Lola T212

This car took part in a race billed as the HSCC Atlantic Computers Historic GT Championship at the HSCC Spring Historic Race Meeting at Oulton Park in May 1986.
It's a 1970 Lola T212, entered in the race by Oyez Stationery and driven by Chris Beauvoisin. Lola has been building a wide variety of racing cars since 1958 ranging from sports and GT cars to single seater Formula Junior, Formula 2 and Formula 1 cars. The Ford GT40s that won the Le Mans 24 Hour race in the four years from 1966 to 1969 were based on the Lola GT Mk6 and Graham Hill won the 1966 Indianapolis 500 race in a Lola T90. The 1971 European Sports Car Championship was won by a Lola T212 like the above car, a championship that was won the previous year by Jo Bonnier in a  Lola T210
