giant 1/5th scale models were first introduced to the race teams, in 1993,
when Nigel Mansell
won the PPG Indy Car World Series Championship
in this Lola T93. That Hewman/Haas #5 car, can be seen in our Indy Car section
in full racing colors. The model now sits on display in the Newman/Haas Racing
corporate offices in Lincolnshire, Illinois.
Quite a few 1/5th
scale Lolas, Reynards, and Swifts for teams like Forsythe Racing, and Rahal Racing
were produced in later years, and now sit in corporate offices and showrooms
both in Canada and the US.
This 1/5th scale "sculpture" you
see here, was fashioned from those same molds, and was a very popular item at trade shows, and special
event attractions. These models as you can see from the pictures
were just about 36" long, and very impressive.
