[About the actual vehicle]
――The 99T is a machine developed by Lotus in the 1987 Formula 1 series.
――It was a big feature that it was equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine such as V6, and was equipped with an active suspension controlled by a computer and hydraulic pressure.
――The idea of active suspension, which detects the unevenness of the road surface with a sensor and actively moves the suspension to maintain the proper posture with the road surface at all times, had a great influence on the subsequent machine development.
--Team Lotus fought the season in the 1987 season with two drivers on the Lotus 99T.
――One is Satoru Nakajima, who attracted attention as the first Japanese regular F1 driver, and the other is Ayrton Senna.
――Ace driver Senna won the Monaco Grand Prix in the 4th round of the season.
――It was the first time for Senna and Honda, an engine supplier, to conquer Monaco.
