Overview

Lola race cars built by Eric Broadley were among the most successful sport racers of the 1960s and early 1970s. Originally hired by Ford to design its GT40, Broadley went on to design a series of successful Can-Am cars, as well as coupes for endurance events like Le Mans, Sebring, and Daytona. Lolas from this period were driven by a veritable "who's who" of motorsports, including John Surtees, David Hobbs, Graham Hill, Mark Donohue, and Jo Bonnier, to name a few.

This photohistory focuses on Broadley's Lolas, from the first Mark VI coupe in 1963 through 1974, the last year Lola campaigned the Can-Am series. Thirty-seven individuals were interviewed for the book, resulting in a host of remembrances from drivers, mechanics, and team owners.
