while in Dumfries' car it worked with a new six-speed transmission which proved to be unreliable. During the 16 races of the 1986 Formula 1 season, the Lotus 98T driven by Senna won the Spanish and Detroit Grand Prix.
