1971 Lola T212 sponsored by Camel at Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort

The Lola T212 was developed by the British based Lola Company in 1971. The car was designed for the 2-liter Sport Car, Group 6 Competition and was given a monocoque chassis and a four cylinder Cosworth engine mounted in the rear. This engines produced about 275 horsepower and is attached to a Hewland 5-speed transmission. 
This car was sponsored by Camel but sadly it didn’t compete in the 24 Hours of Lemans, only one of the cars competed in the 24 Hours of Lemans and that was the number 50 car. This car only lasted to the 8th hour of the race because of an engine failure which forced them to retire early.
