Welcome the 1980 Lola T530

After 21 years in storage, today we tested the award winning 1980 Lola T530 at the Circuit.
Driven by Patrick Tambay to the CanAm Championship win in 1980 before he went to F1, this Lola was driven by Mario Andretti at Road America the same year.
Last driven in 1995 by Vancouver Island residents and ‪#‎islandcircuit‬member, Pieter Baljet, he won 3 Palm Springs Grand Prix races from ’90-’92 and it hasn’t been driven since… until today.
Specs: 1980 Lola T530, made in England. 1800lbs, mechanically injected with a 5L Chevrolet block that was hand built by Chaparral.
