History

Believe to have original been used by John Cleland in the 1994 FIA Touring Car World Cup

For 1995 the car was run in the 1995 South African Touring Car Championship by Michael Briggs.

Sold to John Henderson and raced in the Amaroo Park round of the 1997 Australian Super Touring Championship, and at both Oran Park round of the 1998 Championship

During the week of the 1998 Bathurst 1000 the car was sold to Mike Newton after Newton's own car suffered an engine failure during Friday's final qualifying session. Newton had only wanted to buy a replacement engine but it was an all or nothing deal so team-mate Jamie Miller was dispatched to Sydney to complete the purchase.
