I am restoring a LOLA T950 #HU 04. I would like to know more about the history on that car, or get in contact with other T950 owners (if there are some)
If someone know where to get the LOLA can am bodywork, that was used on the LOLA T8750 i would be wery interested.

The T950 is Lola first F3000 car based on Indy car tub
The car you have was raced in UK BOSS series by Bernie harris 1996 ish and i think he used Judd ev engine in the car
The car was sold many years ago less engine and gearbox to a man who had it sitting in his garage
To be honest if the car still has no gearbox it is best to not bother rebuilding the car it was not a good F300 car March built a better car the later Lola is a better car T950 was heavy chassis

You are right about the LOLA T950. They where too heavy and too soft. I have been talking with John Nielsen who was driving for ralt in 1985 F3000. He told me the same about the LOLA T950, and he also said that they was only good when it was raining.
I am finished restoring the car, mostly because it is a piece of LOLA herritage, and a car from the first year in F3000.
The car has an ESSEX 3,0L V6 togheter with an AUDI 5 speed transaxle as drivetrain for the car, all togheter with the original suspension.
Everything has been overhauled and Works perfect.
I think Bernie Harris (R.I.P.) was driving the car in 2001 with a JUDD engine.
