Regarding the search for Lola pics, I visited Specialised Mouldings who did the GRP bodywork for the cars around 1969/70 and took some interesting colour pics of the brightly coloured bodies being made, the moulds etc. The pictures appeared in Motor at that time and should be retrievable from LAT if the date can be confirmed.
In the early 1970s I also took pictures of a road-going Lola T70 which Motor tested at MIRA in an accleration contest. Tony Dron did the driving, I worked the watches in the passenger seat. I was so surprsied by the acceleration from standstill pushing me back in the seat that I missed getting the 0-60mph time, only the standing quarter mile. But the clutch had wilted and that was that for the day. I think the car went back to MIRA and the 0-60 time was successfully established.
If any of this is of interest to this group, you can post it on my behalf.
