Jeremy Jackson should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

de Cadenet's 75 car was T380-based. His 1977 order for a T286 was cancelled/not taken up, so that chassis sat at Lola until Wallis used it for Thundersports

There's not much more than the summary Michael used on about Page 3 of this:

HU01 - Ecurie Bonnier (c. Jan 72)
HU02 - Ecurie Bonnier (c. Jan 72)
HU03 - Noritake Takahara (Mar 72)
HU04 - Carlos Gaspar (c. Jun 72)

HU01 goes to Rouveyran at end of 72 then ? (Willy Widar?) (Swedish guy Alain mentioned)
HU02 was written off Le Mans 72
HU03 stays in Japan and is still there
HU04 goes back to Ecurie Bonnier (hence ex-BIP references in race reports) then to Lord, then Zaborowski, Malcolm Johnstone, Brian & David Auger (hence reference to HU04), then Geoffrey Marsh/Marsh Plant and then ? (Rosso Bianco?)"

T286: HU7-10? HU10 built 77, but unused until 1986

T286 also sold to Xavier Lapeyre, T284 (Or T286) to Heinz Schulthess in 1975 as I mentioned.

Not sure of much re:T380s, de Cadenet's 75 chassis was based on HU4, I believe, but was re-numbered LM-2 (LM-1 being the 1972-74 chassis, nee "Duckhams Special"

His 77 & 78 builds were completely new (i.e not Lola-based), AFAIK

Jolly Club had HU2 according to Autosport, and I think messrs Casoni/Capoferri may have raced this, despite it being referred to as a T390, but not totally convinced. May have actually been a T390 with a DFV.
