Background

Built with the purpose to race in the Swedish Volvo Turbo Cup in the beginning of the 1980's, was built by Bengt Thenander (Thenander Motorsport). Thenander raced the car in the Turbo Cup with the car between 1982-1987, then the car was rebuilt to Group-A, where Thenander used the car until the beginning of the 1990's. The car was aslo, during this time, raced in ETCC. After this the car was widen in the rear to be able to fit bigger wheels, then the car was used, a couple of races, in Special Saloon by Thenander.

Bengt Thenander then sold the car to Tomas Nyström, he used the car in the Swedish Special Saloon series of ETAB DATA Cup. The engine was replaced with a tuned regular B23-engine. Some years later the car is bought by Tony Mårtensson, and he rebuilds the car to rally, Group-A rally that is.
