Breach of Copyright?[edit]

There’s something strange with the Lotus 63 pic in this article. A user, who declares to be 24 years old on his user page, declares also to be the author of a pic that has been taken in 1969… RX-Guru 18:45, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

It's not impossible that the picture was taken in a historic race during the last 10 years, but it is extremely unlikely! Spiderlounge 21:48, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
The pic is taken in typical 1960–1970s style, due to mainly lack of high quality tele lenses by then. I think it is a scan from a book or mag, especially as no higher res is available. And in historic races nowadays the drivers usually wear modern overalls and helmets. By the way, I did about 95% of the part called "Allradantrieb im Autosport" in the 4WD article of the German Wiki. Only a couple of days ago I’ve found this article here. I also included the pic there but removed it yesterday again, due to the unclear situation of its copyright. Here one can find a "safe pic" of the Lotus 63 4WD (driven by Mario Andretti) that has been taken in 1969 and uploaded recently by a friend of mine. RX-Guru 10:33, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

The Future section[edit]

The section on "The Future" in this article is currently completely uncited. I removed it as original research earlier today, but it was replaced without an edit summary. I've tagged it as original research, and will remove it in the near future unless some sources are forthcoming. Cheers --Pak21 18:28, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

I think I found this in an article from F1 Racing "Green" suppliment, although what may lead you to think it's original research is a) I'm useless at citing my sources... and b) my original wording - I think I said "it has been sugested" - seems to have been changed to "it can be expected", which is a very different meaning, and not strictly true. Anyway, I'll see if I can find the source and tidy this bit up. Spiderlounge 19:52, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

BRM P67 (1964)[edit]

This is often referred to as BRM 670P in its later hillclimb incarnation? Rupertlt (talk) 22:19, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
