HistoryBuilt by MSD for Peugeot Sport UK and used in the 1998 RACMSA British Touring Car Championship by Tim Harvey.
At the end of the season both this and the sister car were brought by Paul Grimm and shipped to Australia.
Plans to run cars in the Australian Super Touring Championship were cut short with the team eventually just running a single car for Patrick Watts at the first 2 meetings (4 races) of the year. During that time Watts would start every race from the front row of the grid (on pole once) and taking one win.
The cars would remain unused from then until late 2012, when purchased by Patrick Watts and returned to the UK.
Paul Grimm still had the cars so I phoned him up in Australia and he said he’d love to see them out again. He bought the entire team at the end of the ’98 season and they were still sitting in his showroom.
