CommentsRun by Triple Eight in the 2001 and 2002 BTCC where it was driven by Yvan Muller.
In 2003 the car, along with V2001-001, would be bought by GA Motorsport and driven by Gareth Howell and Paul Wallace in 2003, and by Charlie Butler-Henderson and Gavin Smith in 2004. After missing the Knockhill round in 2004, the team would run a single car for the remainder of the season driven initially by Carl Breeze and then by Gavin Pyper, although it is not known if 001 or 003 was used.
Through 2005 and 2006 both 001 and 003 would make sporadic appearances in the Britcar Production series.
In late 2006, both cars were sold to Encke Sport, a new team backed by Blackburn Rovers and Finland international goalkeeper Peter Enckelman. The team had planned to run them in the 2007 BTCC but quickly decided it was too much too soon for a new team, meaning that the cars would sit unused.
Eventually sold to a Scottish buyer and then to a Swiss Opel dealer
