New Lola T-600 IMSA From SRC
The Lola T600 designed by Eric Broadley was introduced in 1981 for the IMSA Championship and FIA Group 6 competition. The first two cars built were purchased by the Cooke-Woods Racing team, which equipped them with the 5.7-liter Chevrolet V-8 engine. The Lola T600 was originally designed to be equipped with a choice of Porsche, Ford, BMW or Chevrolet engines.
The first North American race in which Lola T600 competed was the 100 miles of Laguna Seca, California. Brian Redman driving chassis HU-1 took the pole and ran to a dominant victory. Wins by the team were repeated at Lime Rock, Mid-Ohio, Portland and Road Atlanta.
This new 1:32 scale version by SRC reproduces driver Brian Redman's debut at Laguna Seca. It comes with the new fully transparent SRC display box.
SRC plans to offer the "T-Bird Swap Shop" IMSA Lola T600 HU4 of John Paul Jr. and the "Budweiser" IMSA Lola HU5 of Chris Cord/Jim Adams later in 2015.
