One of two Barclays International sponsored Lola T292s raced in the 1973 European 2-Liter Championship season for sports prototypes by Jim Busby and Guy Edwards as a semi-Lola works backed effort. After coming to the USA, it won the SCCA Southern Pacific Division BSR title. Also owned and raced by Joe Buzzetta, a 1960s Porsche Factory Team driver. In addition, it was raced by Bobby Rahal at the 1977 Road America Can-Am round. The ownership history is known and well documented. It has been with the present owner since 2011.
