Both this and RML 26 010/11 were purchased by bamboo engineering at the start of 2011, however the late availability of the cars meant that the cars could not be shipped to Brazil in time for the first race, so bamboo were forced to run the Chevrolet Lacettis they had used in previous years. Both cars were eventually collected from RML in time for the second race of the season in Belgium, with Yukinori Taniguchi driving this car for the remainder of the year.

For 2012 the car was updated to latest spec and initially driven by Pasquale Di Sabatino, until forced to step down mid-season. A last minute deal saw Michel Nykjær drive the car in Brazil, then Robb Holland driving for his home race in the USA, with Darryl O'Young finishing out the season.

In 2013 James Nash drove the car all season, with a change of sponsor at the final two rounds of 2013 meaning the cars ran with a red livery in place of the white/blue/blue they had used for the majority of the year.
