Description

HU-104 is one of the last built examples of the very successful Lola T298 series. This ex-LeMans 24hr T298 is now back in its Primagaz livery as raced at LeMans in 1981 and looks magnificent. In 2010, the car was completely restored by French specialist Y. Mahé for the current owner who participated in CER during 2011. The BMW M12/7 engine is freshly rebuild (by Cerent Gmbh) producing an astonishing 352 bhp and has 0 km since. With an equally fresh gearbox and current FIA HTP papers, this Lola T298 is absolutely ready to race. and comes with various wheel sets, spare bodywork and miscellaneous spare parts.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the few Lola T298 with period LeMans history and in perfect condition which makes it a highly sought after and front running entry in today’s 2 litre prototype historic races such as CER, Masters, HSCC, etc..

The car currently resides in Delbrück, Germany where an inspection can be arranged subject to prior appointment.

History

In 1980, HU-104 was sold by the Lola factory to its Swiss agent Heini Mader who then sold HU-104 to the French team of Pierre Yver, Jacques Heuclin and Michel Dubois who competed in the 1981 LeMans 24hr race with HU-104 in Primagaz livery and race-Nr #33. They finished the race with 201 laps completed. During the subsequent (1982 and 1983) years, Jacques Heuclin continued to race the car in both the DRM and Interseries championships. From 1984 to 1985 HU-104 was owned by Daniel Aguzzi who used it in hillclimb races and then sold the car to Mr. Faure. After changing hands a few more times, the current owner bought the car from Y. Mahé in 2010. As such, it has continuous ownership history until today !
