Word had reached Till that a partnership with Yamaha was in the works. Such an alliance of storied brands would see them join Formula E together. With Yamaha’s thundering engines and Lola’s ageless chassis, they hoped to electrify the world of electric racing.

The reborn Queen of Motorsport was heading back to the track, her legendary tale set to continue with fresh heroes and new speed records. As Lola’s roar echoed once more across the prairie, Till smiled, knowing this was only the beginning of their return to glory. The legend had been reborn.

Word of the Lola-Yamaha alliance spread swiftly through the Formula E paddock. Their storied names added further luster to an already illustrious grid. Stellantis, Porsche, and Mahindra had long flown their flags in the electric competition. Now Jaguar joined them, with Electric Racing Technologies’ innovative solutions in tow.

Yet one legend remained steadfast in its commitment – Nissan. The Japanese giant, spearheading technological progress for decades, reaffirmed its faith in an electric future. From its factory team to McLaren’s expanded armada, Nissan’s solutions would continue surging through the circuits until 2030.

Lola’s return stirred memories of past glory on tracks around the globe. Privateers proudly piloted their nimble T70 to historic Daytona victories. The Mk. 6 lives on in Ford’s immortal GT. Open-wheel arena saw Lola dominate from Indy to ChampCar, their machines upholding English pride across the Americas.

Now a new chapter beckoned, as Lola and Yamaha’s electric potential rooted them in this rising tide of innovation.
