Chassis: SL76/141
Only partly built, chassis SL76/141 was shipped to North America for the Daytona 24 Hours. It was completed in the paddock for its original owner Ulf Norinder to race along with Lola's European distributor Jo Bonnier. Starting fifth, they retired following accident damage. Re-painted in striking Valvoline colours, it was then entered in the Sebring 12 Hours. Norinder and Bonnier again did not reach the finish due to a suspension failure. The car was then shipped to Europe where it was raced at Brands Hatch and Monza with little success. In the fall of 1969, Norinder raced the car in Scandinavia. It was then shipped to Argentina where it competed in its final contemporary events early in 1970. Through David Piper, chassis SL76/141 was then sold to Solar Productions for use in the movie Le Mans. Dressed as a Porsche 917, it was used for a crash sequence. Along with the other wrecks, the remains of SL76/141 were sold to Kilmene Latours. Salvageable parts were sold soon after to Roger Bolton, who used them to rebuild SL76/141. In 1971, the restored car was acquired by Clive Unsworth, who registered it for the road. Stored between 1975 and 1994, it was eventually brought back to the limelight by historian and racer John Starkey. After racing the car for a few years, he sold it to then owner of Lola Cars, Martin Birrane in 1998. In 2004, it passed to Italian historic racer Stefano Rosina, who had it restored to the Valvoline colours used early in 1969. After campaigning it in historic events for several years, Rosina sold the car to the current, British owner in 2015.
