Lotus 11 at Killarney Circuit

This really is a classic car, it probably boasts the smallest engine size at the annual classic and historic car race event, being only 750cc and a Coventry Climax four cylinder.

Di Dugmore is the driver, seen here talking to Eric Wells.

The Coventry Climax 750cc engine is said to be the idea behind the Rootes Car Co Hillman Imp engine which was sized to 875cc.

Used as fire pump engines, they are still to be found now and again.

Di Told Eric that the engine will pull just short of 6000 rpm down the back straight.
