T8800-25 is currently is owned by Michael McKinney in Washington, USA. Below he gives the history of this interesting car:

"We have Lola HU8800-25—Cosworth DFX. It was the Lola Indycar that the Kraco/Michael Andretti team ran in the second half of 1988 CART Indycar Series with a Cosworth DFS. It was the last one built that year as the Kraco Team was originally a March team.

It was produced after the initial production run of 23 cars by Lola. The car then was sold to the Bayside Disposal team after the 1988 season and was used as their primary car in the 1989 CART Series and raced in the 1989 Indy 500 with Dominic Dobson (Texaco/Havoline Sponsorship) with a Cosworth DFX. Following its CART days it raced in the American Indycar Series with a normally aspirated Jack Rousch NASCAR Ford engine. We have restored it to is 1989 race condition with a Cosworth."
