Motor Sport News - - Historics -

A Lola T292 that fin­ished fourth in class at Le Mans in 1975 will re­turn to the cir­cuit in July for the Le Mans Clas­sic.

The two-litre Bdg-pow­ered Lola sports-racer has been owned by en­gine builder Ge­off Richard­son since 1973, and in ’75 he ran it for Nigel Clark­son and Derek Wor­thing­ton.

Now James Claridge, who works with Richard­son, will take it back to France af­ter get­ting an en­try for the Clas­sic. “It has been ready to race for sev­eral years and when we got the Le Mans en­try we had to get it out,” said Claridge who raced it at Don­ing­ton re­cently.
