Mystery of Chapman"s death


Interesting. Never knew his Delorean connection


I read DeLorean's autobiography, on a Clear Day you can see General Motors.

It's about his time at GM, and doesn't cover his own car company, but he struck me as a very capable auto exec, and I've been fascinated about him ever since.  Never knew the Chapman connection either!

I seem to remember some speculation about Chapman's death in the press at the time. There was a suspicion that he had committed suicide. This would make more sense.

Andy B:
Always an interesting character, I visited Lotus GP at Ketteringham Hall once the week after AS death which subdued the proceedings a bit but and interesting visit which compared to the team building of today was tiny.
