I have been reading the June 2012 issue of Motor Sport and congratulate the editorial team on a really good issue.
Reading Doug Nye's excellent piece on the 1962 season I was interested to learn that the Lotus Type 24 was raced with a 4 cylinder Coventry Climax engine at certain times.
This was a time when I did not have access to much information in the way of motoring magazines (pocket money did not stretch that far) and I am interested to find out in what events this car participated and how it fared and who piloted it.

Thanks Roger.
It ran a good few events.
Now to try to find out its 'performance' in terms of lap times to compare it to the V8 engined car. Although Jim Clark was in the v8 in those events Trevor Taylor was at the time no slouch.
