History

Initial suggestions that this was a 1993 ex-Ecurie Ecosse / David Leslie car have now been discounted, with evidence to suggest it is in fact an earlier chassis.

Thought to be one of the cars built by Dave Cook Racing for the 1991 Vauxhall BTCC team and driven by John Cleland and Jeff Allam. The following year the 2 ex-works cars were sold to Ecurie Ecosse - one driven by David Leslie, the other shared by Bobby Verdon-Roe and Alex Portman. It is not known who drove which chassis.

In 1993 the car was sold to Ian Khan, who drove it in the BTCC under the Tamchester Team Maxted banner. Khan returned to the BTCC in 1994 but withdrew half way through the season.

The car would re-appear in the late 1990s/early 2000s in the Formula Saloon Championship in the hands of Keith Philips.

Little is know of the car's subsequent history until it was acquired by John Hammersley some 5 years later. 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, and has been undergoing restoration since then.

In August 2017, the car was acquired by Dan Furr, editor of Performance Vauxhall magazine.
