Driven by Dan Welch in the 2014 BTCC season, although the late arrival of parts meant would not be completed in time for the opening round.

Driven again by Welch in 2015, although a broken foot meant he would sit out the opening meeting and problems obtaining engine parts meant the team would miss the Snetterton round.

At the Silverstone round the car was involved in a multi-car accident, forcing Welch to switch to the team's other car (GPRM NGTC 009) for the final race of the year.

There was a chain reaction of events on the opening lap, as I basically got caught up in another incident, as somebody swiped me at the rear before I received a secondary collision from Hunter Abbott. There’s significant damage to the car and repairing it will impede our progress with the engine between now and Brands Hatch.
Dan Welch

The car was repaired over the winter and again used by Welch for the 2016 season until the Snetterton meeting where the car was again involved in a huge accident, leaving the car damaged beyond repair.

I’ve walked away unhurt although I know I’m going to be in a little bit of discomfort in the morning. The car on the other hand is as good as scrap – I’ve been told that it is the worst wreck the scrutineers have seen.
Dan Welch

The team transferred all the running gear over to 009, which had already been stripped earlier in the year, and Welch completed the season using that car.
