According to the F1Register's results, it was retained by GA Motorsport for 1989, and race for them in the British F3000 championshiup by Jonathan Bancroft.

I have it noted as being driven by South African Mike Bryan at Brands in May 1990, but unfortunately I don't who the entrant was there.

Sorry that doesn't take you much further.

Ah - Mike Bryan. He raced in South African Formula GTI during the early 90's. I think that he crashed out of his only F3000 race?

Well he finished 8th in this one, but he did crash one of Roger Orgee's Reynard's in practice at Brands the previous year. They are the one 2 F3000 races I have for him.

Peter,

According to F1R / Autosport, Wilson raced the ex Amati/Bellefroid HU12 at the Brands race in June 89. Bancroft was using HU7 in this race.

This car i believe was used for hillclimbing and sprinting in france. I had thought it was owned by Antoine Lombardo, but he confirmed he still has his car and wants to sell it. Any idea how many Lola T88/50's were manufactured ?

Peter,

Highest chassis number I've seen is HU30, but I don't know about the Japanese series chassis.
