The car is in road course configuration with a 97 "spec" rear wing and matching front wing. The car is currently a six speed (all forward/wide 5th and 6th) "roller". All suspension, spindles, output flanges and uprights have been crack tested. Far from a show car, a substantial amount of prep work has already been done on the car. The uprights have been built. The gearbox has been crack tested and assembled with road course gearing for an XD with a 13,000 RPM limit. Drive shafts were returned to Metalore for inspection and recoating. The brake calipers have been rebuilt.

The car needs to have the tub/fuel cell examined, a turbo, two tri-pods, cooling system (new radiators available), steering rack examined, dampers, data acquisition (XD chassis harness included with car) along with general reassembly work. A 96 XD customer exhaust system, complete with turbo hot section, is supplied but must have current head flanges installed for the newer mail slot type XD heads.

1996 also marked the move by Cosworth from the XB Series Two to the XD. The XD features improved cylinder head design along with changes in the valve train which eventually allowed the engine to turn 14,700 RPMs.

The owner is a major US BOSS proponent and can complete all the work required to bring the car to up and running status, as well as provide trackside services for the buyer. He is a wealth of information on these cars and if you are considering running a BOSS car a chat with him will probably prove worthwhile.


This 1996 Lola ChampCar was campaigned by Payton Coyne Racing and driven by Michel Jordain Jr. with mid-pack results in 1997. He achieved a best of 12th at Portland gaining one point. 1996 marked the creation of the IRL and thus the name ChampCar for cars running under the Championship Auto Racing Teams or CART banner.
