In 1977, Lola built on 3 T286's, but after an order by Alain de Cadenet, a 4th was built. Because of an FIA rule change just months before Le Mans, the car was ineligible to run and conseqently was never delivered. Due to this, it was left on the shelf at Lola until it was finally assembled in 1984. It became the car of Ottford Paper Group racing team, competing successfully in Thundersports events with Jim Wallace behind the wheel. In 1986, driven by Mike Wilds, it won the British Grand Prix. Unfortunately, the car sat idle from 1986 to 1996. The car raced again in Daytona and won the 1998 Thundersports Cup, driven by Walt Bohren.

This Lola T286, chassis# HU10, evolved from the T280, and has a monocoque chassis with a 3.5 liter Cosworth V8 mated to a Hewland transaxle. Vin Malkie restored it in 1996 after it was purchased at the Coys of Kensington Auction. Vin rebuilt the engine using a 3.0 liter Formula 3000 engine. The car is in the exact livery as it was when driven by Mike Wilds. This car is race ready, ready to drive and ready to win!
