History

Built by Vic Lee Motorsport and raced in the 1992 British Touring Car Championship by Tim Harvey.

During a test session at Snetterton prior to the final race of the year Harvey spun and backed into the barrier resulting in minor damage to the rear of the car. For the final race of the year at Silverstone, with Harvey still in contention for the championship the team decided to swap cars - Harvey would take over team-mate Steve Soper's car whilst Soper would drive Harvey's now-repaired car. What followed would become part of Touring Car legend.

On the opening lap, Soper spun whilst trying to overtake David Leslie for third and was hit by Robb Gravett's Peugeot, resulting in significant damage to the rear of the BMW. Despite the damage Soper was able to work his way back through the field eventually overtaking championship rival John Cleland, and putting Harvey through into a title-winning position. With two laps to go Soper and Cleland clashed forcing both cars out of the race and meaning Harvey would secure the championship title.

At the end of the year it was one of a number of cars purchased by the newly formed Team Dynamics and driven by Matt Neal in the 1993 British Touring Car Championship.

In late 1997 the car was purchased by Team Mobimech and fitted with a 3.2-litre 6-cylindar engine. Between 1998-2003 the car would be used in the Swedish SLC endurance race series.

It's believed the car then spent time in Denmark and Norway, before being brought back to the UK and sold to Rick Michels and shipped to New Zealand. Eventually acquired by Warren Good and restored back to original 1992 BTCC livery.
