LOLA T280 – COSWORTH n.8

HISTORY

The Lola T280 – Cosworth n.8 is a sports car that took part in the 1972 24 Hours of Le Mans. Lola boss Eric Broadley in 1972 commissioned designer Bob Marston in collaboration with young Patrick Head and John Barnard to build a frame to match the reliable 3-liter Ford Cosworth DFV engine.

Jo Bonnier and Gijs Van Lennep at the helm of the Lola T280 – Cosworth n.8 participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1972, without stopping it.
The English manufacturer for the French race entrusted two copies to the Ecurie Bonnier. The Swedish driver started from the fifth position and during the race he showed the excellent performance of the sports car. Unfortunately during the early hours of the morning while he was firmly in third position, Bonnier dubbed but an error caused an accident that was fatal for the Swede. The race was won by Matra Simca MS670 n.15 of Henry Pescarolo and Graham Hill.

BRISTOL 450C n.34

HISTORY

The Bristol 450C n.34 is a car that took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955. During the winter, studies in the wind tunnel led to the decision to open the cockpit, following the direction taken by manufacturers like Ferrari, Jaguar and Mercedes. A novelty brought in the tender by the British manufacturer was the system to change tires using a multi-barrel key designed in the Bristol workshops.

Peter Wilson and Jim Mayers with the Bristol 450C n.34 arrived seventh at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955. The car with the open passenger compartment proved easier to drive than that of the previous year. The 450C featured disc brakes external to the front and interior to the rear. Wilson and Mayers won the S-2000 category and finished the race with a 36-lap gap from Hawthorn and Bueb’s Jaguar D-Type n.6 race winners. In the S-2000 category the English team won the podium with all three cars.

HISTORY

The Ford GT n.85 is a car that participated in the GTE AM class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2019. The American manufacturer entrusts its GT to the Keating Motorsport team, trying to win the junior class. Winn’s sponsors the American team, giving the car a particular color.

Ben Keating, Jeroen Bleekemolen and Felipe Fraga at the wheel of the Ford GT n.85 were disqualified for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2019 due to problems with the refueling system. Keating’s and GT’s Ford GT had won the race. On Monday, the International Automobile Federation disqualified the car for breaking two fuel supply regulations. The first, to fill the tank too quickly, and the second, because the car carried more fuel than it was allowed. The victory in the GT AM class went to the Porsche 911 RSR n.56 of the Project 1 team with Jorg Bergmeister, Patrick Lindsey, Egidio Perfetti, who finished the race thirty-first at fifty-one laps behind the Toyota TS050 n.8 winner of the race.
