WHY THE NUMBER 20?   

The 195I Le Mans 24 Hour race was the 19th Grand Prix of endurance,

and took place on June 22nd and 23rd. Jaguar entered 3 x XK 120 C race cars. Lap 94 which was about six hours into the race brought car No. 22

to an end and car No. 23 also had to retire early.  Car 20, driven by Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead, then went on to win, giving Jaguar its most important Le Mans victory – it’s first in a long history of championship winning races globally for Jaguar Motorsport.

Jaguar Cars are close to my heart, I have great memorable times selling New & Pre-owned Jaguars back in 1994 for Henlys London the very first Jaguar dealers to be officially appointed as Jaguar Motor Agents – prior to this,  Henlys in 1929 specialised in Swift & Swallow Motor Cars which then became Jaguar Cars.

THE LEATHER

Our luggage is designed to carry enough items for your perfect weekend away, we pride ourselves in crafting our BRG Heritage Holdalls using the same highest quality ‘Bridge of Weir’ Scottish leather that Jaguar Cars choose as their luxury automotive hide – finished in dark British Racing Green.

Classic Team Lotus Type 25 Heritage Motorsport Helmet Bag 11THE COLOUR WAY DESIGN AND LOOK

Has been created with Jordan in close connection with Clive Chapman, Managing Director of Classic Team Lotus, and son of Colin Chapman, and is the latest creation in a 14-year official partnership between the two brands.

This latest Jordan Bespoke Helmet Bag takes inspiration from Colin Chapman’s Lotus Type 25 racing car, designed by Chapman for the 1962 Formula One season and famously raced by motorsports legend Jim Clark. The result is a holdall which celebrates this famous racing car, captures the spirit of the 60s, honours the memory of Jim Clark and applauds the engineering prowess of Colin Chapman.

THE LEATHER

Specially selected Scottish Bridge of Weir leather perfectly matches the iconic Team Lotus colour scheme of British Racing Green and yellow, the flawless nature of the hides reflecting the quality buyers have come to expect from Jordan Bespoke.

A plain white roundel echoes the livery of the Classic Team Lotus transporter which has become a recognisable emblem for Team Lotus. The number 8 remembers when motor racing icon Jim Clark crossed the line at Monza 1963. His Lotus Type 25 displayed the number 8, making history as he secured the drivers’ title with 3 championship races remaining.

As with all Simon Jordan creations, client-led bespoke options are available. In recognition of the time when car numbers changed from race to race, customers can choose to have their Helmet Bag customised with a number of their choice. An owner may choose a significant number to them, such as a birthday, or perhaps to depict the number displayed on their own racing car.

A subtle design feature of the Team Lotus Type 25 Helmet Bag is the monogram embossed on the zip pulls, luggage tag and matching key ring. The ACBC monogram was created by Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman who chose to incorporate his personal monogram within the original Lotus logo.

Classic Team Lotus Type 25 Heritage Motorsport Helmet Bag 14Jim Clark, one of the greatest drivers in motorsport history, is synonymous with the Lotus Type 25. Clark achieved 33 pole positions and won 25 races from his 72 Grand Prix starts in championship races. He was the master and I, the pupil Sir Jackie Stewart OBE said of Clark. Five times Formula One champion Juan Manuel Fangio once said Jimmy Clark was the greatest racing driver ever, and Ayrton Senna admitted He was my boyhood hero. He was the best of the best.

Simon Jordan Founder of Jordan Bespoke, said “Working with Classic Team Lotus and the Chapman family to create this Lotus Type 25 Helmet Bag was a genuine honour and privilege. Together we have created a luxurious leather item which respects the contribution Colin Chapman made to motorsport with the Type 25, and the unrivalled talent of its driver, Jim Clark. Despite its obvious motorsport connections, the offers a stylish bespoke piece of luggage to anyone who has an eye for detail and a passion for quality and design.”

Clive Chapman, Managing Director of Classic Team Lotus, said “Classic Team Lotus tries its best to celebrate the history of Team Lotus.  I am privileged to work together with an outstanding team of mechanics to preserve the famous cars that established the Lotus legend.  Classic Team Lotus is delighted to have joined forces with Jordan Bespoke to realise this practical and desirable holdall in the highest quality which captures the Team Lotus identity in such striking style.  I am confident it will prove to be an emblem of Team Lotus history which will appeal to proud Lotus enthusiasts worldwide.”

Classic Team Lotus Type 49 Heritage Motorsport Helmet Bag 10History of the Gold Leaf Team Lotus type 49

Few race cars are as celebrated as the Type 49. Yes, it won races and championships, but its real claim to fame is that it marked the debut of the Cosworth-Ford DFV engine. A compact 90 degree V8, it delivered 400bhp at 9,000rpm and would go on to dominate the Formula 1 grid for more than a decade.  To this day, the step change in engine power enabled the type 49 to achieve the greatest ever increase in F1 performance, year-on-year.

Lotus founder Colin Chapman was instrumental in the development of this power unit. He had a long association with Cosworth because its founders, Mike Costin and Keith Duckworth, had met at Lotus in 1957. The engine was developed in tandem with the Type 49, and so the powerplant’s integration as a structural element with the monocoque was highly efficient, lightweight, compact, stiff and strong.

