THE LOLA T620

pic
The previous Super Vee design to the T620, the T328, was going to be a hard act to follow as it won the VW-Castrol European Super Vee Championship with Arie Luyendyk and the US Formula Super Vee Championship with Bob Lazier and took some twenty significant wins in 1977. The T620 featured a new chassis and bodywork with an all new suspension design and the newly introduced water cooled Volkswagen Rabbit engine which replaced the old air cooled unit. Such was the success of the T328 Lola sold twenty six of the new cars with nineteen going to the US with the remainder going to Germany, Holland and Austria.

Although the new car took race wins in the US and Europe it was not able to reproduce the form of its predecessor albeit Herm Johnson finished as runner-up in the US Formula Super Vee Championship and Jo Gartner third in the European Formula Super Vee Championship but it was the Argo JM2 in the US and the March 783SV in Europe that took the laurels.
