Picture above taken by Bernard Cahier: Trevor Taylor with Lotus team boss Colin Chapman, for whom he was racing, at Spa-Francorchamps in 1962.

He finished second in the 1962 Dutch Grand Prix (picture below), his only F1 podium finish of his career. Taylor scored a total of eight championship points.

One more highlight: At the end of 1962, Taylor shared with Scot Jim Clark the car and victory in the non-championship Mexican Grand Prix in a Lotus.

Interesting: Trevor Taylor is credited with inventing the yellow stripe that ran down the middle of Team Lotus cars during the 1960s.
