BonGrip Lola T280 HU2. The Le Mans car 1972. Reine Wisell had an excident before the race, so the drivers at 24 hours was Jo Bonnier, Gerard Larrousse, and Gijs van Lennep. The car was very fast, but Jo Bonnier had the fatal crash early in the morning. Both "Ecurie Bonnier Switzerland" cars had DNF and the team boss died.
