The Lotus 69 was the series of single seaters built for four categories  – F2, F3, Formula B/Atlantic, and Formula Ford. The specification differed by chassis features and engines used. F3 car inherited the Lotus 59 square tube frame and was powered by various Ford-based engines. Formula 2 version had a monocoque center section with tubular front, and rear and Cosworth FVA engine was used. In the 1970 season Lotus 69 was used by several teams including quasi-works Johen Rindt Racing with graded drivers Johen Rindt and Graham Hill.
