HistoryBuilt by Dave Cook Racing during the latter part of 1991 as a replacement for one of the original cars that was destroyed at Donington. The would be driven by Bob Berridge in the final two meetings of for the British Touring Car Championship.
The following year the 2 ex-works cars were sold to Ecurie Ecosse, who ran the cars in re-engineered form in the 1992 British Touring Car Championship. It's believed this car was driven by David Leslie.
In 1993 the car was sold to Ian Khan, who drove it in the BTCC under the Tamchester Team Maxted banner. Initially the car ran in white livery before changing mid-season to the light it would retain for the next few years. The car was also entered in the Spa-Francorchamps 24h but failed to show up.
Khan returned to the BTCC in 1994 but withdrew half way through the season; the car now being too far off the pace of the rest of the field. Over the next few years Khan would run the car at the Nürburgring 24h.
Sold to Derek Hale who ran the car in the Formula Saloons Championship, then to Keith Butcher who ran in Welsh Sport & Saloons, then to Larry Phillips who ran the car in both Formula Saloons and the Welsh series.
Little is know of the car's subsequent history until it was acquired by John Hammersley in around 2005. By this stage the car had been reduced to a rolling shell - the previous owner based near Croft circuit had intended to turn it into a rallycross car.
The car remained in storage until it was sold to Nariman (Naz) Hosseinian in June 2007. Over the next 10 years, Hosseinian attempted to rebuild the car although the project was never fully completed.
In August 2017, the car was acquired by Dan Furr, editor of Performance Vauxhall magazine, who set about restoring to 1991 BTCC livery.
