Perfect!  Thanks.

The varying references to "Sport 300" and "GT 300" confuse me a bit.

Who drove it?

Several by the sounds of it.

Brad Jones won the 94 GT Production Car Championship in it, then it sounds like the Porsches got the better of it for a few years.

I spent ages chatting with Jim Zerefos at a party last night (he got it to 4th in the championship behind a bunch of Porsches in 96), so was wondering where it had got to.

You'll find it in PauL McCreery's shop (Eseery). Sitting there for many years trying to find a buyer for it.

The car holds the Bathurst record if I am not mistaken. Paul did all the race prep for it.

The car was originally raced with a S4 body as the Sport 300 wasn't released in Aust then. The following year, the car had it's Sport 300 body put back on and raced as that as S300's started being available in Aust.

A lot of people are still asking where the 'S4' car is ;)

The car itself cost Lotus factory GBP200k to build.

Thank you!

I originally thought we had something on it, but couldn't find it...

It probably doesn't help that my fingers often type "espirit" instead of "esprit". :irked:

Any ideas what he'd accept for it?
