Description

After Eric Broadley found the Ford GT40 too conservative in specs for a state-of-the-art sports racing car, he left the company to create his own company, Lola, and the car he always truly desired, the Lola T70.

Immediately successful, the T70 carried John Surtees to the Championship in the 1966 Can-Am series. The cars were also very successful in Group 7 races until the series ended in 1966, by which time the likes of Denny Hulme, David Hobbs, and Brian Redman had all driven T70s to victory.

John Starkey, T70 owner and ex-Curator of the famous Donington racing car collection, has compiled a huge amount of information on the cars and interviewed many past and present owners and drivers about their experiences with the T70. Uniquely, this book contains the history and specification of each individual T70 chassis. 

Available again after an absence of several years, here is the definitive development and racing history of the Lola T70.
