1 Mins read

Sports car manufacturer Lola has announced their latest prototype racing car to join their stable for 2012 in the shape of their cost capped LMP2 Coupe – the Lola B12/80.

In a time where it is important for teams to keep costs down as the economic climate is so volatile Lola have become the first constructor to introduce a true cost capped Coupe.

Executive Chairman of Lola Group, Martin Birrane is extremely proud of his companies efforts. “Prototype racing has been at its most successful when there has been a period of rule stability. It is very reassuring that the regulations are now intended to remain stable for a minimum period of 5 years in LMP2.”

Managing Director of Lola Cars International Ltd, Robin Brundle added: “This is a significant announcement showcasing Lola’s commitment for the future in this category. Our engineers are hard at work finalising the aerodynamics package for the B12/80. We invite all interested parties to consider what will be the most competitive, most reliable and most cost-effective racing package in global endurance racing next year.”

Lola will be looking to add to their impressive tally of current generation victories that include three LMP2 class wins, 25 podium positions at Le Mans 24 Hours and two Le Mans Series Constructors titles.
