Lola T280

HELLO
can somebody help me about LOLA T280 with 3L DFV engine :
Jo Bonnier was owner of the chassis 1 and 2 , but how many
cars was builded ? Chassis HU02 was destroyed in Jo BO's fatal crash in Le Mans 72 . Where is now chassis HU01?
In the Bianco Rosso Museum is a T 280 different of the original car . What is the story of this car ? A T280 won
a race in Estoril droved by Carlos GASPAR ( 18th June 1972 )and an other was entered in the 1972 Grand Champion Serie in Japan ( driver N TAKAHARA ) . Maybe somebody know
chassis number of these cars ?
I also search rear views of the car and pictures of the car
car entered by Jo Bonnier in Interserie 1972 .
Thanks for your answers ....
et un salut amical √* tous

Alain, welcome to ten-tenths. A lovely car the T280.
I too recall seeing one in Peter Kaus' Rosso Bianco museum at Aschaffenburg.The greatest Sportscar museum in the world!
I can't help with chassis numbers but might be able to find some photos from 72. I will have a look.
Regards
Andrew.

Alain,

I think the number of T280s is unclear, but jeremy Lord raced anon-Bonnier carin Minilite colours in Motoring News events in 1974 (I think). Tim Goss certainly raced that car at the Silverstone Interserie in 1974. That car "may" have been the one raced by Ray Mallock in Thndersports during 1983.

I believe the chassis for the cars for 1973 onwards, the T282 - T284 - T286 were sequential. T286-HU10 was the chassis run by James Wallis in Thundersports during 1985-86, and this was a car that was originally destined for de Cadenet, I believe.

So it could be assumed that there was a maximum of 10 3-litre chassis (If it wasn't for T286-HU50 being raced by Reudi Jauslin in Interserie from approx. 1978-83 !)

T280-HU01 was I think raced by Daniel Rouveyran in 1973, after that I don't know.

Hope that helps

Jeremy

Thanks Andrew for answer .
Perhaps the car in the Bianco Rosso Museum is not an T280
original ?

Hello Jeremy
I also think so : T280 chassis number are really unclear
Yes chassis HU010 was originally destined to De Cadenet and won the thundersports cup in 1986 (driven by Walt Bohren ? )
probably this car also won Monza 1000 Kms in 1979 , and was recently to sold on RACE-CARS . com .
I had contact with D Rouveyran's nephew , and the car #61
was probably HU01 . D Rouveyran died in an moutain climb race in autumn 1973 . With chassis HU01 ?
thanks for help

Alain,

HU10 was driven by James Wallis, and various other co-drivers - Mike Wilds in 1985, James Weaver & Will Hoy in 1986 i UK Thundersports events. It won one race at Brands Hatch in 1985, but only finished 2 of 4 races entered in 1986, so I think you're mixing it up with another series?

As I understood, it wasn't actually a running chassis until completed for Wallis' purchase in 1984.

I might be wrong, but wasn't Rouveyran killed while driving his March 721G (c/n 721G/5)?

Hello Alain, seems a lot of people here come from the center of France.
Can't help you with the Lola but i know for sure that Rouveyran died at the Mont Dore Hillclimb in 1973. There's a memorial reminding him in one of the first fast left handers at the beginning of the race. I've been there for holidays a couple of times and always wanted to know more about it. This post will surely help .

My memory might be playing tricks here, but i seem to remember Mike Wilds destroying a Lola in a fire at Donington in a Thundersports race, or was that a T296??

Yep your memory's OK, that was the T280 he shared with Mallock in 1983, entered by Marsh Plant Hire. It was actually rebuilt for the Brands race in September, which it won. So not sure how much dmaage the fire did, but I remember Autosport's photo, and it looked pretty extensive.

SOME QUESTIONS:
Did Jo Bonnier sold an T280 chassis just after Buenos Aires
1972 1000 kms to Mr Nestor Garcia Vega ?
What was chassis number of the winning car of the 1000 Kms de Paris race in October 1972 ( G Larrousse and JP Beltoise) ? I only have T280/2 in my docs .
I really try to know the story of the only car abble to disturb the Matra Team in 24 Hours Le Mans 1972 .

Vitesse is correct - Rouvreyan died 1st July 1973 in the Mont Dore hillclimb at the wheel of March 721G/5.

Alain,

The car that won the Paris 100okms in 1972 was a brand new chassis (according to Autosport), the prototype T282. However, it's bodywork was identical to the T280, i.e. it had the short nose, not the longer nose that the T282 had in 1973. Sorry, no idea of the chassis number.

I don't belive Garcia-Viega purchased a chassis, but drove the Ecurie Bonnier car(practice only) at Daytona in 1972.
