It was first driven on the 12th of October 2008 at the anniversary celebratory parade around the town of Huntingdon. It was driven on that occasion by John Surtees (OBE) with the cars original designer, Eric Broadley (MBE) as passenger. The car is street licensed and features a full leather interior and air conditioning. The dash has been signed by John Surtees. This is an absolutely mind boggling street machine! It is also eligible for FIA vintage racing. T70 History As the factory Fords, Ferraris, and Porsches tore up the tracks in pursuit of endurance racing glory in the 1960s and early 1970s, only one car gave privateers the chance to stand up to them -- the Lola T70 The T70 won the inaugural Can-Am championship in open-cockpit form. The Mk3 coupe was launched in 1966 for long-distance competition, with the MkIIi3B evolution introduced in 1969. The T70 MKII won 23 races over three season, including the Daytona 24 Hours in 1969, all powered by stock-block Chevrolet engines of the type that dominated the Can-Am and Formula 5000. Lola has produced a limited run of new T70 MkIIIB chassis eligible for the world's major historic racing series.
