Description

A very original example of the early Lola Sports 2000, this car was raced in Nationals for two years, then very lightly for four more. It was then stored for four years at which time it began it's current career as an autocross car. The car is very original and unmolested and is in "as raced" condition from the early 80s. A perfect regional car or candidate for the English series.

History

The car was purchased new in 1978 by Marty Siedentop in the Midwest, who raced it to a 3rd in the Midwest Division in A-Sports Racing (S2000 was not a National calss at that time). He ran at the Runoffs and finished 10th, again in ASR.

In November 1979 it was bought by Dick Hager and raced on a very limited basis until 1983. Diring this time the car was maintained by Indy Lights Chief Mechanic, Dwight Gilliam. The car ran a few Solo I and Hillclimb events until 1985. It was stored indoors until September, 1988 when it was purchased by the current owner. It has only run Solo II (Autocross) since.
