There is a long list of well respected racers who have owned and raced it over the years including Martin Thomas, Richard Bull, Chris Conoley, of MASS Racing, Martin Brewer and most recently Dave Griffiths. The car has been constantly maintained and successfully campaigned season after season for decades.

Under the current custodian, the car has been re-painted with a change of livery from black with silver stripes to black and red. The car has been mechanically refreshed each winter with maintenance between every race. In recent years the car has raced predominantly with the Equipe GTS series with the occasional outing with the HSCC Guards Trophy.

The rear axle has a limited slip differential and competition half shafts. The car is fitted with 15 x 6” Minilite alloy wheels and a good set of Dunlop CR65 tyres. There is a used spare Quaife gearbox with the car as well as a spare set of wheels. The car is sold with FIA HTP papers dated to 2025 and ready to race.
