The car was used in time attack and won the outright uk championship 3 years running. It was then taken to Holland where it won the following 2 years in a row. The car was then used sporadically in time attack and races in Holland before returning to the uk a few years ago. The engine had a top and tail a couple of years ago and has been largely unused since. This car cost over £125000 to build and was absolutely untouchable in everything it did. It would be eligible for a large number of race series including castle Combe saloons, cscc turbo tin tops, cscc new millennium, toyo tyres racing saloons, and many others. It comes with a large amount of very expensive spares including a full set of new shock absorbers that cost £4000 each! Also loads of billet suspension and brake spares. 


I’m asking a fraction of what it cost to build and definitely worth more in parts alone especially including the spares with the car!
