HistoryBuilt by Andy Rouse Engineering in April 1994 and used by mainly as the spare car for the 1994 British Touring Car Championship, although would Kelvin Burt and Robb Gravett would each drive it at one meeting late in the year
Later used by Paul Radisich to win the end-of-season Touring Car World Cup.
One of three cars sold to Bob Leitzinger and raced by Jeff Andretti in the 1996 North American Touring Car Championship. It is not known how much the car was used as Andretti would race all three cars during the year but it is known it was used at Vancouver where it received extensive frontal damage during a 3-car accident involving Dominic Dobson and Peter Hardman. The car was striped back to a rolling shell and repaired.
In 1997 all three cars were sold by Leitzinger to Peter Hills and shipped to Australia.
We bought a complete OK car, one that had been backed (hard) into a wall and a rolling chassis. Much later during a casual inspection of the roller we noticed it was very clean underneath, and looked almost new. After further investigation we were told it was the same car Paul Radisich drove when he won the world cup. We ended up transferring all the running gear from one of the cars into it, & it became my car. It was immediately obvious the chassis was all but brand new – it was soooo different to drive & responded brilliantly to chassis adjustments etc
At the end of 1998 all three of Hills' cars were updated to the later body shape.
At the end of 2001 with the help of Mumbo Racing the running gear from Hills' championship winning car (95M 006) was transferred into this shell which Hills then raced in the Australian Super Touring Series the following season.
In early 2005 the car was sold to Adam Proctor who continued to use it in the Touring Car Challenge.
Eventually purchased, along with 95M 006, by New Zealander Mike Johns and 2010/11 converted back to 1994 bodywork with World Cup livery.
Sold to fellow New Zealander Scott O'Donnell in 2014, and during 2015 underwent a rebuild at Neale Motorsport.
