Re: Where it all started

LolaMk6 and Ford GT40...... How similar? Judge for yourself from the attached cutaways. Ford wanted a road car version and hence chose steel for the chassis of a race car. If they had listened to Eric Broadley and used aluminium I think the GT40 would have been lighter and even more successful. Compare the Ford GT40 and the Lola T70 to see why.

Cheers
Mike
