History
Build by RML as an endurance-spec car for Opel Team Belgium's entry in the 1996 24 heures de Francorchamps. Uniquely, the car was right-hand drive; all other RML-built Vectras were left-hand drive.

Unused in 1997, it was eventually used by Snobeck in the 1998 Championnat de France de Supertourisme where was shared by Patrick Herbert and James Ruffier.

Sold to Fondev racing in 1999 and driven by Marc Hervé in selected round of the 1999 and 2000 French championship.

Unused since the end of 2000, the car was eventually purchased by Steffan Irmler in 2019.
