"I'm honored to have been recognized by Lola Heritage and particularly humbled by the support of the 2006 Lola Heritage Trophy winner, noted Lola collector and racer Johan Woerheide, in receiving this marvelous trophy here at Road Atlanta," Krause said.
"LOLA Cars International has really made a big effort, through the formation of Lola Heritage and the efforts of Glyn Jones, to support, promote and recognize vintage and historic Lola racing cars all over the world. I'm just so pleased that the manufacturer, whose cars I fell in love a quarter of a century ago, care about the cars that put them on the map and that we all enjoy;" Krause continued.
Lola Heritage, SVRA and selected other sanctioning bodies are putting the final touches on several notable race weekends that will feature "50 Years of LOLA Cars" in 2008.
