Team Lotus loses Willy Cowe

25th Aug 2022: Sad news today that we lost long-time stalwart of Team Lotus in the 60s, Willy Cowe. Never one to give praise when it wasn't due, Bob Dance who worked with Willy for many years told us Willy was, "a jolly good chap to work with, one of the best all-rounders in the team." High praise indeed.
