Newman/Haas Sale

Lola B12/80 ex-Dempsey Racing 

  • Owned and raced by Dempsey Racing in the 2012 IMSA championship 
  • Top ten finishes at Lime Rock, Mid-Ohio and Road America 
  • Fully rebuild in 2019 including engine and gearbox 
  • Front-running entry for Masters Endurance Legends in Europe and/or USA 


We have the pleasure to offer the 2012 ex-Dempsey Racing Lola B12/80 LMP2, chassis HU05, for sale.

The B12/80 offered here is one of the last racing cars to be completed by Lola before they ceased operations in 2012. Available with powerplants from Nissan, Honda HPD, Lotus and - as with our car - the Judd BMW M3 V-8, the Lola B12/80 was the LMP2 version of the larger B08/60 chassis. With the large spinal fin, the car featured excellent stability at speed, a must for a car designed to go nearly 200-mph down the Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans. 
Its technical data are as follows:

Chassis:             Lola - Carbon fibre monocoque chassis, 2-door coupe 
Engine:              3.6 liter naturally aspirated JUDD BMW M3 V8 (derived from BMW S65)
Steering:            Rack-and-pinion steering with Kayaba power assist system
Power:                ca. 475 bhp
Gearbox:            Hewland/Lola 6-speed sequential manual gearbox
Suspension:      Double wishbone, push-rod actuated coil springs over dampers
Weight:               ca. 825 kg

HU05 was formerly owned by Dempsey Racing and was raced by Patrick Dempsey himself during the 2012 IMSA championship with top ten finishes at Lime Rock Park, Mid-Ohio, and Road America (detail race history is below in the history section).

In 2019 the car was completely overhauled and serviced with invoices totaling over €100,000. 
The work done included:

  • complete rebuild of the V8 LMP2 engine including set-up by JUDD
  • overhaul of the gearbox (stripping and crack-testing all parts)
  • new carbon clutch
  • refresh of the fuel lines and cooling system
  • new suspension triangles
  • rebuild of brake callipers
  • new master cylinders

After the rebuild the car did one shake-down and hasn’t been used since. It just needs a new fuel cell and crack-test to make it 100% race-ready.

Spares include two sets of wheels and HU05 also comes with its current DMSB Wagenpass and technical documentation.

This stunning ex-Dempsey racing Lola B12/80 LMP2 would be a front-running entry for Masters Endurance Legends while it is also ready to make its re-appearance on the US Historic racing scene including HSR’s Daytone 24hr Classic.
