Here is what I know about John Macdonald's Lotus 30/40.
Purchased from John Dean in the summer of 1967 (John tested the car at Silverstone prior to purchase).
Raced at the Tunku Abdul Raman meeting at the Batu Tiga circuit, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 3 September 1967. Dropped a valve in practice and the welded up piston only lasted a few laps in the race.
Raced the following weekend at the Johor GP at the Pasir Oudang circuit, Johor, Malaysia where it broke a front upright during practice. Teddy Yip kindly lent John a Lotus 22 for the race itself.
Raced at the Macau GP on 19 November 1967 but the car suffered a radiator leak on lap 2.
Used at the Motor Sports Club of Hong Kong (MSCHK) hill climb that you have already noted. It may have been used at another hill climb venue where John got FTD but I can't confirm this.
Raced at the Fuji 300 Yomiuri Asian Challenge Cup, Japan on 24 March 1968. I don't know the result but it was a DNF.
Sold in Japan to Mr. Schitzuwawa, who was an organiser of the above race. He put his own body on the car. John commented "thus replacing the only beautiful thing about it"!
