The T210
At the end of the 1969 season, Eric realised that the Group 5 T70 Coupe was no match for the might of Porsche and Ferrari, so instead he switched his attention to the two-litre Group 6 class. This was quickly gaining interest and for 1970 a European Sportscar Championship was established especially for these prototypes. Lola developed the highly sophisticated T210 and in 1971, the T212 evolution won the Championship, beating closest rivals Chevron.
By the late 1960’s early 1970’s the world of sports car championship was going through one of the most evocative and exciting periods ever. Featuring some of the most iconic cars of all time such as the Porsche 917 and 908, Ferrari 512S, Alfa Romeo Tipo 33, and the smaller Lola’s and Chevrons. Drivers like Brian Redman, Vic Elford, Helmut Marko, Derek Bell and Jacky Ickx were furiously competing on both sides of the Atlantic at events like Le Mans, The Taga Florio, Sebring 12Hrs and Watkins Glenn. This was sportscar racing at its absolute best.

With the growing success of the smaller lighter 2-litre Group 6 cars the European 2-litre Championship was born in 1970. The two main rivals in the class were Lola and Chevron. Lola had enjoyed unprecedented success with their classic T70 sports car, with John Surtees winning the 1966 Can-Am title in such a car. Chevron had however been establishing their international reputation with the success of the 2-litre Chevron B8 and stunning B16. When the new 2-litre championship was announced for Group 5 and 6 cars, the FIA allowed open spyders which would expect a weight advantage over the coupes. Eric Broadley took advantage of this and designed the T210. Some 70Kg lighter than the B16, Jo Bonnier put the T210 on pole for the first four races of the season, winning three. The championship went on to be a closely fought battle, with Chevron eventually creating a spyder by cutting the roof off of a B16 for Brian Redman, who eventually clinched them the Championship by one point. In 1971 Chevron produced their own spyder, the B19 and the T210 was upgraded to the T212. The T212 was the most successful 2-litre model of sports racing car in the 1971 European Championship, winning five of the nine races and securing the title for Helmut Marco.
