This car HU18 is believed to be the Lola Works development car for the T460. It was loaned to Ted Wentz in September to complete the 1975 season after his first T360, HU7, was written off in testing by Roy James, the getaway drive in the Great Train Robbery. The history file contains and extract from Lola Heritages Scrapbook where Wentz recalls testing the modified T360 with Bobby Rayhal.
For the 1976 British Formula Atlantic Series HU18 went on to be driven for the first two rounds at Brands Hatch by Tony Trimmer, winning on both occasions and for the remainder of the season by Mike King. The race results for HU18 for 1975 and 1976 are listed below.

After the 1976 season HU18 sold to Carl Liebich in Canada who campaigned the car in the 1977 Labatts Canadian Formula Atlantic series and the 1978 and 1979 North American Formula Atlantic series. In the records we have for 1977 and 1978 HU18 is listed as a T460. It is unclear at this stage as to whether it had been fully converted to T460 specification or not. It is interesting to note that in 1979 it is listed as Lola T560 (460-HU18).
