But not all in the same year!  Was it not the 2nd attempt Lotus and  Jimmy 
Clark had at the Indy when they won it?

I wonder  how many remember the hue and cry in 1965, when
Jimmy Clark came to  Indianapolis with his green Lotus-Ford?   Some drivers
threatened  to boycott the race, and many snickered at Clark and Colin
Chapman for  having the engine mounted in the REAR of the car, of all  places.

The Flying Scot, of course, showed them all, not only  with the BRG paint,
but also becoming the first driver with a rear-engine  car to win it all.
BRG was suddenly the "in" color for sports  cars.
