Colin Chapman was a visionary and innovator
The legacy of Colin Chapman is enormous and cannot be underestimated in terms of motorsport and sports cars the world over. As you might expect Colin Chapman’s words were inspirational to many people, here are some of my favourite quotes from the great man;
“Adding power makes you faster on the straights. Subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere.”
Simplify, then add lightness.
Rules are for the obedience of fools and interpretations of smart men.
You won’t catch me driving a race car that I have built.
The secret of a successful marriage is not to be at home too much.
Money is how we keep the score in motor racing nowadays.
July 4 is the perfect day to relax. It also provides a very good chance to spend quality time with friends and family since everyone is able to get away from the hassles of everyday life, such as work.
