Vehicle was purchased and brought to New Zealand in 1994. Scott and Lindsay O’Donnell campaigned the car very successfully in the South Island. Changers were made to the car mainly for the purpose of endurance racing. Changes included dry break fueling system, Proflex four-way adjustable shock absorbers, AP rotors and caliper"s front and rear, gear box and differential oil coolers. Fundamentally the car is still very much Group N style and specifications.
Luke Parker purchased the car in 2003. Shortly after that the engine suffered a conrod failure. Luke had a replacement engine built by HiTech Motorsport in Pukekohe. The car was campaigned until 2010 at which time other commitments curtailed further running of the car and it sat idle for the next eight years.
Mid 2018 I (Richard Field) purchased the vehicle. A plan was put together to rebuild the car ready for competition at a high standard both mechanically and body wise by Lodge Auto Centre Ltd . The car underwent a Motorsport NZ audit (with no items requiring attention) January 2019 when it ran at Manfeild Circuit Chris Amon. The handling, drive, power and brakes were most impressive to say the least, no issues or gremlins with the car all day. The car is fully compliant and ready to run in competition. A copy of products repaired or replaced during the rebuild is available on request. All documentation comes with the vehicle.
This would have to be one of the best examples available in a full race ready Championship winning Sierra Cosworth.
