History
Built in early 1989 to Group A spec and driven by Glenn Seton in the Amaroo Park, Symmons Plains and Lakeside rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship. The car was involved in a fiery crash at Lakeside and was badly damaged.

The chassis was repaired but remained unused in the team's workshop until 1993 when it was converted to 2-litre spec for Ellery Motorsport. Steven Ellery drove the car at the 1993 Sandown 500, Bathurst 1000 and at the Australian GP support race where it ran with the V8s and Group A BMWs.

In 1994 Ellery drove in the Winfield Triple Challenge and the first two rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship at Amaroo Park and Sandown, the last time a 2-litre car would run in the ATCC, before switching to the newly formed Australian Class II Championship.

Sold to Bob Tweedie in 1995, who raced it in the Australian Super Touring Championship as well as the Australian Grand Prix support and Gold Coast Super Touring Cup races.

In 1996 the car went to Kurt Kratzmann who drove it in theLakeside rounds of the Australian Super Touring Championship, plus the Gold Coast Indycar support and Bathurst 1000 support races.

Car is now owned by a private collector in Australia.
