This car has been owned for 35 years by its current owner, a professor of mechanics, motorsport enthusiast and brilliant driver. Produced in 1974, this Lola T294 participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1975, in the colors of the team ROC. In the hands of Hervé Bayard, this car was subsequently used for circuit or hill climb events. Since 1980, the current owner has won numerous hill climbs, in the French Championship: Le Mont Dore, Super Lioran, St. Goueno... The car finished second overall in the Rangiers race, in Switzerland and in 1984, the car clinched the title of the French Championship for Group 6 racing on circuits. In the following years, the Lola remained in the garage because the owner was busy in Group C racing. In 2004, it underwent a complete overhaul and participated in several events of Classic Endurance Racing and Le Mans Classic in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014. Now powered by a four-cylinder BMW M12/7 engine, the car comes with a "Passeport Technique Historique" (historic technical passport). Parts are stamped with the type of the car and structural tests (meeting FIA standards) have been carried out by the company Metal Control in 2008.
The car has a great track record and a prestigious provenance, as it is a former championship winning car, which should allow the owner the pleasures of competing in historic racing events in a very competitive car.
