Used by Jason Plato in the majority of the 2004 BTCC, after his original car (XTS007) was involved in a start-line crash at Brands Hatch. Used by Plato again in 2005.

In mid-2006 Motorbase acquired all three of SEAT UK's cars - XTS008 and XTS010 as complete cars, plus XTS011 partly striped following Plato's accident at the final race of 2005.

In 2007 Motorbase would run a 2-car entry in the BTCC. For 2008 the 3 cars were sold to BTC Racing, and again used as a 2-car BTCC entry.

At the end of 2008 the 3 cars were bought by Paul McMillan to be run for his son Liam McMillan the following year. By this stage 008 and 011 were complete cars with 010 being a spare shell.

Initial pre-season testing used 008, fitted with a 16v engine, before switching to 011, fitted with a 20v engine, for the start of the 2009 season. At the second meeting of the year at Thruxton the car was involved in big accident, with McMillan swapping to 008 for the next meeting.
