History
Believed to be used by in the 1995 British Touring Car Championship.

One of three cars sold to Bob Leitzinger and raced by Jeff Andretti in the 1996 North American Touring Car Championship. The car was extensively damaged during qualifying at the Toronto round when Andretti spun on cold tyres on his first flying lap and backed the car into a wall.

In 1997 all three cars were sold by Leitzinger to Peter Hills and shipped to Australia. Once repaired the car was run by Hills for a number of drivers in the 1997 and 1998 Australian Super Touring Championship.

At the end of 1998 all three of Hills' cars were updated to the later body shape.

In 1999 the car was driven full time by Dean Canto in the Australian Super Touring Championship, and also by Canto and Leanne Ferrier-Tander at the Bathurst 500.

In 2000 the car would again be used in the Australian Super Touring Championship, Alan Gurr driving for the first half of the year, with Mark Zonneveld taking over from Symmons Plains.

In 2005 it was sold to Adam Proctor