The car made an impressive start, with Jim Clark winning in its first Formula 1 race, the 1967 Dutch Grand Prix. The Type 49 took every pole position for the rest of the season, and Clark won three more races to finish the season third overall. Renamed the 49T for the Tasman Championship of 1968, the Type 49 carried Clark to four wins and the overall title.

The year 1968 also saw Graham Hill victorious in the F1 Drivers’ Championship for Team Lotus. The car was now the Type 49B, featuring a slightly longer wheelbase and several other upgrades. The season included a victory at Monaco, a feat Hill repeated 12 months later in the same car – the only time that’s ever happened in F1 history.

The Type 49 is also famous for marking the debut of the iconic red, white and gold colours of Lotus sponsor Gold Leaf.  In 1970 Team Lotus applied this striking livery to its next revolutionary design, the Lotus type 72, which led to Jochen Rindt’s posthumous World Championship victory.

Gold Leaf Team Lotus number 10

In the days when race numbers changed from race-to-race, the number 10 is most significant to the Gold Leaf Team Lotus era.

Graham Hill’s victory at the 1968 Spanish GP laid the foundation for his Championship year.  A poignant victory for Team Lotus in the aftermath of the tragic death of Jim Clark.

Graham’s win in a gripping last race of the season in Mexico – on a day when three drivers could have been crowned World Champion – secured his second Drivers’ crown.

Coincidentally number 10 was on Jochen Rindt’s Gold Leaf liveried type 72 when he laid the foundation for his Championship year, by winning the Dutch GP at Zandvoort; the first of four wins in a row, which signalled the extraordinary dominance of the type 72 for years to come.

When we talk about attention to Details, Passion and Technical thought for the work we do, this latest item certainly covers these aspects that we are very proud of:

  • Printed Cotton Canvas: the outer panels – identical replica of the Carbon/Kevlar fibres of the type 88 monocoque measured to the exact dimensions of the original weave.
  • Printed Badge:  type 88 replica numbers badge printed onto Cotton Canvas end panels.

Classic Team Lotus has commissioned a Special Edition of 88 Helmet Bags.

Each Helmet Bag features:

  • Team Lotus Design & Registration plate, stamped with its unique ‘chassis’ number.
  • Copy of the hand-written Testing/Practise Log written by the Race Engineer of Elio de Angelis as he made history with the car’s first ever run on the 25thFebruary 1981, South circuit at Circuit Paul Ricard
  • Print of Colin Chapman in the cockpit of the car, giving a proud thumbs up for his latest creation

The Black & Gold weave was especially appropriate for the type 88 when, after the demise of Essex Petroleum, it was re-liveried in the iconic Black & Gold colours of sponsor John Player Special, in place of the original livery of blue, red and silver.

Classic Team Lotus has commissioned a Special Edition of 88 Heritage Helmet Bags

Classic Team Lotus is fiercely proud of Team Lotus having constructed the first Carbon composite automotive monocoque.  And the first to prove the concept, on track.  And the first to enter an F1 race, thereby revolutionising F1, once more.  The Team Lotus type 88 realised all of these firsts.

The Carbon/Kevlar fibres of the type 88 monocoque created a distinctive pattern, known affectionately as ‘Team Lotus tartan’.

This bespoke item of luggage HAND MADE IN ITALY recreates the distinctive criss-cross Carbon/Kevlar weave and features the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.

Lotus 88 and the British GP

The Lotus type 88 was a controversial design; not because of its composite monocoque but rather its even more radical twin-chassis concept.  The Lotus 88 was entered for the first three Grand Prix of the 1981 season, but did not make it beyond practice, due to scrutineers and organisers coming under pressure from the FIA.

Colin Chapman hatched a plan to enter the car for the 1981 British GP as a ‘B’ specification of the type 88, reasoning that the home Grand Prix for Team Lotus and Nigel Mansell, organised by the Royal Automobile Club, would be the environment in which his famous powers of persuasion would be most likely to succeed.

Team Lotus presented three type 88Bs for scrutineering and when they were passed it seemed like things were going to plan.  Then the FIA weighed in and threatened both Team Lotus and the RAC with extreme sanctions if the Lotus 88 was allowed to participate.  To Colin Chapman’s fury the battle was lost.

As the Team Lotus mechanics braced themselves for an ‘all-nighter’ to convert one of the 88s into type 87 specification, Colin Chapman insisted that the three 88s be lined up in the pit lane for a poignant last photo.

FEATURES

Embroidered Initials to match Stitching Colour, the leather had to be a Heritage Brown with focus on traditional old Italian look and feel that will age with style, we found the perfect match – It was important that the Helmet Bag could travel safely sitting on the top of a 4 -Wheel Trolley Cabin Case – supported by an extra leather panel on the back of the Helmet Bag allowing the retractable handle to go through adding additional support.

This stylish functional Helmet Bag has been designed to accommodate any size Helmet with a HANS device attached to the Helmet for ease of use at the circuit – outer zipped pocket for race licence, earphones & accessories.

QUILTED LINING

A trademark element of every Simon Jordan design is a vivid, extravagant interior lining that adds character and personality to every piece of luggage. The Black Italian flock quilted material used is the perfect look to complement the exterior styling.

We use Black original automotive seat belt webbing for the adjustable detachable Shoulder Strap.
