1971 Lola T204 For Sale by Auction

This lot will be auctioned via Silverstone Auctions, The Classic Sale at Silverstone 2022 on Friday the 26th of August - Saturday the 27th of August, The Wing, Silverstone Circuit, NN12 8TN. The vendor of this historic Formula Ford Lola T204 informs us that it was purchased new by Haas Automotive as part of Carl Haas' deal to represent Lola in the US and taken out to the States to compete in the US Championship in 1971. Having found pictures of the car in period in Valvoline colours, our vendor has recently returned the car to those colours and it looks very impressive.
In 2018, the Lola was completely rebuilt, including new chassis, by Neil Fowler Racing, who then prepared the car for the 2018/'19 season. Only a handful of events were competed in for those seasons and in 2020 the engine was rebuilt by Bold Engineering, bringing it up to the latest spec at the time and it was then reinstalled by Neil Fowler.
Since then, the car has only had a shake-down for 20 laps around Brands Indy circuit where the seller reports it was on the pace and provided an awful lot of fun! The Historic Formula Ford Championship is one of the most popular single-seater categories offering close, exciting and affordable racing and this Lola looks like a great chance to join the fun.
