I was cruising through the LOLA website and found it very interesting, I personally
purchased 3 Lolas from 1970-1976.
The first one was in 1970, LOLA T140-13 F5000 purchased from Ivan Newlin.
I raced it many times and finished 2nd West Coast SCCA NTL. I sold it in 1973 to Jo
Simmon in Van Nuys California.
Allan Brown at Oldracing cars.com does have a record of it.
I came to America in 1967 to work with Carroll Shelby. I was born in Switzerland and
worked as a mechanic in Europe with different teams and drivers in the early sixties.
In November 1972, I purchased from Jacques Rey in Switzerland, a
LOLA Coupe T70 SL 76152 -69 - I was a mechanic with Scuderia Filipinetti in
the sixties, that car was originally Jo Bonnier, who sold it to Rey.
I imported it to the States, never raced it. I sold it to Randy Berry in Illinois who
made molds of it and sold many kit cars under the name “Marauder GT”…
I talked to Randy...35 years later, (2004) he told me that he had to sell the car in
2000 to pay for his hospital bill after a heart by-pass….not having an insurance!
I do not have pictures of that Coupe..just one behind my LEDA F5000 in 1973 in
Van Nuys Calif.
