Description

This is the definitive development and racing history of the Lola T70. John Starkey has compiled a huge amount of information on the cars and interviewed many past and present owners and drivers about their experiences with the T70. Uniquely, this book contains the history and specification – where known – of each individual T70 chassis.

Synopsis

The Lola T70 was the car that Eric Broadley wanted to build for Ford instead of the GT40. He thought the GT40 too conservative in specification for a state-of-the-art sports racing car, so he split with the giant corporation to build the T70 under the aegis of his own company: Lola.
Immediately successful, the T70 carried John Surtees to the Championship in the 1966 Can-Am series. The cars were also very successful in Group 7 races until the series ended in 1966, by which time the likes of Denny Hulme, David Hobbs and Brian Redman had all driven T70s to victory.
Under continuous development until the Mk IIIb Coupé of 1969, the T70 was never a great endurance racer but achieved major successes in shorter events such as the TT and Martini races. Today, the T70 is a leading force in historic racing.
Over many years, John Starkey – T70 owner and ex-Curator of the famous Donington racing car collection – has compiled a huge amount of information on the cars and interviewed many past and present owners and drivers about their experiences with the T70. Uniquely, this book contains the history and specification – where known – of each individual T70 chassis.
Available again after an absence of several years, this book is the definitive development and racing history of the Lola T70.

Independent Reviews

The fact that this book is on its fourth edition, having been first published in 1993, gives you a good hint as to the quality of this book. It is recommended.

As a long-time owner and racer of Lola T70s, there can be few writers better qualified to recount the complete marque history of the car than Starkey, who book must be regarded as essential reading for all enthusiasts of these charismatic V8 sportsracers.

This was and remains a great book on the subject. Good to see this available once more.
Total Kit Car magazine

Part of Veloce’s Classic Reprint series, the book covers several racing seasons in great detail, race by race. It also has a complete history and record of each individual T70, T160 and T165 chassis, recently updated in this edition, demonstrating the author John Starkey’s dedication to the marque. He and his many contributors have complied what must be the most complete history of the T70 ever published.
Hagerty Classic Cars newsletter

24 years since its first publication, John Starkey’s reference - which includes race reports and competition and ownership histories for every T70 - remain unsurpassed in usefulness.
Octane

For all fans of this great sports car this has to be the definitive book.
