In 1999 the car was purchased by Tony Newman and raced in the later half of the Australian Super Touring Championship. Newman had started the season using the sister car before debuting this one at the Oran Park meeting.

The car would be seen again briefly in 2002 when it was driven in the opening round of the Australian Super Touring Series by Ric Shaw, eventually being sold to Bryce Peter-Budge and raced in the 2005 and 2006 Touring Car Challenge, before being moved to New Zealand.
