History
Built for the 1995 24 heures de Francorchamps where it was driven by Marc Duez, Nelson Piquet and Roberto Ravaglia, finishing second. The race also counted as a round of the Belgian Procar series with Duez as the registered driver.

At the end of the season the car would be driven by Steve Soper in the FIA Touring Car World Cup, before then being immediately shipped to Australia for the F1 Grand Prix support races where it was driven by Geoff Brabham.

In 1996 the car was again driven by Brabham in the Gold Coast Indycar, Grand Prix and Bathurst 1000 support races, and Australian Super Touring Championship, although Brabham would switch to a later chassis (E36 STC 96/008) for the final two meetings of the championship.

Unused in 1997/98, the car became part of the Paul Morris Motorsport stable in 1999 but would remain largely unused except for a single out in the Queensland Raceway round of the 1999 Australian Championship driven by John Teulan, and at the final 3 rounds of the 2000 Championship driven by Owen Kelly.

In 2001 the car was purchased by John Cockburn and shipped to the UK.
