The most striking element of the B2K are the offset wheel pontoons.  Instead of having continuos bodywork covering the wheel arch and side pods, Lola has created a separate bodywork over the wheel area and opened up the front end of the side pod to air coming from both the nose diffuser (red flow arrows) and down the side of the car (blue arrows).  This will eliminate the problems of hot ambient track temperatures affecting the air temperature that the cooler receives.
