BsNismo created a new cinematic fan edit of the rFactor 2 Lola T70/Howston HG6 in action at the Longford track.
Released only a few days, the Howston proved to be a very popular addition to the Image Space Incorporated rf2 line-up of cars.
The Howston HG4 and HG6 are based off the designs of the Lola T70, a successful racing car from the 1960s. In 1965 and 1966, the T70 was the fastest race car in the world, and at that point could outpace a Formula One car. It boasted stable, predictable, handling along with blinding acceleration.
With a pedigree from the Ford GT40, the Lola T70 was tested and developed by World Champion John Surtees. Though designed for endurance racing, it had much success in sprint races, due to superior handling. It is generally considered to be the car which advanced an understanding in racing that increased drag could be an acceptable penalty for increased downforce.
The T70 went through many configurations until eventually changes in sporting regulations made the car obsolete.
