The Lola B98/10 was the first serious second generation customer prototype.  It was a bold attempt to create a car that was capable of running up front but affordable for the privateer to run.  In some ways it was too ambitious.  In others it became the building block for further developments of the Lola customer LMPs such as the B2K/10.  Even the current Lola-MG EX257 can trace its lineage to the B98/10.
