  1. He ordered an Xbox , 2 Flat screens and some neons as well.
     
  2. I hope the xbox is chromed so it is bling bling when he tracks it. Everyone knows that cars are faster around race tracks if you have someone playing project gotham in the passenger seat. It has something to do with kudos bonuses.
     
  3. Its a custome made Xbox with added weight !!!!
     
  4. Why no 962?
     
  5. Extra weight! That is awesome. For every 10kgs extra a car carries, Apparently it is 10 seconds per lap faster around any track in the world, and 15 seconds at Road America. I learnt this trick in the indies, and thats why Im looking to get a Sherman tank as my next car, because i have heard they are just as fast as an F2004 around the ring.
     
  6. He prefers the Lola and its elligible for Le Mans Classic !
     
  7. Is he entering LM Classic?

    I hope Eurosport will brodacast it in 05 too!
     
  8. Is this the 1969 Lola T70 of Scuderia Filipinetti?

    Then it has got some BBS aftermarket wheels. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    Amenasce,

    Lola T70
    The Racing History &
    Individual Chassis Record

    First Published in 1993,
    Veloce Publishing, PLC
    Third Edition Published 2002

    $59.99 + S&H

    The Lola T70 was the car that Eric Broadley wanted to build for ford instead of the GT40. he thought the GT40 too conservative in specification for a state-of-the-art sports racing car, so he split with the giant corporation to build his own company: Lola

    Immediately successful, the T70 carried John Surtees to the Championship in the 1966 Can-Am series. the cars were also very successful in Group 7 races until the series ended in 1966, by which time the likes of Denny Hulme, David Hobbs and Brian Redman had all driven T70s to victory.

    Under continuous development until the MkIIIb Coupe of 1969, the T70 was never a great endurance racer but achieved major successes in shorter events such as the TT and Martini races. Today, the T70 is a leading force in historic racing.

    Over many years, John Starkey - T70 owner and ex-Curator of the famous Donington racing car collection - has compiled a huge amount of information on the cars and interviewed many past and present owners and drivers about their experiences with the T70. Uniquely, this book contains the history and specification - where known - of each individual T70 chassis.

    Now in its third edition, here is the definitive development and racing history of the Lola T70.
