1978 Lola T620 Super Vee
Great, inexpensive, entry for the Masters Formula Atlantic Plus Series
Sold January 2023
Lola built twenty six Lola T620 chassis. These were the new advanced generation water cooled, monococque Super Vees that ushered in the next era of Super Vees. They were now moving away from the Formula Ford type of construction and performance and moving toward Formula Atlantic construction and performance. Soon these water cooled Pro Super Vees would take over where the Pro Formula Atlantic series left off. The Super Vees would also later compete head-to-head with Formula Atlantics in SCCA Club Racing.
This particular T620 is the ex-Mike Yoder pro Super Vee. Raced in 1978 Mini Indy Series and Bosch Gold Cup. Only 7 races since new. Yoder finished 10th out of 37 cars in the U.S. Formula Super Vee Championship, He also won the SCCA Runoffs in 1978 driving another Lola Super Vee.
Lola T-620’s were among the top cars in 1978, achieving multiple race wins. Herm Johnson finished second in the Championship driving a T-620.
We think Super Vees remain an amazing value in todays historic racing market. They race competitively with the Formula Atlantics at 1/2 to 1/3rd the price. Maintenance and spares are also much less expensive. Compare the performance and technology you get with a Super Vee vs. a Formula Ford for about the same price.
Chassis number HU 18
Two race weekends on a full nut & bolt restoration. 1600 cc engine with 175 h.p. Hewland 5 speed. Spares include one set of Revolution wheels, plus fuel injection, and other miscellaneous parts.
The car comes with a large file of tech. info, Lola drawings of sub assembly’s, and period race results.
The Lola’s most recent race was at Sonoma Raceway in the fall of 2021. Earlier in 2021 the car finished 3rd overall at Road America, and ahead of Geoff Brabham.
As mentioned above, this Lola is an inexpensive entry into the new Masters Formula Atlantic Plus Series, which includes Formula Atlantic and Formula Super Vee. If you’ve not run with Ron Maydon and Masters before, they are a first class organization that run several premier series, including Historic F1, Historic Sports Car, Historic Endurance Racing, and other series in the U.S., the U.K, and Europe. It is a chance to finally run historic Super Vees in a first class series dedicated for similar cars. Great! Of course you can also run with local vintage racing organizations in between Masters events. So now you have the best of both worlds, local events and premier events for Super Vees.
So get the Lola and come join us for the ever increasing grids, and popularity, of these very quick, exciting, Super Vees, which can still be purchased at bargain prices.
