HUNTINGDON-BASED Lola Cars claimed their best ever Formula Three result at the weekend when three cars using their chassis finished on the podium at the Nurburgring, Germany.
The manufacturer re-entered Formula Three in 2003, dominating the UK circuit with their B06/30 chassis before taking the European stage this year.
Company spokesman Sam Smith said of the result:
"It was one of the best weekends for us in recent times and a terrific boost for all the staff back at the factory.
"Everyone plays their part in the success and now we can look forward to challenging for the title in our first ever year of European competition."
British driver Joey Foster took the win in the race, and the next round will again be at the Nurburgring, on 17 June.

RAMSEY motorbike racer Phillip Cossey came away from Croix en Ternois in France having climbed to 10th place in the Rookie 600 Cup last weekend.
Phillip, 19, who has taken podium places this season, rode well to leap into the top 10 in the competition that features 32 novice riders and is organised by the British Motorcycle Racing Club.
He will contest the next of the remaining eight rounds at Snetterton on 10th June, where he will wear a black armband in memory of his mentor Gus Scott, who died on that date last year racing in the Isle of Man TT.
Phillip is looking to progress to the 1000cc circuit next season, and as such is looking for local sponsors to help make this possible.
