Notes on the cars:

  1. Lola T860 [HU1] (Peter Heckmann): Invoiced to Carl Haas 25 June 1981. Tested by Jacques Villeneuve Sr at Mid-Ohio in early August 1981, but not raced until Juan Cochesa drove it at Road America in July 1982. To Bob Katz for SCCA racing in 1983. Peter Heckman (Green Oaks, IL) then raced the car in ECAR Formula Atlantic in 1985. The car was advertised in 1987, but its subsequent history is unknown. At some point it was acquired by Noah Lacona (Des Moines, Iowa) and remained with him until his death in 2017. In 2024, the car was acquired from his estate by his grandson Jim Knox in north Texas.
