@Kiko Lola had a very long F1 career as a supplier of chassis, from 1962 for John Surtees with the customer Mk4, supplying chassis for Surtees again in the race winning Honda "Hondola" in 1967, Embassy-Hill, Larrouse and finally with Scuderia Italia. The only reason 1997 was so bad is because their engine supplier was so late in developing the engine holding back their own chassis development and then rushing everything with a customer Ford V8 for the 1997 season due to sponsor pressures, they were supposed to enter in 1998. Lola aren't mugs, they know how to build race cars and have very successfully since 1997 in formula Nippon, F3000, GP2, Sports cars, LMP1, CART, F3 and Indy Lights. I'm sure there are more. They have forgotten more experience than HRT have every had.
