Comments
Built late 2004 to replace V2003-010 following it's accident at Knockhill, and used by James Thompson for the final 3 meetings of the year, allowing him to secure the BTCC title.

Unused after the end of the season until sold to Tony Tait in late 2010. Rebuilt using parts from V2001-001 and fitted with a 500 bhp turbo-charged engine.
