Chassis BR-13 was built in May 1960 specifically as a road car with thicker fiberglass bodywork and a 1216 cc Coventry Climax engine, rather than the normal 1098 of the production racing models. The original owner covered nearly 55000 trouble free miles in the car - mostly on the A272 very early on Sunday morning!
Former historic racer, early Lola historian and author, David Pratley, bought the car from the original owner in 1983. David says, “I raced BR-13 until 1997 when it got pushed into a corner of the garage whist I concentrated on my Mark 2 and 3 single seaters. When I finally hung up my helmet at the end of 2009, I thought it would be appropriate to restore BR-13 for road use again. This included recommissioning the electrics, fitting a horn and handbrake, a silencer and road friendly clutch and brake linings.” The work was carried out by Stuart Roach at Roach manufacturing, Ower, Hampshire.
