Lola releases details of the 2011 open cockpit LMP2 car

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The first details of Lola Cars International Ltd.'s new LMP2 car for the 2011 season have just been released. This gives interested teams the opportunity to assess the design of the new prototype, which meets new technical regulations of the upcoming season and will compete in series like the ALMS, LMS and Le Mans 24 Hours.

The prototype had to be produced in a manner that integrates the 2011 spec production GT engines, leading to the B11/80 featuring a longer wheelbase than its predecessor. This is because several of these engines are longer or bigger than the powerplants used this season.

Potential suppliers of units include BMW, Ford, HPD, Jaguar, Judd, Nissan and Toyota. When it comes to safety, the cabin of the Coupe model has been given extra features that also enhance comfort.

The press release states further that current and new Lola teams will be offered access to the Lola customer support centre. The championship winning B10/80 will still be offered but with a limited range of engine options.

Lola's Executive Chairman, Martin Birrane, expressed his delight that Lola is once again, fulfilling its ongoing commitment to Sports Prototype racing, a trend that began in 1998 with the B98/10, together with "a full compliment of products now available to [its] customers."
