Sebring 2005As pointed out before on the Lola B2K/40 and the B01/60, the B05/40 also utilizes a duct in front of the rear wheels to pull air into the base area of the car to reduce drag.  Clearly this is a design element that works and Lola has continued to take advantage of its benefits.  Notice the brake duct.
Petit Le Mans 2005Nicholson-McLaren 3.4 liter normally aspirated V8 as installed in the Binne Motorsports Lola.
Petit Le Mans 2005The 2.0 liter Advanced Engine Research (AER) I4 turbo.
With the rear bodywork removed notice how simple the rear brake duct cooling is.
