Lola Mk1

I took this photograph at the Gold Cup meeting at Oulton Park in August 2003 where this car was entered in the BRDC Historic Sports Car Championship race.
It's Peter Austin's 1960 Lola Mk1. These cars were produced by Lola Cars from 1958 to 1962, initially with a 1100cc Coventry Climax FWA engine. The programme of the event shows that this one has an engine of 1490cc and it appears to be chassis #BR-19. On 7 July 2015 I showed a couple of photographs of the Lola Mk1 of Brian Ashby at the Aston Martin Owners Club's meeting at Oulton Park in September 1986.
