Lola GT MK6 Early Photos

Other than the couple of photos from the introduction at the Racing Car Show, these photos from Silverstone Trophy race May 11th are the earliest photos prior to running Le Mans. I was interesting to see the original configuration.

Photos courtesy of Revs Institute® Archives, George Phillips Collection.

Interesting aside from the Lola, I count 7 Lotus 23s in the third pic.

Re: Lola GT MK6 Early Photos

Michel actually I went back & looked there may be as many as 10. A couple that are hard to tell for sure LOL But it sure shows the dominance of Lotus (number of cars in the field) in the class at that time. The smaller engined cars were often more adgile in the turns & baking over the heavier V8 cars in the early days. Until the technology caught up. Looks like the Gt started pretty well back in the fiend. It certainly could be interesting if somebody would make a replica though.
