Lola T70

DARIO'S VERDICT ON THE LOLA T70 "The Lola feels a little different in that  it’s an active racing car, while the 917 and 512S are borderline museum pieces. This is a bit more ‘on the button’, maybe a bit more sorted. In chassis terms it’s fantastic, you can feel how it rolls together. It has a lot more grip than I’d imagined and heavy steering – with a big wheel and lots of weight fed through it...

Completing the trifecta

We track down one of the very few drivers who raced the Lola T70, Porsche 917 and Ferrari 512 in their heyday Four years separated the Lola T70, the Porsche 917 and the Ferrari 512 in an era when the same motley band of drivers would traipse around the world racing what would become the sport’s most memorable prototypes.

Magic numbers

Porsche 917, Ferrari 512, Lola T70 - perhaps as great a concentration of sports car heritage as you could find in a single pit garage. And Motor Sport was at Donington Park to dirve them. Your chauffeur? Dario Franchitti Time’s passage has a habit of altering perceptions. In the warm light of 21st century Leicestershire, the collage of Porsche 917, Ferrari 512S and Lola T70 is arguably the...

National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Lloyds & Scottish Historic Car Championship

The entry for the second round of this championship at the AMOC's St. John Horsfall Silverstone meeting at the end of June was so strong that the single-seater racing cars were divided from the sports cars in two races. The single-seater race provided the dice of the day between Gerry Marshall (above, furthest from the camera) driving the Marsh Aston Martin DBR4 and Bruce Halford (No.70) in his...

XXIII Pau Grand Prix: A Team Lotus demonstration

Pau, France, April 15th With Easter being rather early the traditional Pau Grand Prix, held on Easter Monday, suffered from many possible entries not being ready, neither Ferrari nor A.T.S. being sufficiently advanced with their new cars to take part in the 100-lap "round-the-houses" race. Fifteen drivers were assembled for the first practice, which took place on Saturday afternoon, but only...

Three hill-climbs

Bouley Bay The jersey M.C. and L.C.C.'s Hill-Climb event on July 27th enticed a large number of competitors from the mainland.

Matters of moment

VASCAR—And the very best of luck! Ever since the motor car came into being its owners and drivers have been apprehended for allowing it to attain too high a speed in the eyes of those who write our-Laws and profess to know what is good for the community in general. Before that, charges of reckless driving of horses and riding of bicycles were not unheard of and usually it was pace rather than...

Lunch with... Adrian Reynard

Innovator, improviser, impecunious... The founder of a famous British racing institution has been all three, but right now he's flying high once again By Simon Taylor Motor racing is dangerous: it's a truism that doesn't need repeating. And motor racing can be dangerous commercially, too. On the balance sheet as well as on the track, risk can reap huge rewards but can also result in huge crashes...
