THE LOLA T60

The T60 was Lola's first single-seater monocoque and was designed as the 1965 F2 replacemnt for the previous season's, quite successful, T54 and T55 models. Once again it was a regular top six runner with the occassional race win if not quite on the ultimate pace of the works Brabham and Lotus (full results below).

The Formula 3 variant was a similar story, Eric Offenstadt and Mike Beckwith winning races but Matra and Brabham were the dominant force.

For a detailed account of the story and design of the T60 see Rob Shanahan's article HERE.

Year(s) of Construction: 1965

Total Built: 5 (3 Formula 2 spec - 2 Formula 3 spec).
