Lolas in Castle Combe F Libre races 1984-89

Postby simonlewisbooks » Fri Dec 17, 2010 10:42 am

Hi Folks.
I've just uploaded a small website devoted to the Formula Libre events at Castle Combe in the late 80s which features quite a lot of Lola photos.

www.motorsport-fanatic.co.uk/combe-libra.html

Among the cars featured are-

John Jordan's T330-HU6,with which Tony Trimmer dominated the era
Jeff Farmer's T87/50
Alan Fowler's ex Foulston T530
Rob Cox LC88

I think Richard Fuller also appears with a T87/50 but I could be mistaking the car so I'd be happy to be corrected (I don't have a programme for the event he appeared at).

Hope it's of interest. Any comments, contributions or corrections most welcome and if anyone can i.d. which chassis' Cox, Farmer and Fuller ran I'd be pleased to add that info to the site

I used to race aginst Richard Fuller in the late 80's in FF2000 before he progressed into F3000. Richard definitely ran a Lola in the UK F3000 series although I'm not sure that he raced in any libre races with it.
Richard is the sales director of the eponymous London brewer Fullers and should be easy to contact, see this link

Thanks Seamus. There is a page of photos on the site -

Which features him at the Sept 1989 event which was won by Rob Cox's Lola LC88.
