The Lola T530 was Lola’s dedicated ground-effect single-seater Can-Am car which dominated the series in 1980 winning all but 2 of the nine races in that year’s championship. One of the largest racing cars ever built, the T530 was used by nearly all the major teams in 1980. Currently disassembled, minus engine and gearbox, the only major parts missing HU2 is ready to be rebuilt and be highly competitive in high profile series both in the EU and the USA.
HU2 was originally built by Lola in March 1980 and sold new to Carl Haas racing team in the USA to be fitted with a 5,000 CC Chevrolet V8 mated to a Hewland DG300 gearbox. Post it’s career in international Can Am Series HU2 was then sold to John Foulston to compete with considerable success in the UK based 1983 Thundersports series.
