Lola T60


John Surtees Lola T60,acrylic on paper 8x11" sold

fancied something a bit different today,and what is there not to like about this gorgious cherry red Surtees CanAm Lola?

Nostalgia...when i was a kid in the 70's, and just started to get fascinated by F1,
i got a little Surtees TS7 toycar...
In the 90's,when i was busy building models for teams and drivers,i found it again in the modelshop at Brands Hatch.Later that day i met Big John,he liked my work and wanted me to build all the cars he ran....Wow!
