Hi Louis,

This is Yan (noodle), a graduate student from Cambridge University. I’m currently working on a research project concerning the significance of keywords in product marketing. I really appreciate if you can spend 1 min on this tiny survey, and ‘comment’ your answer back to me.

How often do you use the words (as shown below) in search engine (like Google) if you are in need of relevant help for your Lola cars?
Please mark each option in 1, 2 or 3. (1. Never used; 2. Used sometimes; 3. Frequently used)

Lola:
Lola car:
Lola racing car:
Lola part:
Lola spare:
Lola component:
Lola heritage:
Historic Lola:
Lola service
Lola restoration

Any other frequently used words?

Thanks a lot for your support!

Sincerely,
Yan (Noodle)

Formula 5000 May 16-17, Thunderhill Raceway with CSRG. Sounds as though they have a number of 5000s coming. Thunderhill should be a wonderful tack for a 5000 car. Hope to see you there.

No problem, Les. Sorry you had trouble with the messages. Let me know if I can help later. I'm still looking forward to getting a look at your cars!

Les, I checked with the owner of the Crossle 30 (the one in the photo to the left). He said he would be glad to rent the car to you at a reasonable price for the TWS school as long as you can cover any damage. We can do either a crewed weekend or non-crewed. Your call. Registration deadline is Feb 10th. Let me know......

So sorry to hear of your troubles, Louis. Hope you have the best possible resolution. I have some open wheel cars available. The next CVAR drivers school is this month at Texas World Speedway so we should plan quickly if you would like to run it. What class of car are you interested in?

Hi Louis. Looks like you have some marvelous cars. I raced a Lola T140 back in the early 70s and also worked with Michael Roe in Can Am in 84. The big Chevy engined cars are some of my favorites. I look forward to seeing yours one of these days.

Robert Metcalf
