Lola’s B07/90 Wins First Time Out
We mentioned it in the Britcar 24 Hours coverage, but it’s worthy of its own news item – the fact that Nigel Greensall won on Saturday at Silverstone, driving Lola’s new Sports 2000 car, the B07/90.

“In qualifying we had a reasonable margin for pole of 0.422 seconds,” says Lola’s MD Rupert Mainwaring, “but the race long battle with Rick Johnson was a dogfight, with the Lola eventually taking the flag, a really exciting race with the lead changing twice on the penultimate lap!”

“An absolutely brilliant race,” summed up Greensall, “I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was an important win for Lola, because there’s a big market for these cars – and it was nice to beat championship leader Rick Johnson.”

The margin at the flag was six-tenths, these two 40 seconds ahead of the rest, after 30 minutes.

“The car is hardly sorted so we can look forward to a bright future for the B09/70, with CN and VdeV versions to follow shortly, a Track Day derivative is also on the cards,” adds Rupert Mainwaring.
