Technical changesEdit

After a year out of Europe, Lola returned with an extensively developed new car. Reynard was still the dominant manufacturer, and retained many components from its previous car while introducing an F1-style high nose.

The regulation requiring long sidepods was removed, which meant that the cars became less pitch-sensitive.[1] The long —vortex generators— on the front wing endplates were banned as part of an ongoing effort to reduce costs.[2]
