History
Believed to be the car used by Will Hoy in the 1993 British Touring Car Championship.

In 1994 the raced in the British Touring Car Championship by James Kaye, but only after a little wheeling and dealing.

Having enjoyed a good relationship with Toyota over the last few years I was offered a 1993 Toyota GB car but I would have to buy it for £30,000. Fortunately my employer Park Lane had just sold it's two 1993 Carinas for £50,000 each and so we managed to persuade another Park Lane customer in Asia to buy this latest car for £30,000 but with delivery at the end of the season! Provided I kept it in one piece!

So I had the car but no team Then Kevin Maxted came to the rescue. He offered to run the car for a very reasonable figure but in order to cover this I would still need, first, to win the £25,000 [for the Total Cup winner] and, second, to find another £10,000 or so. In the end I managed to find the extra money by renting the car to a Japanese team for the Spa 24 hrs. Maxted ran the car at Spa and therefore could enjoy some extra income.
James Kaye


In 1997, having spent some time in Asia, the car was purchased by Milton Leslight, who intended to run it in the Bathurst 1000. The car arrived at the track at 11am on the Saturday of the meeting have not turned a wheel since being bought by Leslight, and with plenty of work still to do. Despite missing qualifying the stewards agreed to allow the car to the race if it could manage the required 3 laps in the afternoon practice session, although that deadline was extended to the race-day morning warm-up session when it became clear the car wouldn't be ready to take to the track. By race day morning the gearbox was still out of the car and no one was sure if the engine would start so the team had no option but to abandon.

A month later the Leslight would make his debut in the car at the final round of the Australian Super Touring Championship, although failing to set a qualifying time and retiring from the first race, and not starting the second.

Undeterred, Leslight continued to run the car in the 1998 and 1999 Australian Super Touring Championship, as well as outings at Bathurst in 1998 and 1999, and Macau in 1999, but continued his run of poor results.
