Another Lola B05/40 Has A Great Shakedown
Bob Berridge and Peter Owen were out at Snetterton today, getting
to know the Chamberlain-Synergy Lola B05/40 AER. The car was completed
just before leaving for the track – but it ran beautifully
“We missed the
first session, but I drove for the next two, 45 minute sessions,
and Peter has been out for the last one,” reports a suitably
pleased Bob Berridge.
not much to report really – because it ran so well. I did
about 60 laps, and even in traffic, I was down to a 63 second lap.
We were just playing with it, but the AER is very powerful, and
the car has got loads and loads of grip.”
Berridge was very impressed
with the top speed he reached along the back straight….
“We might test
it next week, but we’ll definitely be at Magny-Cours on March
So that’s two Lola
B05/40s and the MG-Lola EX264 completed during the last three weeks
– each with a different engine, each running very well first
time out. The fourth one will be the Telesis Intersport car.
