Peter Arundell (Ilford, Essex, 8 November 1933 [1] - 16 June 2009 [2]) was a racing driver from England, who raced in Formula One for the Lotus team. He participated in 13 World Championship Grands Prix, scoring 12 championship points.

Arundell became a professional racing driver after finishing his time in the Royal Air Force, competing in Lotus and Elva cars. In 1962 he won the British Formula Junior championship in a Lotus 22, and also in 1963 in a Lotus 27. He also won the Monaco Formula Junior race in 1961 and 1962.

He marked his arrived in the Formula One World Championship in 1964 with two podium finishes. He was regarded as a strong prospect for the future and a great supporting driver for World Champion Jim Clark.[3]

In 1964, while racing in Formula 2 at Reims-Gueux, he had a spin and was hit at high speed by Richie Ginther; Arundell was thrown from the car in the impact, which resulted in him missing most of the 1965 season. Lotus boss Colin Chapman saved his place in the team for 1966, although he did not enjoy any great success. At the end of that year he retired from Formula One, having started only 11 races.[4]

He retired from racing altogether in 1969, and later moved to Florida, where he set up the software company Mystique, responsible for amongst other games the notorious Custer's Revenge.
