1981 Lola Center Seat Can Am


Built new for 1981 using a T333 monocoque that John Morton had acquired from Cooke-Wood Racing. As Morton had driven the "work" Frissbee in 1980, and the Herb Caplan Frissbee earlier in 1981, it is likely he had assistance from Brad Frisselle and Joey Cavaglieri in construction of this car. It was run by Phil Conte's Conte-Glanz Industries (CGI)and was ready in time for Morton to race in the three Californian Can-Am races at the end of 1981: Riverside, Laguna Seca and Ceasar's Palace. Retained by CGI for Morton in 1982, and appeared at every race, finishing 3rd at Mid-Ohio, and regularly qualifying in the top 5, Conte and Morton moved to IMSA for 1983, and the Frissbee was sold to team manager Chuck McConnell (Arroyo Grance, CA), who appeared with it at the CAT race at Willow Springs 3 May 1987. McConnell raced the Frissbee-Lola in historic racing since 2009 and up to 2019.
