BTCC Ex-Works 1996 MSD Honda Accord Chassis No. 18

This Car is the 1997 BTCC total Privateers Cup Winning car of Robb Gravett, this comes complete with the Trophy itself and even some Pit boards! This car was acquired in early 1997 direct from Linder Motorsport the works German STW squad, the car was transported directly to Graham Hathaway Racing in Essex and then 2 days later to Anglesey where it tested ahead of the 2nd BTCC round. It won 2 x Independents Trophies and finished in 10th place in the points! A further 2 x 10th position points finishes assured the season winning the Total Privateers cup,the car only retired twice, once being with alternator belt failure.

For 1998 Gravett switched to the Lee Brookes Motorsport squad winning 6 Independents Trophies & coming 2nd behind Tommy Rustads ex Menu Championship winning Williams Laguna. Brookes Gravett & the car went to the Bathurst 1000 of 1998 appearing 8th in the qualifying shoot out, it DNF after 49 laps.

Subsequent history points to a re-shell although this has yet to be proven, its currently Silver in the TCR Brookes livery assuming an entry to the 1999 BTCC, the car was then replaced by a Prodrive chassis. The car was acquired by Nick Agloupas Car Centre racing in Greece where it ran only twice in 2003,the car was re-patriated in mid 2014 and is now available for sale.

Both cars are available separately or together as a potential team, each car has a running spares package of Rims, Ratios and Roll-bars, if both cars are bought together a substantial package of spares will be included.

These cars have been unraced since 2003 and are presented in a good usable condition after any required and expected recommisioning has taken place.

No attempt has been made to start either car !
