MG-Lola EX257

The Gold Cup meeting at Oulton Park in August 2008 celebrated 50 years of Lola, and there was a demonstration run by a variety of Lolas as well as  a static display of other models, including one of the T90 models which competed in the 1966 Indianapolis 500 race and which I featured on 10th March 2015. The car pictured below is one of those which took part in the demonstration run.
This is an MG-Lola EX257 and appears to be chassis #HU-02 which took part in the Le Mans 24 Hour Race in 2004, although it did not finish the race.
It was entered in that Le Mans race by Ray Mallock's RML AD group and driven by Thomas Erdos, Mike Newton and Nathan Kinch.
Here's the car during the demonstration run at the Knickerbrook chicane.
