Jeremy Jackson should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Bit odd... the address is correct but doesn't work if you click on the link from here. Try copying & pasting this address into your browser and it should be OK.

It's because the ')' is not supposed to be part of the address. Try http://wsrp.wz.cz/ and specifically http://wsrp.wz.cz/mesport.html

There are some pictures on this site: http://www.racingsportscars.com/photo.html

My original post was intending to highlight Martin's chassis listings at:

i HAVE BEEN FLICKING THROUGH MY lOLA STARKEY BOOKS AND WE HAVE MISSED THE 380 VERSION OF THE 280 CARS WITH DFV 5 CARS BUILT
READING THE ARTICLE IT READS -THE 380 WAS A NEW CAR WITH RISING RATE SUSPENSION -BUT THE BODY IS 286 IN ITS SHAPE MAYBE WE HAVE SOME OF THESE CARS MIXING UP THE 280-86 CARS ESPECIALLY IN THE USA WHERE WE ARE MISSING SOME ID TAGS
LOLA ALSO RAN 390 SERIES CAR LOOKING LIKE A 296 IN BODY SHAPE

Lola T280 / T380

Just to be clear the Starkey book is not correct!

It shows a picture of the T286 as a T380.

The T380 has its own body which is similar to the T390.

The T380 was a totally different car in every way so i do not think there is any mix up of the two types.

I know Mr Starkey did not proof read his book very well hence yr comments on fotos
i thought the 380 390 body was completly different to the 286 294 shape
Fison cars was for sale on yr site once ( or was it Belga livery car) it was an ugly shape compared to the 286/294 style
De Cadanet ran 1 car at le man and Raymond had the Fisons car

All of the pictures in the "LOLA ILLLUSTRATED HISTORY" OF THE T380 are actually of the T286 inc ther picture of the suspension.
and the picture of the T390 is a picture of the T298.

The T390 series cars were totally different to the T290/2/4/6/8 and were not a development at all in fact the car (T380 /T390) was a bit of a diasaster.

Guys, I agree that Starkey's book is flawed but can we keep the criticism constructive, please.
